COMP-A-TENT

Comp-A-Tent believes that sustainability should be a given, not a compromise, so that we can stop taking resource today, from tomorrow. The current development is tackling the 1-in-5 tents abandoned at music festivals, around 720 metric tonnes a year. Consumer pressure points include packing, carrying, cleaning and storing tents; a reluctant post festival experience. To do this, they are developing a compostable tent, that can be added to existing composting infrastructure at musics festivals.   Comp-A-Tent is leveraging the power of Design Thinking to develop its strategic vision, product and marketting opportunities, lead by Molkie Design Founder, James Molkenthin.

PASE

Bryan originally approached me for branding of his PT business. Following the success of this, Bryan then required a logo for his latest personal training plan, ‘PASE’ with accompanying icon. Once again, I pulled on cues from the leading sports brands and programs to produce a strong, powerful logo, to match the strength and fitness his program develops.

Unilever required an installation to showcase all its wins against competitor products, since 2009, to be shown to the Unilever Leadership Team during their visit to the Leeds R&D site. Completed in two weeks, the project included the layout and design of the installation, communicating with and sending artwork to printers. I also had to develop the visual language of the product displays, capturing the type of win (wetness protection, fragrance etc) in single images. Following the success of this project, the Personal Care category as a whole requested that I help to create a Wall of Fame for all the product wins in Unilever Personal Care since 2009, again to be showcased to the Unilever Leadership Team. This was a temporary installment, where I play more of an advisory role, but still designed the overall aesthetics of the Wall of Fame.

Unilever R&D has a strong culture of bringing in and developing apprentices. This recruitment drive begins at grass roots level, with the current apprentices going into careers fairs to increase awareness of the scheme and the advantages it has over University or the world of work. As part of this, they approached me to create a range of A0 poster boards to grab the attention of the students at this events. The key was to generate a range of posters that showed the diversity of the placements, yet unified enough to sit together, plus aligned to brand guidelines.

Catholic Way Publishing was looking to update its book cover template – a design that sits over a cover image, but keeps the series all looking visually similar. The emphasis was on producing “an old style “serious and solemn” look” that could be adapted to work on 100+ books.

Andy Jupe approached me for brand creation as he had decided it was time to take his company to the next level, as part of a drive to get a higher calibre of clients. Talking with Andy, he envisaged his company, not as one of those RHS flower companies, but as an honest and local firm, who took on the big, heavy jobs that needed doing in the garden. The resulting logo, business cards and website show off Andy’s honesty, showcasing the seriousness of the business, but with the same welcoming tone as Andy himself.

I was approached by Home Touch to produce their latest brochure. The old brochure was tired and dated in terms of it’s layout and design and needed updating and stripping back to make the product story simple and clear to consumers. What was produced was a carefully crafted, balanced and considered asset for the company, that aligned to brand values and HomeTouch’s visual communication standards.

Having helped Marilyn develop her logo, business cards and office stationery, Marilyn was keen to work together in order to produce her sales brochure for Sweet Joseph. Starting from an initial conversation, we worked to develop the purpose and need for the brochure, pin pointing it to being a sales aide and leave behind. Keen to continue the business’s high end aesthetic, we opted for a clean and minimal style, highlighting her floral displays with detailed, high-res, full page images of displays. After several rounds of iterations, we reached perfection! At which point I prepped the files for printing.
