Textbook - Out of My Universe

Textbook are a great three-piece pop-punk band from Chicago and have a new EP out called 'Out of My Universe' which I whipped up the cover for.

One of the band members is a fan of certain long-running, BBC sci-fi series, so there is a little reference to that which you might spot.

The 6 song EP recorded and mixed by Matt Allison (with help from Justin Yates) and availble to purchase online from those agreeable chaps at Boss Tuneage Records for the princely sum of only £3 - you should head here immediately and pick one up!

Textbook are on their way to our inclement shores so UK folk should have a look at their tour dates and swing by to see them if you can. They are lovely lads and would appreciate multiple drinking companions.


Red Robot Media logo design

I recently worked with new start-up Red Robot Media on coming up with a new logo for them and some direction on branding and type.


For a very detailed walkthrough of the design process please head on over to my Behance page. This covers my thinking and rationale behind some of the design choices and also talks about the importance of involving your client in the process.  Hopefully this will be of interest to young designers or potential clients wanting to see more of the process.

If you're interested in hiring me for your design/logo/branding project: get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!

The AoC Guide to Silkscreen Printing


The slides are prepared and I'm actually quite pleased at the way in which they convey the printing process.

All that we need now is an audience to absorb the information and pretty pictures: 'Better Culture' IX, takes place this Tuesday 7th June from 7pm at Stylus, in Leeds University Union. Tickets are £5 and can be purchased here.

See you there!
