Freelance update

June 16th 2012

Sorry, been a bit slack on blogging lately. I’ve been having the traditional freelancer dilemma of going on holiday soon, eek, SO MUCH to get done before we go. The last few weeks have been ridiculous – not even in the showy-off get-me kind of way: in the 14-hour days, wrist aching, I need to learn to manage my time better, kind of way. Anyway, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel – off to Copenhagen and Malmo next week and I am looking forward to five whole days work-free. Once I’ve finished everything off over this weekend, anyway.

It’s all worth it though really because I’ve been doing some great projects that I’m very proud of. Here’s a look at some of the stuff I’ve been up to in the last few months. continues to keep me busy and it’s fantastic to see the site I designed pick up so fast from its launch in April. It’s grown massively with a wonderfully curated selection of sales and I’m so proud of the team there. Oh, and next week I’ll be selling some of my prints and posters over there so go sign up if you haven’t already!

I redesigned the web home of awesome kitty film series Simon’s Cat, and I’m also blogging for them every Friday so pop over and read my posts! I even got my own avatar drawn by Simon, amazing. I also redesigned the site of production company Tandem who manage Simon’s Cat: proof that one good job always leads to another (two, or three).

I love the odd non-webby jobs that are thrown my way, especially when I get to turn to illustration. I did this suite of wedding stationery for a very cool couple who wanted mini portraits and a woodland theme. She was the dream client and loved the result, as do I.

A little WordPress-based site and identity for food stylist Kate Wesson, designed to show off the photography to the fullest.

At the moment I’m working for another startup which is launching soon, a social weather-reporting app, a project for Red Bull with the ace Sidekick Studios, the website for a Masterchef winner’s restaurant and a coffee company’s website… and there I was thinking things might wind down soon…
