Commissions & Logo Design

When it comes to design, particularly logos I believe clear and simple is best – this is no doubt related to my love of linocut as a medium. My illustrations are primarily inspired by the natural world and I have recently ventured into linocut prints and hand drawn illustrations for commercial commissions.

The following are examples of my work. Please get in touch if you would like to chat about any logo or commissions work.

 

Joel Endersby Logo design Joel Endersby Logo design – Joel visited my studio in the summer of 2021 and on his return home got in touch regarding the design of a logo for his business relaunch. He had a clear vision of what he was looking for, combining the idea of a barn conversion with a ploughed field and a swallow (as are so often seen nesting in the eaves of the heritage building he restores.) I was able to translate this vision into a linocut design for the main motif of his new branding.

 

Puffin News Logo design

Puffin Newsletter Logo design – Jaclyn was looking for a logo for the newly launched Rathlin Island Puffin newsletter. I worked up a couple of different designs and she was able to chose the one that worked best for the project.

 

 

 

Wildlife Trust Fundraising Artwork

Wildlife Trust Fundraising Launch – The Wildlife Trust were looking for a couple of designs to launch their new ‘Friends of’ scheme. I worked up two designs for them – one to celebrate their wetland landscape work on the islands, and one to illustrate the rich marine that the islands support.

 

   

Christmas Crackers

Xmas Crackers – I’ve worked with Maisie at the Island Makers to produce a motif for their crackers in 2020 and 2021.

 

 

 

Repalce imageSt Mary’s Gig Club T-shirts design – The gig club were looking for some designs for t-shirts and merchandise to celebrate the rich rowing heritage on the islands and in particular three of the oldest gigs. The Bonnet and the Slippen, both built in 1830 and painted green and blue respectively, and the Golden Eagle gig built in 1870 and painted yellow.

 

Salty Skin T-shirt Designs

 

 Salty Skin T-shirt Designs – Bryony and Nick at Salty Skin designs were looking for a simple sea swim linocut design that they could use to handprint t-shirts. In the end they went for the design without any text and hand-printed the t-shirts from the lino block in a number of different colour combinations.
