Dirty Disko...



I have been asked to design the new flyers for a night called Dirty Disko, which puts on a variety of electro, dubstep, trance etc music nights at The Pad nightclub. They have recently wanted to put a more illustrative look to their flyers and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. After eavesdropping and flashing my card, I am all set to help them illustratise their promotional items. Above are the initial ideas for both logos and characters. The first picture will be the basis of the flyer / poster for their next night. I have posted some other type and pictoral logos that will be used in future promo items. Keep looking for updates as they get printed and as more ideas come on board. htt...

Abram Games

I went to an exhibition today showing some of the works of Abram Games...really interesting! If you about in Bedford, check out the Bedford Gallery where it is being held until October. The lithograph prints are still so bright and colourful, with sneaky peeks into his sketchwork too.


These are a couple of the prints I picked up.

One of the things I noted from reading the blurb is a quote:

''I never work large because posters seen from a distance are small. If ideas don't work an inch high, they will never work.'' - A Games.

Apparently, only until he was completely happy with a piece of work would he put a full-stop after his signature.
