Competition piece for the Penguin Book Project - To create a front cover for a book... "The Complete Aesop Fables"


Final Major Product - B (rebrand project)

3rd Year Final Major Project (B) - was to rebrand a design company called designs4u. This included a full logo redesign, foil pressed business cards, a website, information booklet and other rebranding materials shown above.


The Body Shop

3rd Year Graphics Design Final Piece for "The Body Shop", to re-design packaging that sticks to their values as a company.

I designed a series of boxes, pots, and all graphics used on each - making a consistant theme throughout to help showing the brands values are important to the company, also to create something to look aesthetically pleasing, with the limitations of production cost (i.e. certain designs and materials were used in this project to keep costs down and provide a clean eco effect)


Fedrigoni Calander 2011

For a design brief in third year, I created a 3D Tree which is built from a template. This is a desk tree which can be used in the office at home, and when light hits the tree the fedrigoni logo appears on the surface behind (due to the laser cut logo) this helps promote during the summer months aswell as being a pratical calandar to use. A brief set by The Design Project in Leeds - will now be publitised in the near future.

Conceptual Diary

Woop, another post - i'm on a roll, righto heres just a few pieces of work i've worked on past and present, mucking about with photoshop and a bit of photography...

Booyeah! This stuff is good fun, mucking about in photshop with snazzy layouts, collecting afew artists and using some photographs from back from down south (London!~). So yeah this is bascially afew pages from a diary showing artists work I like, aswell as a bit of architecture... fun times!

This next bit is a bit of my A Level coursework, over the years i've kinda been more influenced by artists and the hole 'urban' thing on the go these days, we had to do a small lil project on London Zoo bascially a few poster designs, so after a few months and awesome visits to london zoo (even back then when I was 18/19 that place is awesome, screw getting drunk and falling down stairs... zoo's the place to go) - Anyway! this is just a small snippit of one of my finals I produced.

So, what is Designs4u ?

Designs4u was just a little thing being a bit of a keeno teenager I wanted to get into web design, layout graphics etc etc... so just learning web design and layout design I learnt a bit of HTML/PHP and rustled up a site, just so it's easier to give someone the web address then printing off a load pages for a c.v. :o( - but yeah bascially its just a collection of work i've done in the past and something I really wana continue while i'm at university~!

Blogs up! Booyeah

Right this is a bit weird, i'm into the webdesign jazz, but never really got into or wanted to ;) 'blogging', purely because i cant be bothered to read or type out long paragraphs about myself! :o), so this is gna be a first... I'll link this blog with my, which started in 2004/05 as a small little web design and graphics company, after afew little jobs here and there I decided to make it just my own portfolio, which unfortunately I haven't really updated in awhile, now with this blogging business I think i'll have to :)..

So bascially on here ill just show a few of my works over the years, and talk about the world of design from my view, and how my university course in graphics design is going,

.... So there it is a small little introduction and my first post, lets hope I keep it up~

Peace JFR.
