This crest was commissioned for use in an upcoming wedding. It references the ancient persian heritage of the Arsiwalla family and also their current lives in New Zealand through the dog figures and the silver ferns. Looks best in black I think.
This advert was placed in a hairdressers magazine for a previous client. I still like the grungey look to it. You’d be amazed how much those scissors cost.
Part of a photo shoot for A La Francaise bakery products and Shore Mariner sea food products. Still one of my favorite photos, it captures warmth of the morning sun on delicious, freshly baked croissants.
CD and jacket cover design for the Hokianga Artist Recording Project, a christian group trying to lead at risk teenagers in the Hokianga away from sex and drugs by getting them interested in music and performing.
CD and cover plus promotional material for The Johnsons first (and only) album launch gig.
Letterpress wedding invite for an old friend. Letterpress is a rarely used but fabulous printing technique which uses fibrous, heavy paper stock from England. The letters are pressed (hence the name) into the paper like an emboss which gives a wonderful textured result. See more examples here; http://www.magpiepress.co.nz/
I was introduced to the guys at TWL by a previous sign writer as an apology for being below par on a couple of jobs. They needed to finally produce a complete catalogue after 45 years in business. With 19,000 product lines, what they hoped would take 3 months took nearly a year and a half and became a 500+ page monster. Not exciting but a great ‘bread & butter’ job.
Here’s a small selection of B&W photos taken by me and shown here because I like them.
