Welcome to Riley Bathurst Design this is my freelance design, photography and video space.
 
I've been working with clients from large to small, creating logos to TV shows. I'm always up for a challenge and available to create something for you, your company or your project. I ended up here through design school, working for photographers and a desire to create as projects have come up or I have been looking at new things I have adapted my work continually through medium and style, something I wish to keep doing to keep creating the best pieces I can.
 
Enjoy your visit to my site.

Graphic Design

This is where my portfolio starts and the base of my work. Since studying I have explored a number of other areas but I always come back to the base rules, styles and inspiration of layouts, colours and other fundamentals of graphic design.

Print

These are print works of sort, some of which have been printed, some have been used entirely online, most are static but all of them are different.

I created this poster based on the style of the reigning champion, a propaganda style military while infusing my own and sourced stock photography.

Auckland Wakeboard Open 2012

With a lack of imagery for a new event and being away from Auckland when I was creating the design I searched my hard drives for an icon image of the city and found something very simple.

Learning to design for the web has been one of the more challenging experiences I have had as a design, incorporating the artistic side of the creation with the structure of code, a rapidly and ever changing space that is viewed differently from person to person gives more than my share of headaches but I feel it has lead me to design websites far better with an understanding of how they work.

Canterbury Homekill

I have been working with Canterbury Homekill for a few years, developing and adapting to the changing landscape of web design. The site has been developed as a custom butchery service giving many options on each of the four animals they specialize in.

Logo

In a strive for simplicity and uniqueness I try to create pieces that work at all sizes and in any version of colour.

My photography started with my action sport, at the same time I was discovering design I was also moving into these dynamic sports more about creating a moment than getting points on the board. That and the fact I always have something in my hands and a camera works really well for that.

As cameras changed and gave rise to DSLR video I took the opportunity to shoot moving images. Now video influences my photography just as much as photography influences my video allowing me to make the most of a situation either in a single image or a whole film.

Calendar Blackout Dates

I’ve been working on a friends site over at JKBinstalls.co.nz It’s nothing too crazy but has a form or a couple forms that can help them with setting up appointments, the general put your name, email and a few details about what your looking for. The interesting bit came through with adding a calendar so you can pick what day you want the guys to come around. General jQuery datepicker showing inline which is all well and good except we needed the ability to block out the dates they can’t get around as they are already booked out. This doesn’t seem to be something that is done very often in the way I’m looking for, possibly because it’s in wordpress or php or html or mysql or maybe I just don’t know the right tools for doing this, or I’m just searching the wrong key words. I’m running a backend page that looks pretty much the same as the front end but behind a login and only has the datepicker, this drops the date in a mysql database but bringing that array back into the front end page to block off the dates took a minute to figure out. The database comes back in as an array and needs to be converted a single variable which can then be thrown into the script tag, this is the front end form.

get_col( "SELECT dates FROM jkb_blackout;" ); $string = ''; foreach ($array as $key => $value) { $string .= ",$value"; } ?>
 

Then the code for the functions.php file
// deals with variable set through form _POST // Blackout function prefix_admin_black() { // deal with the upload if ( ! function_exists( ‘wp_handle_upload’ ) ) { require_once( ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/file.php’ ); } // Extremley Important to set global $wpdb; // Whats inserted $wpdb->insert( jkb_blackout , array( ‘dates’ => $_POST[‘dates’] ) ); // this give the unid in the next url $id = $wpdb->insert_id; // fail safe if above zero was inserted to database if ($id>0) { // Redirect wp_redirect( home_url() . ‘/black’ ); } else { // Redirect wp_redirect( home_url() . ‘/sorry’ ); } exit(); } add_action( ‘admin_post_black’, ‘prefix_admin_black’ ); add_action( ‘admin_post_nopriv_black’, ‘prefix_admin_black’ ); I’m missing stuff on the fail states, errors security and things like that but for right now it’s working and you can check out some dates that have been blacked out on http://www.jkbinstalls.co.nz/rangehood/
