welcome to my portfolio.
below you will find examples of my work as a graphic designer and photographer. you can view the site using the page’s scroll bar, or use the table of contents to jump to a specific point within the portfolio.
as well as design and photography, I also have experience in: photographic laboratory work, print making, music, sound engineering and production, film making and editing, the design and construction of musical instruments, and teaching.
thanks for stopping by,
logo designed for the online shop - oddpockets.
this is the full alphabet drawn out from the initial characters of the odd pockets logo. this alphabet is part of the company's branding.
the typeface is based on herb lubalin’s avant garde gothic. the characters ‘o’ ‘c’ and ‘s’ are taken, unchanged, from avant garde gothic - ultra light - uppercase. everything else is original.
i have also built a blog, which mimics the layout of the site. the blog retains the navigation bar from the website, enabling the user to jump out of the blog and into to any part of the website at their whim.
these are badges i have designed for sale on the odd pockets shop.
i also created these vector based 3d illustrations of my designs. The illustrations are for use on the website, and in promotional materials.
the ‘too school for cool’ logo has been, by far, odd pockets' most popular badge design. currently, i am involved in the construction of a new record label, which plans to appropriate the logo.
odd pockets business cards.
this thank you card is packaged with each item sold through the odd pockets shop.
backlash magazine logo.
i designed these two logos for my current employer. the first was adopted as the company logo, and used until they changed their name at the end of 2009.
this was the design for a split 7inch vinyl pennines were releasing with the band ‘this town needs guns’ on ‘big scary monster records’. the split was only released over itunes. both the photographs in the artwork are mine.

pennines / fago.sepia tour poster.
i was asked by a music promoter to design a poster for a gig that pennines were playing. here are the flyers for the same show. they were double sided so that the handles of each umbrella continue onto the reverse of the flyer.
this is the flash website i built for the band saleontomorrow.
this is the sleeve to a split cd i designed with illustrator helen entwisle.
helen and i screen printed over 500 sleeves by hand. We then scored, cut and glued them together.
the cd was sold with a hand stitched cotton cover.
this is part of a promotional shoot for the band ‘blakfish’.
these four shots ended up being printed in the centre of their album artwork.
this is catwalk and photographic fashion model, robert tremain. i have taken a number of photographs for his portfolio.
this is a composite of 4 photographs stitched together in photoshop.
i used the layers of the composite to create an interactive flash rollover.
i love the way in this picture his neck slides evenly between the 2 tube-lights in the background.
this photograph was taken against the brutalist walls of denys lasdun’s south bank centre. the cool blue of the concrete provides a complementary contrast to the skin tone, and helps to calm what could potentially be an aggressive image of a muscular man with no shirt on.
this is an uppercase alphabet i created.
i am planning to exhibit a selection of my design, photographic and musical work under the name ‘brutalist’.
(brutalist architecture is a style of concrete architecture predominantly associated with modernism and the international style.)
this site is currently acting as an animated holding page for what i am building into a full site.
as well as exampling my work, the site will allow visitors to purchase: prints, posters, music and merchandise.
i designed and printed this poster for my dad’s birthday.
this diagram is designed to show the relationship between the printed colour mode (cmy) and that of light (rgb).
i produced a number of these posters as a gift for the band ‘colour’ when they disbanded in september 2009.
i designed this for an exhibition of screen printed posters.
this is a poster that i created as a gift for my girlfriend.
this poster was an exercise in composition, but might be used on the brutalist website.
this chap had fallen asleep on the train to cambridge. the shot is a particular favourite of mine.
