As a logo and brand identity designer, it still never ceases to amaze me how many people think that logo design is a 10 minute job, usually involving “putting some text up in a nice font with a little graphic”.
Recently I was contacted by Mr. Robin Howarth of Thelwall Cars to develop a unique image for his new taxi firm.
Well, it’s been a few months since my last post about fonts and typefaces and since then I’ve done a lot more exploring into the vast world of typefaces and returned with some very interesting finds, particularly when it comes to screen-ready display fonts.
This GUI Design I produced is a lot less radical than my SHI10 Linux Interface Suite, but still uses some of the more advance features capable in the GTK Murrine Engine.

Recently, I was approached by Zeitgeist developer Seif Lofty about developing a new logo design and brand for the Zeitgeist Project – a “service which logs the user’s activities and events, anywhere from files opened to websites visited and conversations.

Regular readers of this site will remember a few months back when I made a post entitled Deconstructing Nautilus and Rebuilding It Better. It proved to be rather… controversial. Some of you hated my redesign proposals, others loved it. Forward a couple of months later and some rather clever man has took my mine and DanRabbit’s Nautilus dreams and made them reality, or as near as we can currently get.
New logo design and brand I produced for Marianne’s Attic – a new business specialising in selling handmade, vintage, upcycled and unusual accesories and children’s clothes and toys, as well as products for adults like keyrings made from scraps and cutouts from reclaimed books.
