A nice little identity we've just produced for the Clever Cows.
We end the week with the completion of the DSE Head Quarters branding. The project was received with both a rapturous applause from the client and a pat on the back to the DJ team. It was great to see the branding through from concept to completion and exceeded all the clients’ expectations.
Members of the DJ team will be joining DSE next weekend to help celebrate their success in achieving a Queens Award for International Trade 2011.
Congratulations to all round.
The digital switchover has finally started across Yorkshire this week (so I've been told). This see the Emley Moor mast which can be seen from our front window switch its signals from analogue to digital.
Did tha know:
- The first mast collapsed in 1969 and the one we see today was built in 1971
- It's the tallest freestanding structure in the UK (330.4 metres high)
- It's 25th tallest tower in the world
- The tower is a Garde II listed building
- Today the mast serves around four million people
I am currently doing some work experience with Design Junkie, my name's Gini and i'm currently studying Graphic Communication at Bath Spa University. It has been a great experience working here, everyone has been very welcoming, really felt like part of the team.
During my stay I have been lucky to have some help with my current university project. I have based this project around my recent visit to India. It involved producing a piece of work that can be described as a portrait. The idea of this portrait explains how the Indian culture looks similar in our eyes and their identity is lost. I have only chosen a minority of their culture reflecting the identity within one factory based in Pune. The numbers establish the exact coordinates of their location. We've finalised the preparation work and I look forward to seeing the final output.
The current DSE rebrand has turned it’s attention to the internal offices this week, starting with the Marketing suite.
The room is accessed through a glass entrance which has been rebranded with graphic contravsion. The showpiece is the four company brands identities, manufactured and routered from 10/20mm mdf, which have been individually mounted on the wall. Eight display stands, currently in manufacture will stand proudly on the adjacent wall standing three metres high by one metre wide. Even the 16 chairs have been reupholstered to incorporate an embroidered logo tab.
Branding to the rest of the manufacturing site will continue next week, whilst the DJ studio will continue production on a 96 page brochure pack for this Market leader.
One of the many good things we do hear at DJ is to annually help support one of our client’s DSE, who provide tremendous support for the Saint Catherine’s Hospice in Scarborough. Our contribution was a selection of gift wrapped champagne, various brightly coloured gift bags and stickers to compliment this year’s ‘Beach Ball’ theme. The evening resulted in over £20,000 being raised which will help the Hospice plan their forthcoming year’s budget.
So, a toast to a good cause may be in order.
I finally got the chance to visit the Hepworth Gallery at the weekend of it's opening. I've been excited about this for ages, mostly because it's happening in my home city and nothing much happens in Wakefield.
If you don't know The Hepworth Wakefield is Yorkshire's new art gallery showing work of major contemporary artists and one of the UK's largest purpose-built galleries outside London it also provides a permanent spot for works by sculptor Barbara Hepworth.
Everything about it is fantastic, the architecture, the work, the space, the people, the typography and last but not least the free charcoal.
If you get chance, go for a visit.
With KKi’s rapid expansion, DJ was commissioned to capture their new Factory 3, a state-of-the art Aftersales facility. Thought I’d share this shot with you – check out the colour in this spray booth background.
We had the pleasure of working with Guy Farrow for two days this week at his awesome converted Victorian school studio over in Leeds. The brief was to capture a new fresh layout/look for the DSE product ranges which will be used in may different medias throughout this year.
The images look fantastic and will make my life a lot easier when it comes to the designs. Just need to go through the contact sheet and get choosing.
Had a strange encounter with a mobility scooter 1800ft up on Holme Moss this week. The man at the controls, an ex-service man, Simon Angel MBE travelling from John O’Groats to Lands End, the brain child of ‘The Rally for Remembrance’ project.
Details can be found at http://www.rallyforremembrance.co.uk – make a donation, he’s an inspiration to all.
According to the AA route planner he’s only got 380 miles to go!
Some new printed literature just delivered in for 3˚, looking very sharp
Being the interesting fella that I am, a friend of my Gran's thought I might like this old Nalcom SUPER 8 video camera and projector that had been collecting dust in his loft for nearly 30 years. It's nearly perfect condition and believed to be all in working order, such a great looking/well designed product. The typography is spot on too
