99 Hanover Street Cocktail Menu

June 1, 2010

The 99 Hanover Street menus have been out for a wee while now, but the Fringe Programme has been gobbling up all my time – Anyway, better late than never here’s a few pictures of it in situ along with the labels for the food menu that never was… More after the break

Johnnie Walker Gobo

March 28, 2010

Thought of this ages ago during the Johnnie Walker bottling plant closure. Anyway here it is in all its striding glory. I had to adjust a few parts of the logo to get them sitting on green … but it still looks like a Johnnie Walker logo* …

With 40,000** gobos Diageo would have a nationwide guerilla ad campaign promoting walking home after drinking instead of driving. And that’s how I’ll sell it to them!

RTD of the Future

February 1, 2010

**Updated artwork** This was going to go on a cocktail menu – but red bull weren’t fussed with having their logo messed around with on the thing. All they care about is having a cocktail called Vodka & Red Bull listed…

Today I invented a new drink. In comes in one size only – beer can size – and contains two cans of Red Bull and 4 shots of Jager. I’m going to call it JagerRedBullmeister/Bullmeister/Jagerbull/BagerReister. It should retail at about £12 a can. (more…)

Lamps – Ambient Lamps

January 16, 2010

In 2007 and 8 we were very lucky in the publications dept at the EFF in regard to the number of exhibitions listed with us. We seemed to always have a multiples of 14 (ie 14 listings per page). In 2009 we came a cropper. One short of a perfect spread). Jenny Peebles and I had the foresight to create our own listing, a fake show… Taboo in the office but I have very little time for sacrosanct tradition.

Our listing was so good (or weird) that it made it onto The Telegraph.co.uk‘s top show to see at the fringe.

Get Some Nuts

January 16, 2010

I knew the brother of the creative who put Snickers into the nut cracking fists of Mr T last year. Keen to get a job with him I knocked this up one morning before breakfast cigarettes and coffee. I was really really pleased with it because it reinforced BA’s unwillingness to get on planes and for the world to grow some nuts.

T-shirt design (Really Funny in Theatre Circles Summer 2008)

January 16, 2010

Poor old Jon Morgan – He was a hate figure for an entire summer in Edinburgh and among theatre types everywhere.

Asked if I’d like to design a t-shirt for the Fringe Shop I came up with this.

Social Media Logos for Print

January 16, 2010

To use up part of our advertising retro deal with The Scotsman last summer I created a half page ad that gave people the wherewithal to follow the EFF online.

I found that all social media icons were pithy little 20kb gifs – useless for printing so I set about making my own and in places improving them.

PDF file that you should be able to drop into Illustrator and rip apart for vectors after the jump

99 Hanover Street

January 16, 2010

My work for 99 Hanover Street went down pretty well. I started out making posters for their DJ listings and moved on to do stationery and menus and all sorts – The now infamous milk carton menu won an award at the Theme Awards (bar & restaurant interior design magazine) and was stolen from the premises by punters so much so that they had to resort back to boring gate fold menus. The menu turned up on the mantle pieces of quite a few people’s home I went to.

The Blue Dove

January 16, 2010

The Blue Dove was the possibly the most fun I’ve ever had at work. Its aim was to make communication between the three Blue Steel Ltd bars in Edinburgh (Villager, Dragonfly and Voodoo) a little easier and to let everyone know who was shagging who and who fell asleep where. (more…)
