Recent Projects

MAD-HR Toolkit

A design and dev project to re-create a subscriber-only platform choc-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

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

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

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.

Project Completed

The featured trailer on the site was shot in Ipswich's unique Spiral car park, which descends 600 feet underground.

We Are Vision

Designing and building a portal for luxury fashion brands such as Nike, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Oakley and many more to be able to order exhibition materials and point-of-sale displays across the globe.

Project In Progress

The core of the build is using Shopify, but some custom features will allow for single products to have multiple custom options for each brand.

Slate Cheese & Provisions

A new Shopify website for Slate, who are based in Aldeburgh and Southwold. The site will offer a range of cheeses and provisions and give visitors the option to join their Cheese Club – a monthly subscription service that delivers cheese to your door.

Project Completed

Every team member knows their stuff, so the site features tips and thoughts from them on every product page.

Emma Dodd School of Performing Arts

Working together with EightyOne to improve brand presence and help Emma and her team to improve CRM and membership tracking using a range of technologies.

Project In Progress

The brand identity is based around what Emma's school offers. Tutoring in singing, dancing and acting. The triple threat. #moreismore

Tech East

Working alongside the Tech East stakeholders to produce a series of page designs — along with assets and style guides — to Free Rein who handled the build aspect of the project. Launch planned for September 2018.

Project Completed

Following very positive board feedback, the new site design forms the basis of the new design style for all printed marketing material.
