Brandtastic are Hiring!

It’s been a cracking start to the year here at Tastic Towers and as a result some more creative peeps are required!

Fulltime & Freelance positions available!

We are looking for experienced creative freelancers that can come in and work at the studio in Fleet, Hampshire – you’ll need to be equally happy laying out a magazine, creating a brand or designing a website (don’t worry about the build we have an elite Geek Squad for that).

At the same time it would be great to take on a Junior designer full time, a great chance to learn the ropes at a busy growing company – get in at ground level and climb the ladder with us! You don’t have to have tons of experience, none in fact, college or uni leavers should both apply – we just need a good knowledge of Adobe Creative suite (Indesign, Illustrator & Photoshop), a portfolio of great work and a massive passion for design and a desire to keep improving… Talent, Passion and Personaility are what we are after!

Oset Trials Illustration

Oset make electric trials bikes for children from 2 to 10 years old. They are the market leader in this field – in fact i think they invented the market! Brandtastic recently helped them out with illustration and graphic design for promotional clothing and exhibition stand graphics.

I created this illustration that could be used across their marketing material, especially promotional clothing and an exhibition stand for the upcoming Dirt Bike Show – the biggest UK event for all off road motorcycling.

The base for the illustration was actually a photo of the owner’s son riding one of the bikes – He is very pleased to have been immortalised on cool Hoodies!


Lend us a Ziggy: Brixton Currency

Love, love this… Independent shops in Brixton have got together to create their own currency to increase productivity in the district. Are these the coolest bank notes ever or what? Full article over at Creative Review.

“The Brixton pound, which launched as the UK’s first urban local currency in 2009, has been redesigned featuring images of four notable cultural figures from the area…

The currency (known as the B£) is designed to help support local businesses and encourage trade in the area. It is used largely by independent shops in the SW2 and SW9 postcodes in south London.”
