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



Old Work, Newly Discovered

A wee animated gif for the Scotsman website. As part of the contra deal between the Fringe and the newspaper I had to design them adverts!? I’m quite fond of it considering I had twenty minutes to come up with something.

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…

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…)

I love this guy’s sense of humour. The songs are brilliantly dark and I’m waiting for him to pop up on channel 4 with a half hour thursday night slot, produced by Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris
