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.
As I continue with the annual invites for Rolleston Square I have gone more contemporary this year while still trying to hold within the style and the constrains of the brand. Bringing the elements together around the square and the shopping bag from the logo.
I created this poster based on the style of the reigning champion, a propaganda style military while infusing my own and sourced stock photography.
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.
I had the absolute pleasure of being invited along for a couple of shoots with Matchstick Productions on their newly released project, Drop Everything. In a weird turn of events I was actually in the trailer as linked below 1:36 I’m sliding the camera along for a ridiculous little setup, the shot cuts in the middle and the camera isn’t even turned on for one of the shots but none of the shots I filmed made it to that cut. Last night I joined a massive cast to at Squaw to see the Squaw segment which blends history and an amazing progression of skiing, which I’m honored to say I had a couple of shots in, as well as one in Marcus Eder’s section.
A huge thanks to Scott, Connery and Marcus for the opportunity, to everyone else involved well done and anyone who hasn’t seen it yet get the film online here.
