1. Being a big fan of Arsenal football club and an avid admirer of the footballing talent that is Mesut Özil. It seems rather appropriate to express my happiness with his arrival through this series of posters. Wilkommen zu Die Arsenal Mesut Özil.

    New Work

    In my day job at Glyph we recently completed the new brand identity for the Football Business Awards, which is taking place at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium later this year. I got to draw a nice vector illustration and worked with my colleague Sam Knott on the logo and general identity.

    The branding is based around that idea that business (the green element) has become such an integral part of how we enjoy football, if it’s taken away it alters the game entirely (the football in the logo becomes just a circle, the stadium a mere pitch). The awards were established to celebrate the unsung businesses that hold the game as we know it together.

    Disclaimer: I don’t actually like football.

  3. In the process of developing the identity for SpringsTec Fair 2013 I started the development of a bespoke typeface design for the main logotype. The subject of the event being focused on springs led me to use a twin stroke for the letterforms based on the concept that springs are elastic objects that store mechanical energy. Using a geometric grid characterises the circular form of spring objects further emphasised by subtle overlaps. The typeface is a work in progress that I hope to refine later on this year.

    design-think:

    I’ve long questioned what I see as the Apple aesthetic. Those bevelled buttons, drop shadows and realistic patterns or textures are styling rather than design, and make many companies’ websites and apps seem similar, almost as if they’re a subsidiary of Apple.

    So I was glad to read this post by…

  9. Brand identity for a marketing initiative. Navigate media is a collective of 10 bloggers specializing in niche travel sectors.

    The main circular ident comprises of ten points that represent ten angles or ‘perspectives’ around the globe. The varied colour palette symbolises the different markets that Navigate Media cater to.

    A digital format document was created as a sales tool showcasing the collective and individual reach of the group through various online and social media outlets.

    As a result the group have so far succeeded to secure Samsung as a main sponsor.
