A clean, modern, design to show how Foreshore Consultancy Services can assist in moving their clients forward into the future. The client requested that purple be included in the design, but other than that no colours were specified. The Gold was chosen to help give the appearance of class and high-quality services that they strive for at FSC.
The business card had to appear modern and professional and be clear to read. It would be printed on a satin finish further adding to the high-end luxury appearance the brand wanted to portray.
Paradise clothing is a relaxed, island-based clothing line that is aimed at men and women in their early twenties with a wanderlust and need for adventure.
I created this brand with island life in mind. Living close to one of Guernsey’s biggest surf spots gave me the spark to create my own clothing brand. The inspiration behind these came from the culture and attitude around outdoor summer sports.
The logo I designed had to be bold and create an impact so that even on a hot summer's day it’s easily seen and recognised without question.
The colours are typically that of the Guernsey sea all year round with different hues of blue and shades of green. The actual designs themselves were to merge the idea of freedom with nature-based subjects.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project and feel very satisfied with the final printed designs.
Louie "Sweep" Le Prevost
Some times the most rewarding jobs are those helping a friend make start their new career. Louie asked me to put together a business card for him, and as a first draft we came up with this.
The brief was for it to resemble a £1 note, which are still used in Guernsey where the two of us are from. This was something that proved to be much harder than I first anticipated as something so simple that is used on a daily occurrence is also so iconic to the island. From tracing the “L” from a pound sign found on the actual note, the faint patterns and shapes, to the adaptation of the image to make it look printed.
We have more ideas to come and this has not ended up being the final piece as we have since came to the conclusion that this being so locally themed has perhaps limited its effectiveness. The next draft will be soon!
This was a small freelance project which I undertook for Black Vanilla. They asked me to produce a sticker with a traditional feel that would be placed on slices of Senner’s well known and loved Guernsey Gâche. These were then offered as a gift at a corporate event arranged by Black Vanilla.
“The Grind” is a fictional coffee company that was part of the 30 logos challenge. I undertook this project with the aim to take it from concept to completion in as short a time frame as possible, which I managed to do in under two hours. The brief was as follows;
“We're a small coffee shop chain located in Seattle, WA with five locations. Our current logo is just text using a default font but now it's time for an update!
The Grind prides itself on natural and local ingredients. For our new logo, we actually do not want to use any browns! So many coffee shops around here use brown and we'd like to stand out. Maybe oranges, green, other earth tones, etc. could work well.
This logo will primarily be used as our store sign, on menus, and on coffee cups and merchandise. The Grind logo could be text based or have an icon, we're open to either/both. We're open to using symbols that represent coffee such as the coffee bean, plant, grounds, coffee cup, etc.!”
The icon of a coffee grinder was used to stand out from the typical coffee cups that were used on the “inspiration” that was given in the brief also trying to steer away from the colour brown.
