All About The Idea Window Signage

We were approached by All About The Idea to create artwork based on five famous London landmarks. The landmarks and accompanying text would be printed on vinyl and applied to windows at the top of the Leadenhall Building, facing each landmark. THE CHALLENGE The client required an artistic/freehand style for the five landmarks. The artwork would need to be designed, approved and submitted to the printers within 24 hours.  THE SOLUTION We made a few sketches with the requested freehand style in mind, which were submitted to the client.

Wedding Invitations

Director of JD Designs, James, wanted to design a unique and creative invitation for his wedding in the summer of 2016 at The Bell in Ticehurst, East Sussex. The venue is located in a beautiful English village and has been voted one of Britains best country pubs. Owing to the rural location, James drew a map which would enable easy navigation, whilst highlighting some local attractions.  Guests are presented with an image of the bride and groom, designed so their hands meet at the envelope cover. Each stage of the unfolding process reveals more information about the day.  The details were applied in gold foil, with a bell-shaped die cut area to reveal a well-known, romantic quote on the map.
