Cinema book cover.

Returning to my old circle idea. I think it works better here, and I really like this!


A new (Well, not actually at all new, had it for ages but only just getting started) brief! We're to produce a book jacket design for a book that's actually going to be pubished! The book is all about cinema history in Brighton and Hove. Now, I know these images don't relate especially to Brighton and Hove at all, but I LOVE them and am probably going to use them anyway. Images are from the amazing Dusashenka on Flickr, edited and cropped by me.

More box man things.

Here are a couple more book jacket designs, based more inside the box, although possibly this isn't clear enough. Still working progress.

Secondly, here's a website design I've done. Fairly simple, possibly too simple, but I think it serves it's purpose pretty well.

More box book covers.

My tutor thought the book covers should perhaps focus on the inside of the box. Nooo, I really liked the other ones! Oh well, here's attempts, but I'm not happy with them.
I like the idea but I just can't make the text work!

The Box Man

I'm designing a new book jacket for 'The Box Man' by Kobo Abe... We're also making a short film based on the book. I quite like these, but I'm enjoying experimenting, so I might go in a different direction from here.

More concrete texture.

I liked the car park even if the lift was full of pee.

Saving the planet!

I need an illustrator to make this good.
Although to be honest the type sort of sucks as well, I'm not having a good creativity time. :(

This is going to take some practice.

World saving machines.

These are some ideas, crudely collaged together with stock photos, which I will later draw, with added detail and goodness.
This is a car, but you can cycle it! All the comfort of a normal car, all the environmental benefits of cycling! Yay!
This is a personal electricity generator: solar and wind power combine in the energy generation backpack, and then electricity is pumped out to power whatever device you might require. (Outdoor use only)

Another way of nurturing new tree growth to cancel out your carbon footprint.

More detail will be added into the rucksack, but basically, you throw your rubbish into the top of the rucksack (There will be some sort of chute) inside the rucksack it's processed and recycled, and then out into the basket at the back, there will appear some useful recycled products. At the end of the day you'll have a whole load of cool new stuff, based on all the litter you've put in over the course of your day!

I'm starting to wish I still had an illustrator working with me on this stuff!

A change of direction.

I now seem to be involved with another project. I still want to carry on with my machinery idea, but I've been led astray by Daniel and 'The Box Man' by Kobo Abe. Will be a short film. This is initial box construction stages. Wait and see.

The super mega awesome 'Lets save the world' machine!

A new project. Some illustrations I've done in preparation.

Letterpress book...

Head over to Millie's blog HERE and you can have a look at our beautiful graphic design letterpress book which all the Graphic Designers in my year played a part in. I'm pleased to see my page is showing, it's the 'As near to heaven by sea as by land' one... unfortunately most of mine came out slightly wonky, so I'm glad this one is pretty ok :)
Enjoy I hope!

Not sure about the mood of these. I like how the look, but I was hoping for something a bit more 'fun', y'know...? Might suit one of the other statements better.
