Jewellers Logo

Recently I was asked by a local Jeweler to create a logo for her to be used for Business cards, websites etc. 
The brief for this client was: To include "Inspired by Nature", as a lot of her work is inspired by nature and the animals in this world, especially Butterflies, which the client asked if I could sketch out a couple of designs to be used with her logo. Along with the butterflies I was asked to use a posh-ish text and have the text either in pink/purple or black/silver. 

After creating several copies of the design the client was happy to settle on this design. I enjoyed partaking in this, as it was something different to what I normally do, and something to add to my new found skills in typography.

To contact the jeweler her facebook link is below, and on her page is a link to her work on a separate facebook page.

Horde Of Hamsters

For my Final Major Project I took on  the task of two projects to complete. The being the Monster book which needed the most time to be completed and printed seeing as more was going into it then the second project.

The second project was to continue on with the character development of a series of hamsters that I had entitled "A Horde Of Hamsters". This was a play on the animal collective noun for hamsters.  With the intial feedback from the first time attempt at these creatures the main negative comment I received was the fact that the hamsters themselves looked the same and could do with being more visually characteristic instead of using props or items.  I also based the hamsters heavily ont he dwarves from the hit movie "The Hobbit". These Dwarves were a massive influence since each dwarf has a visual characteristic that defines each character: e.g. Bombur was portrayed fat - this deducts that he is a fond lover of food and is the camps cook, Dwalin was depicted as being bold, with many scars and heavily equiped this concluded that dwalin was the natural born fighter of the group and the hard man of the fellowship.
