Carrion - at Affordable Art Fair, London

A small selection of works exhibited as part of my last show - Carrion - will be shown at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, London from 20 - 23 October 2011. I will be represented by Axolotl Gallery. (stand 14 at the event).

Opening times here.

Gasoline Dance Machine - logo made neon

The logo I designed for Cabaret Voltaire's new club night Gasoline Dance Machine has been immortalised in neon! I used a very fluid, neon typeface but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would ever be an actual sign. It recalls an old Top of the Pops logo, especially when you see it on it's own lighting rig, surrounded by disco lights and a smoke machine.

Drinking Partners banner designs is a social networking website designed to introduce you to like-minded people in order to expand your social circle, perfect if you have just moved to a new city.

I have done work for them before, this time I was asked to design and illustrate various banners that would appear within the members-only parts of the site.

Drinking Partners proposals / sketches got back in touch with me asking if I could come up with some ideas for banners. These were some of the initial sketches I sent which never made it, but which informed the look of the accepted designs.

Dare! - Soft Cell flyer

In keeping with previous flyers I've done for Jon Pleased Wimmin, 'paying homage' to a classic synth LP, this one recreates the Soft Cell album cover for 'Non Stop Erotic Cabaret', arguably, one of the most influential electronic album ever recorded.

Unfortunately we didn't have the budget to have neon signs made with the amazingly sleazy typeface, but Ryan McGoverne took some great photos of Jon and Donald as Marc and Dave and I managed to photoshop together the 'Dare!' logo into a believable fluoro-sign.

Gasoline Dance Machine - The C90s

Logo and graphics for a brand new club night happening very soon at Cabaret Voltaire.

This is another proposal I did, and to be honest, preferred - but never mind!
