Play On Words Exhibition

Play On Words / Giochi Di Parole is an exhibition about ideas, how they take shape and how they make a difference to our clients’ businesses.

The goal is to expose the design process and bring it into the physical realm.

Each project displayed looks at the relationship between language, context and meaning: from the playful typographic approach of the Freestyle Magazine titles, to the more rigorous work for corporate clients, the common denominator is always the manipulation of language and the exploration of its context to unveil the unique idea that is at the heart of a brief.

Now on Cargo

I recently put a selection of my work on Cargo.

In their own words: Cargo is a web publishing CMS and community-building platform where everything, from the ever-changing visual appearance of people’s personal websites, to the user interface is built around the work shared by its members. Our design philosophy is that the content is the Cargo.

Cargo’s goal is to dramatically increase the accessibility and exposure of creative individuals on the Internet, while aspiring to build a networked context that will contribute to the culture as a whole. Read more

I decided to upload only graphics and visual arts, with the intention of using it as a second portfolio dedicated to the discipline. Including both work for clients and personal projects.

Cinema 4D

Since going mac (my last computer was stolen) I’ve had to learn some new programs… One of these includes Cinema 4D.

I have to say I’ve found it reasonably easy to pick up after years of using 3d software and the render engine is pretty sharp too. Check out the elaborated ‘POD Spring’ logo above. See it in high-resolution.

Today I made two branded, plywood cases to ship a project. All stencils, including logo and handling instructions, cut and sprayed by hand.

FSM Bambi

Well, it’s only been a short time – what seems like a couple of weeks – since we brought you FreeStyle Magazine #2, with a fantastic Sir Paul Smith cover and Frisbee.  But we’re back in the studio, hard at work, to bring you yet another great installment to the world of FreeStyle, Fun, Fashion and Frisbee…  Yes! We’re currently working on FreeStyle Magazine issue 3!

I can’t tell you just yet who we have as the designer of this issues disc, however, I can assure you he’s big and a true FreeStyler and friend!

This edition of course will be packed full of wonderfully creative work from the fields of Fashion, Photography, Art, Music and LifeStyle, and all true to the FreeStyle ethic. Just to give you a little taster of the quality of work to come, I have attached a title page produced for one of the fashion stories, entitled ‘Bambi’.

Stay tuned to find out a release date…

Freestyle Magazine Issue 2

Issue Two is here! After a very challenging time distributing, marketing and selling, we have managed to put together a magazine that once again will turn heads and see frisbees flying through the air.

We have raised our contributor profile so that we are working with photographers such as Uli weber and Jonah Samson, Stylists such as Grace Woodward and an array of talented artists, writers and illustrators.

But aside from a fantastic magazine we have a fantastic Frisbee! We are exited to tell you that our Issue two “fastback” model frisbee carries a wonderful design by Sir Paul Smith. The disc has the classic Pantone 806c pink- a favorite of Sir Paul and carries the slogan “Take Pleasure Seriously” in a metallic silver and also with his easily recognizable signature in the middle of the disc. This issue promises to be a true design collectable.

Royal Mail

I received my sisters wedding invitation in the post today…  It got delayed and arrived weeks after she posted it, however, Royal Mail kindly explained why with the addition of a sticker.  The colour combination of their blue sticker with my sisters red envelope and wax seal is so perfect, it’s as if the two were designed for each other.
