BP moving into Photoshopping?

July 21, 2010

So it turns out that BP are doctoring their PR images? So what – who doesn’t? Do people really think that the girls and guys on the covers of every magazine wake up looking like what appears in print? The only anti-ageing cream worth investing in is the Adobe brand (it comes in a blue a blue box).

Lets not get worked up over this – but I predict a new meme coming – or at least a new photoshop phriday post

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!

Old Work, Newly Discovered

February 24, 2010

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.

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…)
