an array of Hop Monster stuffs (well two)

Last few weeks/months i've produced some promo bits for Hop Monster Brewing Co, and its counter partner Georges Brewery.
Including Beer fest tickets/illustrations, pump clips, and adverts.

Bit of a mish mash post but here we go:

a December update, of small proportions

This week i've mostly been working on the company website, see below at some illustrations i've produced and the rest of the site making, and producing new newspaper layouts for a estate agent in Hitchin who need a re-branding on their advertisements.

My boss said as the 'hand rendered' style illos worked so well on our website that i should include some on the re-brand of the newspaper adverts to give them a little more personality.

Here's a couple of them.

two new posts in one day?!

Yes, thats right.

Today i've been putting the finishing touches on the company website with some illos.

Its been a whole month since i've posted.

What with being super busy at work the past month and also busy on the freelance side of things, i've finally got round to making a small update.

This was an initial design for a flyer to get more people to bring donations to events a local hospice were holding, so people wouldn't have to take their unwanted bits to a charity shop, they could bring them to an event.

Hop Monster Brewing Company - Warlock

Another design for the Hop Monster Brewing Company,
An ale entitled Warlock.

Re-branding and brochure design..

Still a work in progress but i thought i'd do a brief update on what i've been working on at the moment, amongst a lot of other things, but i can't upload those yet as they're in process of going to print. Very excited to see the finished product!

But heres an initial though on another re-brand.

Initial ideas on a re-brand

First thoughts on a re-brand.
Here's what they have at the moment.

They want to stay with the blue colour scheme, and suggested they same colours as the Travel Lodge brand. Heres what i'm initally thinking...

I can't help thinking that this reminds me of something i've already seen.. anyone else?

my websites gone down.. i thought i'd take the opportunity to have a play around a bit with dreamweaver and give it a fresh lick of paint. Plus my shitty host (whom i wouldn't recommend to anyone) wanted to charge me £30 for my second year of hosting with their auto renewal rubbish when my first year was only £10.
Not a chance sunshine..

Anyway here's a few screenshots of my work in progress... (click for larger image)

Thought i'd try and make it a little more shiny than the last one, so have made image rollovers to entertain.

alternative wall graphics for our office

Decided to go for a less 'in yo' face' design for the walls, simple line drawings. With objects that an inside jokes within the office..

So as i mentioned in the previous post and showed you a small part of the wall graphic ideas for our office heres a bigger picture of one of the ideas.

The white out lines are obviously a white board on our wall and a heater....
