Keeping an eye out on what companies and brands are doing is important to my practice but also something I enjoy. There are any number of sites and blogs around, some of which I follow.
LogoLounge is one of those and each year they produce a Trends report, looking at themes and developments in the world of brand.
It was good to see it reproduced in Creative Review as it had slipped down the list in my RSS reader (Pulse for Android, get it). It’s always an interesting analysis if a little subjective on what the editor see’s logo wise, but I always like to guess what will be on it and see if any I’ve spotted match.
This year I predicted Gradients, which was a sitter, Banding, which I guess sits with gradients, and Bucky’s (or triangles). Of the others I’d really not hit on Blur (perhaps because I don’t like it) or Brown, despite loving brown.

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.

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?
