See some of the graphics work I have produced or been involved in over the years
Leaflet for Boston Blinds
I was asked by Boston Blinds to produce a new double sided A5 flyer for them to be distributed locally. This was to promote the opening of their new showroom in Boston, and included a map and driving instruction on how to find the new location. It also featured a brief list of the products available, contact details, and some photos of the brand new showroom. These were ordered to print by Boston Blinds.
Wedding Promotions Leaflet for HS Visuals
As part of an ongoing partnership with local videographer and animation specialist, HS Visuals, we created a leaflet to showcase what we could offer for weddings. The first section focuses on HS Visuals and what can be produced in the way of video content, followed by a short paragraph about Howland Design and the potential "add-ons" such as wedding stationary. The colours used intended to go for a "classy" and "upmarket" vibe. This has been posted and shared across Social Media channels.
Brochure for Steam & Vintage Festival
In my biggest print job so far, I was tasked with designing and compiling the brochure for the Steam & Vintage Festival in Boston for 2018. I was provided the entries as and when they came in, and these were a simple case of formatting them in the agreed style. However, some of the adverts needed to be created from scratch, including the ones for Taylors Vauxhall and Taylors Ford. Eventually it was sent to print with 750 copies being ordered.
Brochure Advert for Taylors Ford
As part of my work for the Boston Steam & Vintage Festival 2018 Programme, I was sent an image and a small amount of writing. This needed turning into a visually impressive advert to form the back cover of the document. I used the image I was provided to find a larger, more appropriate image which could feature the whole of the car and created the ad. Both the Festival organisers and the dealership were very pleased with the design.
Business Cards for HS Visuals
This was a quick job for a local videographer and animator, HS Visuals, who wanted to kickstart his business with some professional and elegant, yet simple business cards. A total of 250 were ordered to be printed on 450gsm card with a Matt Laminate finish.
Measuring Guides for Direct Order Blinds
I was tasked with creating a series of new Measuring Guides for Direct Order Blinds to replace their dated existing guides. These were to be included in all the packages of samples sent out to customers as quick references on how to measure up their windows for the type of blinds they have requested samples of. The 3 options were Bay Window, Perfect Fit Blinds and a general measuring guide for the inner and outer measurements of windows. These will be printed double sided A5 and included in every sample request.
A5 Leaflet for Howland Design
This flyer was designed for Howland Design to promote the company locally. This A5 leaflet will be distributed around small independent businesses around Boston and the surrounding areas.
Brochure Advert for Taylors Vauxhall
Again, as part of my work for the Boston Steam & Vintage Festival 2018 Programme, I was sent a rough draft of an idea as a Microsoft Word document. As this would need "translating" to Adobe Illustrator, I figured I should put my own spin on it to see if they didn't mind. They were very satisifed with the finished article and were more than happy for it to be used in place of the original idea. This was a full page A5 advert used in the document.
Business Cards for Howland Design
What sort of businessman would I be without business cards? Carried through the branding used on Social Media and this website to ensure it matched the look, using the company colours of Black, White and Blue (#2956A7 if that means anything to you).
Blu Ray Covers - Personal Project
Being a big fan of movies and having quite the Blu-Ray collection, I wondered if I could add a personal touch to a few. Having bought a Stanley Kubrick boxset many years ago, the outer sleeve was looking a bit shabby, so I decided to try my hand at designing some different covers to give each one a new look. This was an entirely personal project aimed at giving me more experience in Photoshop.
