Two press images from a recent shoot for Portsmouth electro rock quartet The Exits to accompany their new album.
OXYGEN THIEF SOLO
Oxygen Thief isn’t always a full band, occasionally Barry heads out solo, so he asked me for some individual shots. This is a composited created from the original group photo shoot with some new elements.
To the right is the final tour poster (designer unknown) using my image.
SURVIVAL TOUR POSTER 2014
In keeping with last years Survival Tour poster, I decided to keep the general design the same except for a mix up of colour and a new image.
Bristol based gig collective Deadpunk asked me to design a poster and identity for this years August Bank Holiday festival.
Not content with just designing a poster/online material, I put together this brief animated announcement trailer. Music courtesy of SSS.
BLOODBUZZ DEMO COVER
Cover for digital album release for the Bloodbuzz live demo.
GREAT CYNICS / MUNCIE GIRLS
This is the final sleeve design for the Great Cynics/Muncie girls split 12” on Specialist Subject Records.
The awesome long exposure swirl photograph was taken by Jonathan Minto & the inlay photo is by James Bragg. I was in charge of the layout/design/text. Add to that some sweet coloured wax and this is great looking record!
STEVE GULLICK - NIRVANA DIARY
This short film explores Steve’s experiences with the band Nirvana as well as preparation for his forthcoming ‘Nirvana Diary’ book which is up for pre order via Pledge Music: pledgemusic.com/projects/nirvanadiary
GARRET KLAHN POSTER
Poster for the Newcastle date of the Garrett Klahn/Karl Larsson tour. Huge fan of both musicians, especially Garrett’s work in Texas Is The Reason. The poster consists of a collage which I re-worked to look a little more eye catching, the original collage can be seen at the bottom.
WORKPLACE PENSIONS POSTER
I was asked to produce some internal campaign posters to make employees aware of the forthcoming UK pension changes. I took two long serving members of the company, photographed them and ages them to retirement age (if we’re lucky).
As well as the finished posters, there’s some close up work of the finished process.
NO MARKS/HYALIN SPLIT 7”
Due out in the next few weeks on Brassneck Records, I took on the design/layout for the new No Marks/Hyalin split &” consisting of ex and current members of Blocko, The Down & Outs and a bunch of other great UK bands.
What was more exciting was using a painting from Charming Baker who some might consider a big deal. I’m a big fan of his work and pretty much had free reign over a handful of his paintings.
RACE CAR HEARTS PRESS PHOTO 2012
LIGHTS OUT! 7” SCREEN PRINT
One of my favourite projects to date! This goes back to maybe 2011, German record label Yo-Yo asked me to design a the B-side screen print for what would become the farewell release for Lights Outs!
ABOVE THEM T-SHIRT
T shirt design for UK band above them 2 colour print on white shirts.
EVERY TIME I DIE TOUR POSTER
This was designed for the Rock Sound Riot Tour which featured ETID, Trash Talk, Defeater & Spycatcher. The magician was also re-worked for the stage banner.
