Wow it’s been a long time since I updated this but I’ve been so busy. So here’s a couple of images of some recent portfolio additions.
And I’ve just picked up the keys to my new office, photos to come later!

Posted on my portfolio some pics up of the work I’ve done for Wired and Wired Italy. Taken in RAW with a 500D, allows to play with the white balance and exposure post shooting. Also tweaked up the saturation a bit which you can get away with with infographics, although the Italian designs used lovely spot vibrant colours so little tweaking was needed.

Just a little look at what I’m currently up to and why I haven’t been updating much.

On a kind of an infographics theme, I saw this today which made me laugh. I think it could be classed as infographics as it does try to explain parts of the plane to an outsider, and its humourous to boot. Unfortunately they’ve only painted one plane this way, which they’ve named “Flying 101″.
Found from here.

I love the BBC – in fact I’d go as far as saying it’s one of the increasingly fewer things we can be proud about in this country. I have no problem at all paying the license fee for the extreme wealth of content they provide. The iPlayer service is brilliant in it’s simplicity. No extra charges, you can stream straight off the page, you don’t have to sign up or download a DRM laden player. It seems to be extremely popular too, based on the statistics they’ve released.

This was done for a little zine project that Jack Richardson is working on. The rules were it had to be on the themes of British, 50+(age) and three. Other limits were black and white only and had to fit on A5.
As I had already done the Vulcan stuff I’ve posted earlier, I immediatly knew I wanted to do the V Bombers. I started work on a kind of mash-up infographics poster but I got bogged down with it and felt really limited by the lack of colour. So in the end I played to my strengths and did a layout composition. Once I got going it was a lot of fun to make, although I spent most of my weekend on it – it definately was a change from making websites for clients.
I tried to recreate the style of some of those military adverts from the 50s, and if there’s one part I particularly like, it’s the mix of spaced out caps, then tighter italics underneith under the weapons.
