You will have to excuse me for my abject laziness in not updating my blog. I've got a job now you see and I work ALL the time.
Still, I've found time to do some extra-curricular work too. Mainly posters and such.
whatever, check 'em out. enjoy :)

What we have here is the special edition album for Drake and the Sea Dogs album. Its all pre-production concept work really, but the idea is that the special edition of the album will come on a small 64mb usb stick (or 128 if necessary) attached to string on a treasure map and in a bottle.
The beauty of this concept is that it becomes an obvious valued collectible, but remains (relatively) cheap for the band to manufacture. The bottles will all be recycled beer bottles, the artwork is all one colour and so would be screen printed onto tea stained paper. On top of this, a batch of low memory flash sticks would be the main cost, as well as, of course time and effort.
The concept makes for a beautiful DIY finished piece which would then sell for a LOT more than the cost of production. The idea of recycled paper could also be dabbled with, as well as possibly old unwanted usb sticks. It is as DIY as the band wishes to take it.
Of course there would also be a standard cd edition. But I wanted to create a new and exciting way of packaging a bands album and I think I have achieved this whilst also playing to the bands style or pirate sea shanties.

I have a rather long standing obsession with pirates and have recently been working on an album of pirate songs. Made this little video for one of them. Enjoy!

possible business card.
blunt, to the point. gonna try some different variations of the front image, but i'm pretty happy with the back... although should probably get my website address on there, maybe get rid of the phone number and just have a web address.

Long time, No blog.
I've been busy with Total Jerk stuff, stressing like you wouldn't believe that my designs won't be ready.
Anywho, here are some bits I've been working on recently for better or for worse.
p.s. I realise this is sort of a dump of work with no real direction, but I haven't really had time for co-ordinating blog posts.
Will also get round to putting some new bits on my website soon.
Will also get round to designing the two tattoo designs I have to design, as well as some album cover, more t-shirt designs, a full 32 page childrens book and probably some other bits I've forgotten about too. WOW.

So over the last many many hours, me and Oli Read have been building the Total Jerk website.
Total Jerk is the design collective/ t-shirt brand that me, Oli Read, Elliott Langford, Rich Walton and Rob Juggins created and run.
Go check out our website (I totally coded and co-designed that little doozy)
I'll post about this again when the shops properly running
