Personal project I have been meaning to do for years… pardon the pun.
I think it’s pretty obvious what the two years signify don’t you think?
Recently completed the design work on a new logo for Revolve Fitness.
The logo is to accompany their new Kettlebell Cardio (KBC) training program. KBC is an innovative new group functional training program that incorporates fluid style kettlebell, cardio and dynamic core training. KBC’s unique results based training system allows you to track and develop your performance while the 45 minute format enables you to train smarter and at a higher intensity to develop your inner athlete.
Original sketch that the final logo was based on
The aim was to create an uncomplicated, fun and energetic logo that would appeal to both sexes. The logo needed to be versatile enough to work on clothing and fitness equipment as well as printed literature.

The Hebden Bridge Town Hall redevelopment has been open now for over 6 months and I think I’m right in saying that all the offices are now occupied. A friend of mine recently enquired about an office here and has been added to a waiting list. Makes me quite proud that I was one of the original tenants that signed up for an office while the redevelopment was still a car park.
Just before Christmas, I had a walk round the building and a sneaky peak in to everyone’s office – just to get an idea of who was here and what services they offered. It’s fair to say that apart from the odd business card ‘Blu Tacked’ to the door, it’s almost impossible to know who is who and what they do without knocking on and being neighbourly/nosey.
When I originally moved in to my office last August, door signage was a job I added to my ‘To Do’ list. But for one reason or another, it ended up being one of those jobs that never became a priority. That was until my office wander just before Christmas. I now decided it was time to take the initiative and deck out my door. I may not know what everyone else is up to but at least they’ll know whats going on behind my door. It also brings a welcome touch of colour to the corridor, something the owners of the building have felt quite positive about.
So far the response to the door vinyl has been fantastic. I’ve heard comments such as… “You’re the guy with THAT door”, and “I love your door, we want one”
For the first time in a couple of weeks, there has been a break in the clouds and I’ve managed to get a few photographs of The Town Hall and the Creative Quarter.

Recently completed the design work on the latest Creative Calderdale event invite.
The main speaker at the next event is Frank Boyd, Director or the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network.
Here’s Creative Calderdale’s blurp about the event:
Currently the Director of CIKTN, the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network, Frank will deliver a talk on the impact of convergence on the digital economy, detailing the opportunities and challenges for creative businesses, and excitingly, will be announcing a new, government funded £1.8 million competition.
Pushing creative and technical boundaries since 1989, Frank has been bringing together leading experts from across the film, TV and interactive media sectors, to explore new ways to produce compelling, convergent and transmedia content.
He has worked in both the public and private sector, and has acted as producer, funder and trainer on a series of innovative, creative and economic programmes across the arts, broadcast and education, and in the UK, Europe, the US and Australia.
Now supporting the UK creative industries, particularly in the area of emerging technologies, through his leadership of CIKTN (which is funded by the UK government agency Technology Strategy Board) Frank will be offering £1.8 million to developers in a series of competitions and feasibility projects and his talk will include more information about this and offer guidance on how to access these funds.
The Creative Calderdale event is being held at the Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre, Halifax on Thursday 4th October 2012. The events starts at 6pm. Contact Ha Smith at Creative Calderdale for more information.
Kreative Bomb has moved!
As of the beginning of August, I’ve been working out of my new office in Hebden Bridge.
The Creative Quarter offers permanent office space as well as temporary ‘hot desking’ facilities for those just fancying a change of scenery. Conferencing and board room facilities are available for tenants as well as plenty of exhibition space for those wanting to display their talents to fellow residents and members of the public.
My contact details are still the same but if you fancy popping in for a brew, The Town Hall is situated on St George’s Street, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
Pictures, and more furnishing to arrive soon.
Many thanks to the clients who recently gave positive recommendations to RAR regarding Kreative Bomb Limited.
In case you are wondering who the Recommended Agency Registry is, here is a bit of insightful copy I lifted off their website:
“Recommendedagencies.com is an online sourcing tool for marketing and procurement professionals. Using an online research process we tap into the power of the marketing community to find out which agencies come recommended.”
Initially, what this means is I can now display their logo on my website/email/letterhead – almost like a badge of honour. The plan then is to become a fully paid-up member of RAR and hopefully capitalise on the great networking and referral functions they offer members.
