  • Jack Beard Photo
    Jack Beard PhotoTo design a logo for a freelance photographer. The client is a friendly, customer orientated worker but professional in practice, so the challenge was to bring this to the logo... and inevitably the branding. My idea was to create a illustration based logo. Fun to look at but should work across multiple platforms in both web and print. the typeface should also be friendly, so a script font would ideal, but one that is capable of a formal feel, in the right situation.
  • What we do...

    Group Senior DesignerLightsource bp
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    Leading the international creative team. With a heavy focus on creative strategy and with our global team continuing to grow, rapidly (from 500+ employees), my role has become to make our brands stand out and effectively engage our audience, of mainly large corporate entities and governments. This ultimately starts with the process of reconfiguring our Visual Identities and establish how each of them will work over the long-term. Challenges include clarifying the relationships between each brand and their related outputs. Training and development of team members are increasingly important as well as long-term strategy for digital design and video production. Creative visual advertising campaigns support this and help change misconceptions and promote a sustainable living, in a carbon-free future.
