Full identity for specialist catering company Pickled Walnut.
Pickled Walnut Catering are a catering company with a difference, approaching every new job as a creative project with its own tailored solution.
Using a new strap line - 'Catering with character' as a driver for the new identity, we aimed to give Pickled Walnut an approachable and human tone of voice by working closely with Metal Magenta to write engaging copy and headlines which ran throughout all materials. This was combined with a strong new colour palette and photography.
The identity update consisted of a wide range of material from stationary, brochure's, menu's, responsive site, livery and signage.
The Lantern Theatre Liverpool is an independent fringe venue with character and this needed to be reflected in their new identity. In a divergent approach from most theatre indents, LTL needed to strike three chords - contemporary, bold and playfull.
Using three modular primary shapes to represent each facet of the theatre (theatre, music and comedy) along with a palette of three vibrant colours, a distinct identity was able to be created which didn't rely on imagery. Custom pattern work based on the three shape and colour signifiers were also created.
The new identity was run across signage, advertising and a responsive site
Event identity for the ROTA Gala Dinner 2011.
ROTA (Reach Out To Asia) hold a prestigious annual dinner to raise awareness and funds for its charity. The lavish affair held in Qatar welcomes local and International dignitaries and celebrities to join them.
The idea for the event identity was to highlight the successes of ROTA in a bold and direct manner which would work as a system across the myriad of materials which needed producing. To do this I used of a framing device and positive photography with a systematic colour palette for different sections of the material (gold for invites, attendees material, green for main event identity and purple and yellow for other items.
Working in Doha for 4 months with WRG Qatar, I oversaw and executed the identity across all manner of material from, invites and menu's to advertising, way finding and environmental graphics.
