I had a strange dream a while back where trees were covered in grenades instead of fruit - maybe I had been eating cheese that night?! Anyway, this graphic represents that dream. I guess you could say that it also represents life in many ways... things are not always what they seem. All graphics drawn in Illustrator using the font Zapfino.

I created these design options in Illustrator to advertise a murder mystery weekend. The wavy lines that merge with the blood represent sound waves - as the delegates were sound engineers. The other design is a more generic crime scene. The typefaces are Vademecum and Impact.

After seeing the latest Big Brother icon for series 12, I thought I would have a go at creating an eye icon for myself. The new one is a complex 3D logo but I thought I would stick to something simple. This graphic was created in Illustrator using the multiply feature for the colours. I also created a repeat pattern from the same graphic to add a bit of interest.

This design was created for an email campaign to advertise a product launch that was taking place in a local cinema. The graphics were created in Illustrator and the simple animation was produced in Photoshop with only 2 frames, and exported as a GIF file. Don't forget your popcorn!

After a recent visit to the Circus I felt really inspired to create some carnival style graphics.
After some initial sketches, I used Illustrator to create the big top - drawing one half and then using a mirror image to create the other side. The type and graphics are based on the fonts Mesquite and Rosewood with some custom adaption. I used a flag warp on the scroll to create movement. The colour palette, red and yellow was the only obvious choice. Hope you enjoy it!
