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.
Charlotte Percle made a really cool film this year, it’s about some first year Freeride World Tour skiers, including a mutual friend of our Sam Lee, so when she asked me to help with a poster for the film I happily grab a few of the photos she had and got into photoshop.
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.
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.
In a really nice turn of events it kinda made sense to pick up the iPhone X, I grabbed it the day I jumped on the road but it was a blur of using a real camera most of the time, I got home and got to put the camera to the test with a few friends for a Snowledge video around the local resort.
