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.
I created a little piece out of nervous excitement in the days between booking my flights and heading off to film Will J in Japan there were some other versions of this with logos and text and other pieces but this was always my favorite version.
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.
I was asked to put together a new piece for the rumblers right around the time Mad Max Fury Road was released and this couldn’t not have an impact on the gang as well as what I would do with the design so I grabbed a few old shots I had and clicked around a bit in photoshop.
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.
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.
