Shine was originally set up by TfGM as an initiative aimed at mangers within the business to help their employees improve at their job. An example of this would be for managers to encourage their staff to partake in development courses and learn new skills which would help them ‘Shine’ in their job.
To accompany the information that was sent to target managers, a ‘Shine Pack’ was also included that consisted of (tin of sweets, stickers, keyring torch and novelty mini shoe shine)
Designing business cards for a client? No problem.
Designing business cards for yourself? Now that’s a whole different ball game.
What design? What material? What finish? The possibilities are endless. More often than not, you can end up with a whole collection of ideas just gagging to be sent off to the printers. Therefore, when I decided to get some new cards done, I was faced with the task of nailing down an idea and print solution. Sometimes, you just need to pick a design and go with it. As for print finishes, the ever reliable online printers Moo.com had just the solution… their Luxe range.
Three 200gsm boards duplexed together (one red sandwiched between two whites) and 10 variations of the back design – very happy with the result.
Recently completed the brand design work for a new product from UAP Limited.

UAP Limited claim the i-Plate is “The most Innovative Letterplate in the World” and they wanted a product logo, packaging and advertisement design that reflected its target position in the market.
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”
Recently completed the design work on a logo for Nelson-based Italian deli – La Dolce Vita.
Sarah and Sara ultimately have plans to open a Deli-type shop, but in the meantime, they will be selling there authentic Italian products at local farmer/food markets.
As and when the business becomes more successful, I fully expect there to be more rollout of their brand across packaging, stationery and website and in-shop branding.
Recently completed the design work on a series of key promotional pieces for HEROtsc’s internal recruitment drive.
HEROtsc operate a number of call centres around the UK and wanted to step up recruitment by asking current employees to ‘recommend a friend’ to apply for a job with HEROtsc – a Future Hero if you will.
Requirements were to design a pair of humorous superhero characters who would be the face of this campaign and appear on all the related printed material – internal emails, leaflets, posters, popup banners etc.
Initially there was a competition to name the characters – the chosen names being Dexter and Penelope. Then there was the rollout of leaflets and posters to promote the ‘Recommend a Future Hero’.
My final task was to provide HEROtsc with a selection of library images of the two characters for their own internal use.
