Originally conceived as a Christmas logo variant this was, in truth, little more than an opportunity to produce some rampantly neo-Victorian typography. I love the intricacy of those old, engraved logos and letterheads and always like to work in that style, although my efforts are very modest compared to the original craftspeople of that age.
I love coming up with “variations on a theme” within design work and so it’s great to work with businesses that deliver diverse services or products. Here’s a global logo and a property specific variant for a client who also provides high level accountancy services and sells art & craft items, all with a fun, funky twist.
Logo for one of the more interesting guitar pickup builders in the UK. There is a more complex version that has an oil refinery incorporated (!) but I much prefer this strong, simple design which passes the “would it look great on a T-shirt?” test that I apply to my logo work.
Image advertising a group of ladies of a certain age who go out wearing red hats, for some strange reason. Used my daughter’s photography as the start point and gave it an Art Deco/airbrush treatment to suggest a certain style and sophistication.
