Posted: 22 June 2011, 17:43 | In: Art Derby

    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.

    EMSOM Website

    Back to School

    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 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).

    Setting the Tone

    Among the 1001 thing’s on the list of things to do when starting the business, a few have sneaked (snook?) up on me.

    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.)

We are really happy with the comprehensive branding solution that Kieran has put together. It was very important for LEL to have impact and be visible to the public as well as supporting the cyclists with essential kit. Kieran seamlessly brought together multiple elements to give the brand continuity and help position LEL as a noteworthy cycling event.

Logo Project Delivery, What Files Should You Expect? »

At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive.
