Drawings on Pinterest

J_Blog8I’ve always loved drawing and I still think that it’s an important part of any creative process – whether it’s graphic design, architecture or product design. I recently uploaded some of my life drawings to the Blok Graphic Pinterest account so feel free to have a look. Life-drawing

Wedding Stationary

J_Blog4The above image is a colour proof from a wedding invitation I designed for a friend of mine. The theme was a 50’s sort of vibe with blue and yellow as the main colours. An opportunity to play with some nice typefaces!

Halkin Invitations

J_Blog5Sauce communications asked us to design the invitations for this preview event at the Shard. The invites were printed on a heavy 800gsm colour-plan card with silver foil de-bossed text and logo. The reverse featured a duplexed colour photograph of the restaurant.

Blok Rebus

With a tip of the hat towards Paul Rand we introduce the Blok Graphic Rebus. To be added to the forthcoming postcard pack.

 

Sacred Wisdom of the American Indians

J_Indians Blog This cover is featured by Face Out Books (a US blog on book cover design). The Sacred Wisdom of the American Indians has proved to be popular cover and it was nice to share the design process with Emily and her team.

Brains: Mind as Matter

Just finished the guidebook for a major new exhibition at the Wellcome Collection. It shows over 150 artefacts including real brains, artworks, manuscripts, artefacts, videos and photography. The book features the majority of exhibits as well as essays by neuroscientist Richard Wingate and art historian Marius Kwint.

We are 2

A new financial year marks our 2nd birthday. Seemed like a good time to design the numerals for the blok typeface. Thank you to all our clients who we have worked with over the past 24 months – looking forward to the next year.

Blok marketing

Received our new promotional material last week. Nicely printed at IBA graphics in West London. 400gsm high white stock with the Blok alphabet de-bossed. Also printed new business cards in the new paper stock with the logo debossed. All looking good!
