An up-and-coming genre-defying (they describe their music as “fizzed-up, synthed-up, sugar-coated, colour-coded FidgetPop-IndieRock”) Manchester band, E-Numbers, were looking to improve on their logo, so we gave them this.
A small but beautiful cafe & restaurant in Didsbury wanted a vintage feel to their new food menu, but didn’t want a total re-brand. We took the existing logo and colour scheme, dialed it down a touch, and put together a menu we feel matches the fusion of modern and boutique styles found at the eatery.
This really was a case of true Instadesign. I pieced together a few initial logo ideas for this band, and everybody unanimously voted for this design without a moment’s hesitation. Within a few hours, an identity was born.
Between 2009 and 2011 I took on pro bono work designing an online magazine for Blank Media Collective, Blankpages. This soon became the largest single layout design project we had undertaken. Here is a small selection of the issues I put together.

Fotoflips approached us with a new venture in the rapidly growing party favours industry. They needed an identity, website and marketing materials to launch their business. Here is a sample of what we produced: Why not take a look at the website too!
In 2010, legendary Manchester bar, Dry201 opened a new club venue in their basement. To start off with, it was going to be called Below. At that time, we were commissioned to create the logo. (The name has since been changed to Dry Live).
