Logo for studio complex and generally hangout of miserable, dusty, heartless old curmudgeon (i.e. our converted garage/man cave).
Generally just another excuse for more Victorian typography, more interlocking, oversized init-caps, more crosshatch shading blah, blah.
This one is leather-bound and if you get close enough to your screen, you can actually smell the rich mahogany.
Now sadly defunct but I believe it was an ideal place to plot widespread civil disobedience. Or drink coffee.
Following the closure of the creative hub that was the Revolucion Coffee bar, the music briefly continued at The Blue Lion pub so, rather obviously, I used a blue lion as a theme for the posters and later logo.
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 wanted to do something with a “Soviet propaganda” vibe. Went for the birds looking like a bomber fleet and like the slightly sinister result.
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.
