DON’T STAY IN
La La Land Promo Video
I created this dark and moody promotional video for La La Land, a new club night in Manchester. The client wanted it be short and sweet but pack a visual punch. I achieved this by using a combination of live action footage and motion design elements including an animated logo and kinetic type.
Joel Corry Tour with Club 18-30
Working with Big Blue Whale, my video production company my involvement in this project was as video editor. My colleagues traveled down to London to film the opening night of the tour. The footage was then transferred to me via DropBox. I created the edit over a couple of days.
AXIS OF WOBBLE
Flyers For Live Music Events
I have created a range of posters and flyers for music events hosted by China Shop Bull, a Ska, Rave, Rock and Rap band. For these flyers I used online tutorials as a start point using them as a chance to learn some new skills. My aim was to then add my own unique twist to the designs. Taking what has come before and making something new allowed me to learn more by breaking down other designers techniques.
I am very interested in typography, in particular text layout. I love creating designs that elevate text to something more than just letters.
KAOS SOUND SYSTEM
Logo Design for Leeds Sound System & Music Events Organiser
I helped develop the Kaos Sound System brand by designing a bold and punchy logo. The design combines the letters KSS in an interesting and unique way that is pleasing to the eye. I also designed flyers, posters and stickers that helped the Kaos brand stand out from the crowd within the eclectic Leeds music scene. My designs were also used for custom clothes including T-shirts, caps and hoodies.
Kaos Soundsystem has it’s root in the free party scene in and around Leeds, West Yorkshire. A scene that embraces soundsystem culture.
For inspiration to help me design eye catching flyers and posters I learned more about sound system culture. I raved at the parties, watched documentaries about the history, collected flyers and spent time online researching competitors, soaking up images and browsing art.
Unity Day Fund Raisers
The Kaos Kru also put on fundraising parties for Leeds Unity Day. This is Hyde Parks free one day festival that brings the community together with music, sports, stalls and family activities. For these events I used a distressed SciFi look with careful attention to the text and layout for a bold look. Also proceeds went to funding the Unity Day Event and I contributed my fee to the cause.
