The site is up!

The logos I designed while at The Education Business Partnership are up!

While at The EBP I was asked to design logos and a page design for the Yorkshire Building Society's new website, www.money-minds.co.uk . This page, aimed at young people, is to help them gain financial education and experience. So please! Go have a look at what I helped create.

The EBP!

I recently completed a "Creative Marketing Assistant" internship with the Education Business Partnership, EBP for short. In this role I put a lot of my creative skills to use in a professional environment.
Projects I was involved in included:
T-shirt design, logos, document design, designing and ordering smaller items such as name badges.
Above is the t-shirt design for a charity called "One Me". I was involved in many parts of the launch of the charity, but this is perhaps the biggest project I worked on. This t-shirt is intended for volunteers to wear when out in the community.
Next, I was asked to work on an A4 booklet for the "Red Stem" event at RAF Scampton. This booklet was handed out to guests from local schools. The booklet included, comments from the special guest speakers, and logos from the sponsors. This booklet followed the companies colours and branding.

These above three images, are part of a project for the Yorkshire Building Society. I was asked to design logos for pages on a website, which was aimed at younger users. I used the companies colours and theme of overlapping colours to keep in with the style.
I really enjoyed my time with the EBP, and my experiences are far wider than the few projects I have mentioned here. I worked on small projects for internal uses, such as name badges and business cards. Up to large scale events, where my work was seen by hundreds of people.

Wow, I can't even remember the last time I have posted on here. Real life getting in the way again I guess.

Basically I have had two jobs since February. One my normal day job, and the second working for the EBP as a... wait for it... Creative Marketing Assistant (Intern). This role has really opened up my career choices now. Not only can I do illustration, but I now know how to work in a more deadline orientated environment. I know what to ask clients, such as "Do you have company colours or branding?". An I know how to put trim marks on stuff now! It is my last day on Monday so once I am done I can take stock, do up my portfolio, list all the projects I have worked on, and start something new.

I have a master plan, and I will be working as an Illustrator, not just doing it in my spare time.

In other news I have been asked to do some canvases for a residential home. There are 4 units, and the residents have been asked "What is love?" We were thinking of painting some trees or something nice like that.
