The brief for this book cover commission was something elegant, understated and with minimal colour. The book is a side-by-side comparison of the four Gospel stories, so I wanted to capture that idea in a simple graphic way using contrasting colours and the suggestion of a cross. In effect, the cover shows four distinct blocks, each pointing to the cross.
I designed this little number as a collaboration between Blue Peter and new kids’ sport show Kickabout+. It’s an A2 poster as standard, but the four A4 sheets can also be positioned in a vertical or horizontal line, or assembled into a booklet.
Here’s one of a set of posters I designed for a church gathering in Middlewich, Cheshire called ‘Church@28’. The event aims to be informal, relevant and attractive, which I sought to reflect in the branding with colour, geometry and a modern rounded typeface. (It’s Quicksand, if you’re interested – one of my personal favourites.)

This has been a nice little side project over the last couple of weeks; a simple but colourful poster for CBBC fans to print out and follow the action at Brazil 2014. It was great fun to put together, and it’s lovely to know that kids all over the country (and probably some grown-ups) will be able to enjoy it.
The players at the bottom of the poster came from BBC Sport’s World Cup marketing trail. With no budget for images of real players, these were great to have. That was the main challenge I faced on this; trying to make it look amazing without a lot of time or money available.
I’m a big fan of MOO Print’s ‘MiniCards‘ — they’re half the size, half the price, and double the cuteness of normal business cards. Get in touch if you’re interested in some of your own.
