Business Card Pour Moi

After looking at many creative and unusual business cards I have decided I want to use key elements from the 5 images below to represent me in my business card:

Handmade, thread.

Sleek, simple, elegant, sophisticated, high end.

Emobossing (print finishes) and simple design


Experimentation with materials.

D&AD - Poster Positioning

The lecture will be held at the Rose Bowl Leeds Met building. The unique construction of the building could influence my poster design. There are a lot of geometrical lines and shapes internally and externally. Because the poster is purely advertising the lecture are the Rose Bowl it can be very personal to the building. It therefore needs to be, geometrical, modern, minimal and fresh looking.

D&AD - Identity

Existing D&AD posters show alot of bold and block colours.

The poster I create should stand out against the place it is positioned in.

D&AD - Typical Yorkshire

D&AD - Yorkshire Accent

Yorkshire Day saw Arriva reveal the top ten Yorkshire sayings as nominated by bus users across the county.

The sayings were launched at Batley Mill on Saturday, 1st August along with two of the 17 new buses being introduced into service.

We had originally appealed for suggestions to preserve the region’s heritage by displaying the top ten Yorkshire sayings on our fleet of new buses.

The activity aimed to showcase the wit and wisdom of Yorkshire by using our fleet of 17 brand new buses being intoduced into services in Dewsbury, Batley, Birstall and Bradford, an investment of over £2million.

The top ten sayings were:

Sit thissen dahn an' tell me abaht it

See all, 'ear all, say nowt. Eat all, sup all,
pay nowt. An' if th'ivver does owt for
nowt, allus do it for thissen

*Ee, by gum

Tha’ can allus tell a Yorkshireman,
but tha’ can’t tell ‘im much

Well, Ah'll go to t’foot of ahr stairs

It’s neither nowt nor summat

Put t'wood in t‘oil

Wheere ther’s muck, ther’s brass

*'Ey up

*An' Ah'll tell thi that fer nowt

My favorite sayings (*) 

Fancy a cuppa?

Fancy a brew?

Cheers love
