I was in Derby this morning and to make things equal with my trip to Nottingham last week, I visited QUAD (Derby’s contemporary arts venue, cinema and bar). You know the one, it’s all pointy angles and curiously wonky pillars, by the Assembly Rooms.

East Midlands School of Motoring,(EMSOM) a well established Derby driving school.
Owner Dave and colleague Geoff were looking for a presence on the web to direct potential students to but also a modern looking first impression for internet users.
The brief was small, to design a 1 page site, but the client was open to suggestion on how it would look, having no existing brand identity to work with.

Spotted this batterd van in Nottingham the other day and thought that some chap had a genius idea getting aboutthisvan.co.uk plastered over the side. The van was pretty rusty and had a fine gaffa tape fixing job above the cab.

Took a detour whilst in the city to visit Nottingham Contemporary this afternoon. I’m not the worlds biggest fan of contemporary art, but I like the gallery (the lace effect on the metal work outside is excellent, and reflects the lace making history of the area). Inside has a great atmosphere (excluding the invigilators. with achingly stylish haircuts and skinny jeans).

Among the 1001 thing’s on the list of things to do when starting the business, a few have sneaked (snook?) up on me.
Exactly what tone should I set when corresponding with clients? I’m particularly thinking about in email correspondence. I’m sure I have a phone voice…

As long as the project is agreed on before 5pm on the 24th if June, I’ll just knock a straight 25% off the bill for my services. It’s as simple and straighforward as that, with just a couple of terms and conditions.

Hello and a warm welcome to the blog of Kieran Harrod Design & Marketing.
You’ll notice the blog is still in ‘beta’ mode as I get to grips with the bog platform (textpattern as you asked.)
Over the coming weeks the look should evolve and get a little tidier and in line with the rest of the site.
Kieran did a terrific job with the Henmore Health branding and the solution expertly met the brief we provided. It was great to work with a professional brand designer who offered significant value for money and someone we would be happy to recommend.
Kieran understood the importance of embedding local culture in a brand that enjoys its heritage but is strong enough to venture anywhere. We are proud of Henmore Health, proud of the brand and proud to serve the people of Ashbourne where it was born. Few I think can capture this in graphic design the way Kieran has. Thank you.

On a 600gsm stock my business cards are fabulous, really sturdy and thick, they also have a great feel to the finish. They also feature some of my fave projects to make a pocket portfolio!
When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.
At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
