Skoda Rally Illustrations

Most of my recent posts seem to have been of other’s work or my branding and web design, well i do have a couple of other strings to my bow!

Something i really enjoy is illustration, here is some i have done for the Skoda Rally team over the last 2 years – these go on T-shirts sold at world Rally events – meeeeeoooow!

Fleet Carnival: First design work hits the streets

As you may or not know Brandtastic are the ‘creative partner‘ of the all new, relaunched, whizz bang, singing and dancing (is that enough now?) Fleet & District Carnival (You may have seen an earlier post launching the brand we created.)

So with a website now firmly in production it’s time to send the first piece of collateral out into the big wide world. Leaving home today is this advert for the Carnival Princess Disco! Bright, bold, fun and simple… Go get em’ tiger

Fac 251: Very nice graphic design

Fac 251, the newly reopened Hacienda, are putting a lot of effort into, and succeeding (IMHO), coming out with some lovely GRAPHIC design on their flyers recently. A lot of it is inspired by the original design work of Peter Saville who was responsible for the amazing and iconic design work that went along with the first ‘Hac’.

As a side note i recently read a brilliant book by Peter Hook, “The Hacienda- How not to run a club” it’s very funny and well written with lots of stories and tales of what went on behind the scenes during the iconic club’s short life.

Vision Yacht Sales, brand and advertising

Another brandtastic creation has been released into the big wide world today! – ‘Vision Yacht Sales’ came to us with a requirement for branding, stationery and advertising for their new company.

As you may expect they sell yachts! However unlike other firms of this type they are truly national and can offer a live viewing onboard any of their listings, no matter where you are, via their unique, online ‘liveview’ system. So if you’re in Cornwall you can view a yacht in Scotland within 5 minutes of finding it online!

Given the affluent target audience,  a fairly sophisticated and high-end feel was required which is reflected in the restrained, mono logo and clean typography and quality, non ‘salesy’ photography in the advertising.

Vision are actually based in Scotland and all my dealings with them have been via email, phone and Skype – a great example of how technology can allow us to work with clients anywhere in the world!
