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.
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.
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.
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.
For the second year I worked on the VP flyer we simplified back to a stylized image I had taken to tell the story on the front and a minimal map on the back. I’m a large fan of simple maps as a way of communication to tourists to allow them to discover a new place’s personality without getting lost or the information approach of GPS.
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.
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.
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.
This is something more modern for a pretty traditional company, the last round of cards had the cell phone too big and central which resulted in a lot of calls and texts which at least means print still works.
