Chasing Rainbows Poster Competition

BikeFest Chasing Rainbows Poster Competition

I love a competition. Actually, my family (my Mum in particular) are rather lucky when it comes to winning them! So, with that in mind and a prize to strive towards, I’ve submitted a design for the BikeFest Chasing Rainbows Competition. It’s a poster design competition, paying homage to the much loved vintage bicycle poster.

The winning entry will best capture the vintage style of the traditional bicycle poster.

One winner will be selected , their poster design will be used in an outdoor media campaign in the lead up to the main event.

Stay tuned to see how I do…

Infograph (Basics)

Here’s an example of an infograph I create recently. An infograph in it’s most basic form – but fun to do nonetheless.

I fancy an infograph

As a designer, there’s a wee part of our personalities (sometimes more) that indicate some mild traces of OCD. We have that eye for detail and an obsession for achieving perfection. So it’s no surprise that the challenge of crafting an infograph gets us a little excited! Infographs are the perfect example of where creativity meets functionality and where values meet graphics. To create a sexy infograph is honestly a rock-star moment and hours can go by when attempting to achieve such a feat. Well, for me anyway…

The Design Surgery have created a series of infographs / dash boards / data visualisation for Racontour, a weekly 16-20 page special interest report supplement featured in The Times newspaper.

Rock ‘n’ Roll! I’m a big fan of DS and a good infograph too.

I heart typography

This cool piece of typography caught my eye whilst perusing the line up for this year’s Semi-permanent conference.

I’m always on the hunt for inspiring type and Luca Ionescu from Likemindedstudio has a style to impress! With a beautiful illustrative technique ranging from industrial to skater art he’ll no doubt be the speaker to watch at SP 2012.


G’n’T! It’s time to celebrate!

The moment has arrived for me to officially launch my website

There’s a bunch of creative projects to check out ranging from brand identity, print, publishing and web design (to name a few) so please take a peek!

If there’s something that takes you fancy please let me know by making a comment!

I’ll be posting inspirational finds on my blog and updating my folio as frequently as possible so watch this space for fabulous things to come…

Happy days!
