About me
Hello, My name is Jagjit and I'm a graphic designer based in London. I like creating meaningful and memorable brand experiences with interesting people and ideas. You can see a few of the things I've done on this website that have been created while in full time work, during current and previous roles, and during my time as freelance. A few years ago I graduated in Industrial Design and Technology from Brunel University London and then gained a Masters in Design from University of Leeds. Now I get to work on exciting ideas with amazing people, which has so far involved creative campaigns for retail, corporate, games, trailers, mobile apps, and virtual reality. When I am not working I like to try new ideas and make things that I think might be fun for myself or friends to see. But what I enjoy most is that I might learn a bit more about myself in the process.

  • Jumping off the Ivory Tower
    Jumping off the Ivory TowerA brand identity for a podcast hosted by Prof. Julie Macfarlane and Dayna Cornwall about social justice and self representation in the legal system. The podcast is available on iTunes and Soundcloud. The approach was to create a simple yet versatile logo and brand that would be legible on screens and multiple digital platforms. It had to represent education, law, and sometimes handle controversial topics in a professional way. Working closely together to understand what Julie and Dayna wanted
  • Topshop Topman 2020
    Topshop Topman 2020Topshop Topman (TS/TM) 2020 is a strategy project reporting their forecast for the next two years. Rather than the usual corporate identity I was asked to create something to impress the internal stakeholders. The outcome expands upon the recently updated TS/TM brand identity and is inspired by brutalism and publication trends. I began with variations of the 2020 title and used a minimal, typographical approach to create impact and flow. By not limiting the guidelines too much, various aspects
  • Arcadia Fashion Festival
    Arcadia Fashion FestivalArcadia’s in-house fashion festival celebrated the launch of AW18 for each brand. The festival included guest speakers, workshops and giveaways. The approach was to highlight the AW fashion trends by using new brand imagery and careful colour choices. The graphic style chosen, inspired by brutalism, uses rules and a constant grid to bring consistency between each artwork, allowing each to work as a standalone or grouped together.
  • Four Health
    Four HealthFour Health UK is a health blog focusing on Mind, Body, Fitness and Nutrition. Providing everyday insight on these four areas for a healthier lifestyle. Four Health also provides information on natural produce, smoothie recipes and much more. Four Health required a brand to represent everything they represent. With their presence being online and connecting through social media, the approach was to stand out form other health identities with a bold typeface and bright colours, matching Four He
  • Sugar Rush'd
    Sugar Rush'dI was approached to create a mural for a dessert cafe in Stevenage. The client wanted a fun, wacky, bright dessert themed illustration to cover the entire side of one wall inside their cafe. I worked closely with the client to understand the theme of what they were after as well as getting the illustrations style right. A number of smaller illustrations were created before the final one. From this I drew out on paper before digitally illustrating, allowing me to constantly develop the illustrati
