Christchurch Fringe Festival 2014

Christchurch Fringe Festival 2014

The clients required a poster to promote their event and also a fold-out programme to outline events for this entertainment extravaganza. The aim was for it to be a eye catching and entertaining design.

I was inspired by images and photographs that the team had already used including their dog and "F Girl". They wanted some charms, to clearly display the sponsers and entertainers, and the rest was history.

Legacy Building

This logo design is for a new building company; Legacy Building. 


The client came to me with a clear design that he wanted digitised and perfected. 


He was after a simple, clean cut logo that can be versatile for a range of uses, logo, business card, website, work vehicles and clothing. 


A modern, yet classic design to fit in with his business identity.


The aim was black and white, with the option to add colour at a later date if wanted, and the client was also provided with a couple versions of the logo, with wording inside the circle and wording outside the logo to fit in with the versatility of the design. 



The aim of this project was for the drummer - Rosanne Burdett to create three musical medleys under the project name Rosieglow. These medleys were covers from the bands: Shapeshifter, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Shihad.

My part in this project was to help refine the Rosieglow logo. Rosanne wanted one main logo to represent her using the idea of the name inside a circle. I developed this to represent her further by adding the white circle to represent a bass drum. We added the bird to represent her signature drums that feature this bird and others on it. For each medley made, Rosanne wanted something in the logo to represent the original musicians of the songs featured in the medleys; so the band’s logos were incorporated, replacing the drum hole in the main logo and different colours were used as background to represent each band.

I also took photographs of Rosanne playing the drums whilst recording these medleys.

The photographs and logos were to be used on the Rosieglow Facebook and Twitter pages, You Tube, and SoundCloud.

Debbie Porter Photography

The aim of this logo design was to create an identity for commercial and wedding photography when displaying photography online.


​The logo was shaped around something different from the typical photography logos that usually are based around the circular shape of a camera lens or around a camera shutter. I wanted to bring a bit of fun and life into the logo that somewhat speaks more of the photos that I take rather than the tool that I am using to do so.


The inspiration for the logo was taken from a piece of art made by Lindsey Jane, which is a D for Debbie made from buttons and feather embellishments. Therefore, the red D with a feather was used as the logo. 


The font beneath the image was to be kept simple to make this design fun yet have a level of sophistication.

The logo can be chopped and changed for different photos, while still maintaining the same feel and identity, such as putting the D within a circle, or changing the writing and images individual proportions so that they may be larger or smaller, to completely separating the image from the writing and placing somewhere else in the photograph, or taking it out of the photograph and simply using the writing or vice versa.



Designs of an Eclectique Heart

The aim of the design was to assist in creating a brand identity for Designs of an Eclectique Heart. The brief was for the logo to be fun, yet sophisticated, and have somewhat of a timeless feel.

It is a revamp of the old logo – done to bring the logo into a current design. The old logo featured the same flowers (poppies) - which have been modified to carry this element into the new logo.

The Designs of an Eclectique Heart logo can be chopped and changed for different programs and use, while still maintaining the same feel and identity; an example of this is the transition of the business card to the header of the website.

The website design is to showcase a portfolio of work under this brand, and continuing this into social media such as Facebook. The logo has also been used at this point for Pinterest, Felt, Society 6, Trademe and Etsy, with the format being changed where necessary to fit in with sizing specifications and my judgments for the best fit for the logo.
