Computer Arts Projects: Future Proof design feature.

December 23, 2008

Design and Art Direction for a feature on Future Proof Design. The basic jist of the feature is it’s talking about how in the future you need to be able to master more than one discipline. So you need to be able to design for print, for web, for motion. Cooked up this brilliant Dr Frankenstein esque multi disciplinary monster with the brilliant and regular Projects contributor Mark Verhaagen. Check his magic out yourself at  http://markverhaagen.com/

Cheese Farm Customs Logo

December 14, 2008

Another day of cold and another bit of logo design. This time for another mate back in Newcastle who’s setting up a custom car garage.

Didn’t have loads of time to spend on this and there’s still loads i could do with it, but i quite like the cheekyness and simplicity of it at the mo. What else could you do when your presented with this amazing name but go cheese and mouse tastic on it’s ass!

Quite a self explanitory logo and only a pitched idea at the mo.
