Portfolio

Dave Smith Bobsleigh Branding

Dave Smith, a professional athlete for the Team GB Bobsleigh team, sought branding for his bid to compete at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Sochi. Aligning Dave’s patriotism, taking inspiration from the Union Jack flag and Team GB brand I combined Daves initial ‘D’ with the shape & motion of a bobsleigh.

Changing Social Branding Launch

Changing Social are a London-based startup that offer services in adoption strategies for the Microsoft suite. In the past two years I've designed a clean & professional brand identity, exhibition graphics, brochures and marketing materials to help the brand with their launch in 2018.

Vapouround - Brand | Print | Digital

Vapouround Magazine has grown into the vaping industry’s leading publication. As they grew it diversified into new branches such as Vapouround Lounge, E-liquid and the Vapouround Awards. During my time I created designs for magazines, business cards, roller banners, brochures, leaflets and websites.
