Bespoke illustration based on a QR code

Supporting illustration for emotional design purposes to communicate the excitement of Augmented Reality, and with a soft visual spot for soviet heroic design and monumental art, I took a QR code and experimented with perspective for a faux 3-D graphic.


EWF Energy – Logo concept
EWF Energy – Logo concept

EWF Energy – Logo concept

Morphing the form of an exciting product and the 3 letters of the company name – “EWF” – to create a logo that compliments and reinforces the products nature and promise.

As a concept, and therefore still at an early stage, planning for multiple uses and delivery I envisage the colours able to change depending on media implementation.

Kin Minkey with added Fro

Kin Minkey with added Fro

Kin Minkey an illustration of a Monkey with a hairdo to die for (if you're balder than the proverbial coot – like me).

Originally designed without hair for a children's site I have, for fun, produced a number of versions including: Policeman; Rock Star; Emo; Alien; Nurse; Comb-over; and Guru.


Logo for Disney Interactive Media Group
Disney Interactive Media Group – concept

Disney Interactive Media Group – concept

While contracting, alongside the Design Team at Disney Interactive Media Group (EMEA) in London, I took the opportunity to conceive, design and produce a logo concept.

Taking visual cues from gaming I designed a “joystickesque” illustration into the well know Brand Logo.


Dead Mouse illustration
Dead Mouse illustration

Dead Mouse Lives!

Do you remember seeing flash animations on websites that prevented you from getting to the main content, often with a “Skip Intro” button that looped you back to the start of the animation rather than letting you actually skip it?

Dead Mouse Lives is an illustration for fun that celebrates all the interweb fashions and fads that come & go.


Shift Logo concept
Shift Logo – concept

Shift Logo – concept

In a response to an open call for submissions from Designers & Artists, for Shift online magazine, I designed the word to reflect it's pronunciation (in English).

Designing form to follow the word, it's meaning and sound – an exploration merging the meaning within to express aesthetic synthesis.

Pixel Hybridy Invaded

Pixel Hybridy Invaded – illustration

Alien abductee and probed! Take one unfortunate abductee throw in some Alien probing and put on your tinfoil hats.

The late 70's saw an invasion of large cabinets emitting beeps, blips and boops as crowds of kids gathered round to offer up tribute of a trillion 10p coins – all must bow down and pay homage.


BPI logo concept
BPI logo – concept

BPI logo – concept

A(nother) three letter ligature concept this time for the letters B, P & I.

As an agency involved in music I wanted to allow the form to express the technology behind delivery methods, both current and past, taking visual cues from the ubiquitous On button on modern devices together with analogue tape control mechanisms of yesteryears Walkman.

Chavbo – illustration

Chavbo – illustration

An illustration of one of an army of chavs found across this green and, once, pheasant ridden land.

Modern Britain's fashion – a shell suited declaration of “Individuality”.


GCD logo concept
GCD logo – concept

GCD logo – concept

Yep, another other, three letter ligature concept for a logo.

Taken the letters G, C, & D and designed for a fictional Global Corporation Department (the ‘D’ doesn't work for me either, I'll have to think of a better word beginning with the letter D).

The Hive – design for an architectural screen

An architectural screen design for The Hive with a solid 40% covering of the available surface (approximately 9.5m by 45m) acting as a baffle to light and sound. I envisaged the two major verticals, within the copper coated weave, filled with ivy to compliment a weathered metalic green & fulfil the briefs call for "robust" materials.

The competition, run by Argent, saw me shortlisted down to the final 20 artists & designers – with a judging panel led legendary designer Peter Saville.

The final work selected can be seen here.
