Projects
  • Dr. Martens - Tough As You
    Dr. Martens - Tough As YouThroughout 2018, I played a role within the creative team at Dr. Martens to help market the campaign 'Tough As You'. The campaign concept was worked on and created by an external agency called 'We Are Social'. We worked very closely with the teams to create a range of different marketing techniques in a variety of different platforms such as mobile, retail and advertising. The following is the first phase of the campaign which is due to run for two years.
  • Illustration
    IllustrationWhilst I have a passion for branding, logo design and type, I have always had a love for drawing. What started out as a secondary Instagram account, quickly developed into a life of its own, until I decided to give my illustrations an identity of their own. I occasionally moonlight as a freelance illustrator under the handle ‘HickIllustration’.
  • OFFICE Shoes - Get Fresh
    OFFICE Shoes - Get FreshNew year, new you! 2017's opening campaign for OFFICE shoes was inspired by the concept of new beginnings & fresh starts. The aim of the scheme was to compliment the feelings of optimism that we all feel at the beginning of each year.

The brand identity was briefed in to replicate contemporary cafe’s and coffee shops to give it the visual edge on the competing market. The logo needed to be versatile enough to be able to be translated onto shop fronts, stickers and various apparel. The client then went on to build his brand around th
  • ABC Skateboarding School
    ABC Skateboarding SchoolA commissioned project to come up with an identity for a local skateboard school based in Hertfordshire. I came up with a series of logos and t-shirt designs for the skate staff to wear whilst conducting lessons at local skateparks around the area. I created a logo, selected a colour palette, designed uniforms and stickers to allow for a cost-effective marketing strategy for the school. As the school began to grow in popularity, we then went on to screen print boards and produce more apparel.
  • Coco Grey Jewellery
    Coco Grey JewelleryA commissioned project to create a brand identity for a start-up freelance silversmith. High profile logos and monotone colours became very apparent within the market research process, along with clean cut iconography and elegant serif fonts. I worked collaboratively with the client to come up with a full brand identity for the business, carefully focusing on type, iconography and muted tones which convey a sense of a personal touch to the consumer.
