Movement Room Branding

I’ve done a fair few identities for yoga and fitness brands, the key really is flexibility (!) in coming up with new approaches. I had some real fun with creating a playful identity that portrayed energy and movement without resorting to the regular formats.

Project Completed

Movement Room is Fork's first Canadian client!

MAD-HR Toolkit Web Design / Wordpress Development

A design and dev project to re-create a subscriber-only platform chock-full of useful HR guidance for UK Businesses. The original proprietary system was looking old and tired. I’m working with Carole and Charlotte to port the content over to an easy-to-use WordPress environment that leverages MemberPress and Stripe to protect content and take recurring payments.

Project In Progress

MAD aren't mad. MAD stands for Make A Difference!

Rock Paper Scissors Branding

An energetic identity for a new arts-based CIC in Ipswich. Local artist and lecturer Lulu Horsfield created the Rock Paper Scissors project to get kids involved with art, creativity and collaboration. I worked with Lulu to create the logotype. The core of the brief was that it had to be easy to recreate in different media.

Project Completed

The cut-out low-fi illustrative style of Saul Bass was a major influence on the style of this logo.

Spirit Wren Branding

This was a great challenge! To create a logo for Jenny Wren’s new yoga business that encapsulated her surname! It also had to fit into the style of the Mandukya Yoga identity so co-branded messaging could be easily created.

Project Completed

I worked with Jen's husband, Wibbs to create his Mandukya Yoga brand.

Suffolk Shorts Web Design

A single-page holding site for The Suffolk Short Film Festival. First submissions for a limited programme, hosted by our partner First Light Festival, will open in Spring 2019. The first international festival will take place in Ipswich in October 2020 with a full programme and category awards.
