Forths asked me to design them some courtesy cards to send to clients following a meeting.

I came up with three designs with varying degrees of formality in their tone of voice, giving them the option to match a to their individual client relationships.

Love & Happiness according to Dolly & John

This month I had the chance to put my creative skills to use in a non-professional capacity by entering a competition set by a young London-based artist by the name of RYCA (pronounced Rye-ka).

The brief was simple: depict “love” and “happiness” using 2 symbols (he used hearts and smileys in his work).

I took my inspiration from the music world where Dolly Parton once famously sang “Love Is Like A Butterfly” and John Lennon penned the somewhat controversially titled “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” for The Beatles.

I was picked as one of two winners and was given a free “Love & Happiness” print by the artist for my efforts!

I recently completed this identity design for SNAP Executive, a newly formed recruitment consultancy whose aim is to match the best candidates with the best jobs.

Not only did I design the the logo and associated stationery including business cards, letterheads and compliments slips, I also came up with the name “Snap”, which (in case you hadn’t already guessed) is a playful reference to their corporate matchmaking credentials.

This is the first installment of what I hope will be a regular feature on my blog. Spec of the Month gives me the opportunity to showcase my talents as a creative, free from the constraints of the “real world”. If you’d like to get involved and suggest a brand for me have a crack at then please leave a comment below.
