06 May 2011 No CommentsWell, I sort of ran in a brick wall as far as coming up with a new design. I was running around in circles so I decided to take a step back from it and do a couple of side things. Which, I am surprised to announce worked! And within a day I had come up with a design concept, which I LOVE. I sooo want to reveal it, but their is a bigger part of me that wants to keep it under wraps. Today I am starting the html version, before I convert it to a WordPress theme so instead I will leave you with a bit more of the research I have done and the vector image of myself that has spun the concept. The main idea is to keep it as clean and simple as possible so my portfolio pieces will pop, but at the same time showcase my ability and keep that essential me. Oh and before I sign off for today another part of the new design came from an concept I did for a client. I knew as soon as I designed it I knew I WANTED it, and had a little battle inside myself before I sent it off. Lucky for me although she said she loved it, it wasn’t what she was looking for. MWHAH which means I can keep it for myself (and back to the drawing board for that design heh).
27 Apr 2011 No CommentsIntroducing the new logo for Birth Power. This is a special one because the lovely people who I have designed it for purchased my skills though Charity Auctions for the Christchurch Earthquake 2011 that raised in total almost 11 thousand dollars! The team at Birth Power were very specific with their client brief, which made creating their new logo reasonably easy. It always help to know what direction to take a design in, and I am quite happy with the result of this one. Birth Power offer quality Childbirth Education classes to expectant parents and also run an on-line shop, they have four children themselves so have used most of the products they sell. I also whipped them up a facebook Avatar. You can join them on Facebook! Go on, go ‘like’ them and let them know I sent you!
