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.

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.

The Vintage Peddler Flyer

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.

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.


  • The logo for Bento was made as a digital only logo to be used in the credits and trailers for the project.
  • A good friend of mine has been busy building a tiny house that he’s also going to be renting out so that needed a logo, we’ve got a few versions of whats going on and we’re going to use it in a few different way but for right now this is the basic logo.

  • The logo for Priest Sheetmetal was designed to show the strength and presence of metal with the slab serif typography beside a sheet press icon.
  • Truffle dogs are such an important part of the operation at Kings and break up the landscape shots.
  • We found this place just in time, as soon as the construction was done we we’re never going to get in here but the construction really added something different to the background.
  • The season had only just finished and there was plenty of snow still in the mountains giving us the chance to use the ski field in a way that we normally would just cruise on by and some of the best images are really just under your nose the whole time. This image was published in Manual Magazine.
  • While shooting the Whistler nightlife scene you meet a different set of people than you do during the daylight hours.
  • After moving into a half house, half garage with one of my earliest friends in infancy of the Q.C.R. gave me the opportunity to evolve my photography along with the style of the pseudo gang.
  • Working with skiers and snowboarders on the same project has positives and negatives, the positive being it can give a different set of outlooks on the same mountain. Charlie Lyons and Will Jackways take time to mind surf the scenery while filming for Big Risk Big Rewards.
  • Full throttle slow pace hill climb.
  • When your shooting with Josh O theres always one more lap, one more trick, one more frame and this allows the juxtaposition of different tricks and tweaks.

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.

New Priest Business Card Design

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.
