The Beginnings of a Project

19 January 2016, 10:47

The spark of an idea for a larger project inspired by former Derby politician Samuel Plimsoll.

Derby Parks Logo

I spotted this rather handsome “Derby Parks” logo on a sign, but I can’t find any more info about it…

Friar Gate Studios - Spark Co-Working

19 May 2014, 10:22

I’ve taken on some co-working space at the Spark Connect Derby facility at Friar Gate Studios. I’m incredibly blessed to do something I love (design that is, not the paperwork, oh no, far from it) in close proximity to the people I love (the better half and 2 sproglets).

Tree Kedleston

Tree is the Magic Number

8 May 2013, 14:39

Walking the other day in the Kedleston Hall with some of the family, we headed, not too far, to a tree atop a hill in a lamb filled field.

Belper

Pictures of Belper, Derbyshire

29 March 2012, 23:10

So I made myself a weak excuse to get out of the studio this afternoon and walk around Belper taking a bunch of pictures. It’s a quite remarkable little town once you look above the shop signs, some excellent buildings.

The March sunshine made things exceptionally pleasant, barely a cloud in the sky and quite barmy temperatures…

Derbyshire Snow

5 February 2012, 21:18

I suppose Derbyshire Snow is much like most other snow and like most of the UK, we had some on Saturday afternoon and Evening which led to a rather wonderful sight Sunday Morning.

After a morning of fun in the snow and an afternoon of fixing gutter de-icing and yard clearing (I am Man), I managed to grab the NEX5 and dashed around the corner for some photos. The sun was struggling a touch but thanks to the beauty of the area and the width of the 16mm lens, I got some nice shots.

On the Wheel

17 October 2011, 16:57

So we made it onto the Wheel in Derby at the weekend. It was a overcast (till about 30 minutes after we got off, typical!) and we couldn’t see quite as far as I had imagined. I could see the Pride Park flyover for example, but not the stadium.

Wheely Quiet

13 October 2011, 10:30

I’m shaking it off now I think, so here’s a gentle introduction back to things. Some pictures of the big wheel that currently hangs above Derby demanding money to see the sights.

I’ve a few issues with the thing. Firstly, the sights of Derby? Seriously, you’ve not been have you? There are no sights in Derby really. The UK’s smallest Cathedral (I think) and Westfield Derby, that’s about the lot.

Ha Ha

31 August 2011, 20:58

The latest exhibition at QUAD Derby is Ha-Ha Road, an exploration apparently of the use of humor in contemporary art. It advertised itself to me quite nicely via a hefty dose of jokes via Twitter, good, bad and ugly

Council Logo Tour

5 August 2011, 12:08

After bemoaning the quality of the new Amber Valley Logo yesterday, I took a look at neighboring council logo’s, to see what they are offering.

So here is my tour of Derbyshire via the medium of council logo’s starting in the south…

Brass Eye at the QUAD

22 June 2011, 17:43

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.

GENEROUS WORDS

We were a new business start-up looking to create a fun but professional image for our company. After talking with a number of graphic designers we chose Kieran, who appeared to be the best fit for us. We have since been delighted by all the work he has done for us and are looking forward to working closely with him as our business grows.

When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.


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. 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?
