Mr & Mrs

My friend Rosanna was in charge of the Mr&Mrs quiz for her cousin's hen night. Thing is, she wanted it to look nice. So she asked for my assistance.

This was the result - though I fear I probably shouldn't have spent so much time on it, as it was clearly going to end up with shots spilt all over it!

Humblesticks

Shock horror, a blog post.

Let's face it, these days my time is pretty much dedicated to work work, but it's lovely now and again to get stuck in to a little something on the side. And that little something recently was Humblesticks.


Selling vintage and upcycled furniture and lighting, Humblesticks was set up by husband and wife team Richard Holman and Katy Shooter, and was in need of a brand identity.

The simple logo and colour scheme was then developed in to an ecommerce website (www.humblesticks.co.uk) in collaboration with Digitalog, giving Humblesticks a great online platform to sell their wares.








In other news, it was the 2013 Southend Film Festival over the May bank holiday, and I was on board for the 4th year designing the brochure and tickets. The gala night was brilliant - a great Q&A with the excellent Phil Davis after the screening of Borrowed Time.

Shouting Signals

Essex band Shouting Signals released their shiny new EP last week, and I had the pleasure of working on a bit of artwork for it.



It turned in to a bit of a family affair, with my brother James Player directing and producing their new music video, too. Looking slick!

Shiny new website

www.lucyplayer.com

Well, I'm excited to say that I've launched my brand new re-designed portfolio website!

I somewhat accidentally fell in to web design 2 years ago, after graduating with a purely print-based portfolio. I seem to have fallen for the charms of digital design, so felt it was about time my portfolio site demonstrated my web design skills through the approach to the site itself, rather than just the projects it showcases.

A little logo update

I do like a spot of logo design now and again. This week I've been working on some designs for Viva Pictures, and realised there was a few others I'd done recently that I hadn't shared:

Full English

So, a project I've been working on over the summer has recently gone live. I've collaborated with Full English on various projects over the past year, the latest being the redesign of their shiny new portfolio site. Check it out at fullenglish.com.





Full English are currently building my re-designed portfolio site at the moment, so that should be ready to reveal to the world in the next week, I reckon (yay!).


Anyway, I've been having a nice summer, what with the Olympics and all that (went along to the gymnastics which was pretty cool), and keeping busy at work (you can take a look at a campaign I've been working on at The Grid here if you like), and there's not much else to report really.

Let's be honest, this blog gets pretty neglected doesn't it? If I were you, I'd just follow me on Twitter or Instagram if you want to keep abreast of my inane ramblings and photos of, er, food, buildings and signs, mostly. @lucylikestodraw
