Print flyer design for a new Blues night at the Ritzy in Brixton. It takes it’s inspiration for Juke Joints and Blues dance in the United States mimicking letter pressed playbills.
When I am not designing, I am dancing. So I was very excited when Trisha Sewell approached me to work on the branding and website for Savoy Hop, a new Lindy Hop & Vernacular Jazz Club in Hertfordshire.
The logotype draws inspiration from the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem in the 1930s and makes use of the amazing Brandon Grotesque typeface by Hannes von Döhren.
The Church at Clarendon recently re-opened their Church building in Arlington, Virginia after a very long period of renovation. I was delighted when they approached me to design the service leaflet for the opening of the building. They were looking for something clean, simple and fresh. The design uses a simple passage from the bible to illustrate the shape of the building.
Last November I was fortunate enough to visit Australia for the second time and spent a week driving the coastal road between Melbourne and Sydney. I could write a whole book about that adventure but for the purposes of this blog I wanted to look at one stop in particular.
Branding for an all-girl vintage dance weekend.
Client: Girl Jam London / Location: London / Date: 2012
Girl Jam is an organisation running all-girl solo vintage dance events in London. The brand needed a hint of vintage and a hint of the feminine while being fun and inclusive. The logo draws inspiration from vintage jam labels, an obvious play on the name. It uses a the Home Run typeface by Donal Young. Inspired by American baseball it’s an assertive yet friendly and decidedly retro typeface.
