  • Ignite Logo Design Worth peeking at this little project I completed back in 2013 still looking strong!

  • Leigh Timmis Website Design Leigh is a round the world cyclist and speaker. His stories of survival self-motivation and the kindness of strangers have been published in the international and national press (ABC Australia BBC Daily Telegraph) as well as him making appearances on BBC television and radio. Leigh undertook a 44000 mile round the world trip with 5 a day to spend taking on the frigid winter of Tibet the desert tracks of Australia and South Pacific storms. He came face to face with a lion and sang to bears to hopefully prevent attack. Leigh was detained by armed Russian soldiers and drugged and robbed in Singapore His return home required Lee to look how he could leverage his passion for adventure day to day. Leigh chose to combine this passion and joy to provide unique talks and motivational speeches and required a web presence in order to promote his services. Armed with a series of breathtaking images from across the globe as well as a practiced writing art sharpened by his regular reports home. It was these two elements that became the fulcrum of the site design with large expansive image spaces to show off his photography and clean clear typography to allow his blog writing to shine. The whole site is wrapped in a CMS which allows Leigh to create rich image soaked magazine style blog pages recalling his exciting trip and investigating the landscapes and humanity he encountered along the way. The feedback from the Leigh has been exuberant: Excellent Looking great! bloody awesome! Visit: Leigh Timmis Adventurer online.

  • Designing Branding that Lasts Kieran Harrod brand designer with an office at Friar Gate Studios and tent folder extraordinaire discusses an issue facing many businesses looking to re-brand. This article was written for CQ Business Life published by Derby Cathedral Quarter. As I packed away our tent in heavy drizzle after camping at a family festival in Manchester. Others around collapsed tents too and I noticed a good few folks piling their tents in the rubbish bins. It struck me that there are tents cheap enough or perhaps too much effort to pack up correctly that they are just thrown away. Alone the rest of our party headed to enjoy the final days festivities I extracted the first peg mulling over an upcoming project. I was the second designer the client had instructed and wed chatted about their previous experience with an online service whod provided a capable design but one that they had no confidence in putting their name to. The brand like so many tents around me was disposable cheap and unremarkable likely to be scrapped as the customer suggested within 18 months. With some consideration it was decided that they needed to invest in a memorable solution from the start and asked me to work with them to achieve this. Carefully wrapping the guide ropes I thought of the work Id recently completed for Ashbourne-based Henmore Health who were looking to bring a modern professional look to the services they provided at their GP Practice. Seeking a brand that would survive in the ever uncertain healthcare sector and something all of their stakeholders could get behind. Together with the Henmore team through discussion experimentation and hard work I developed a brand inspired by the geography of Ashbourne anchored by the Shrovetide goals which also looks out from the town with confidence. Work in progress on the Henmore Health branding Folding the damp fabric tent into its bag I began to plan some ideas about how to achieve an equally successful design for my latest client. Creating memorable brands is hard work I dont want to my designs to be thrown out like a cheap tent after brief use but to be cherished and looked after so they can be used year after year. Final tent-free words to Danny Smart at Henmore Health: Kieran did a terrific job with the Henmore Health branding and the solution expertly met the brief we provided. Kieran understood the importance of embedding local culture in a brand that enjoys its heritage but is strong enough to venture anywhere Few I think can capture this the way Kieran has.
