Later this week I set off on a bit of an adventure. Heading out via Brugge, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Dubai I’ll get in to India on November 12th. The plan is to spend the first month exploring the southern state of Kerala then work my way up to Goa for Christmas and New year. From there, up to Mumbai, across to Delhi, Varanasi, Rishikesh and many more along the way on a 6 month trip.
For the last year and a half I’ve had the pleasure of working for One Green Bean, a creative communications agency specialising in PR, social media and events. Based in the amazing HKX building in Kings Cross, I was lucky enough to work on a wide range of projects for clients such as Virgin Holidays, Nokia, Nestle, Campo Viejo and Sky Ocean Rescue - to name just a few.
For my new business cards I wanted to keep things super simple. On the reverse, this meant stripping back the information to a bare minimum and on the front, letting the logo stand on its own without any distractions.Most important to me was the quality of the materials and the feel of actually holding the cards in your hand. Since I’m more often designing for screen, it’s always nice to have that extra dimension of creating something physical with tactile qualities to consider. In the end I opted for 540gsm duplexed Colourplan card with a nice textured finish.
Crazy to think I picked up my first skateboard over 20 years ago now. Ever since those early days, skateboarding and filming skateboarding have always gone hand in hand for me. Rolling around the local supermarket carpark we’d crudely gaffa-tape a fisheye lens to the front of an old VHS-C camera covered in skate stickers and document our best efforts.
