A couple of logo designs I put together for a potential freelance client.


The Dark Duck

July 20, 2009

I have a fascination with ducks and have always been a fan of Théophile Steinlen’s art especially “Le Chat Noir” so I decided to create my own version called “Du Canard Sombre” or The Dark Duck. I was pleased with the final result. 🙂

Some illustrator work

I was messing around with illustrator recently and I came up with this using the pencil tool.

Great fun with illustrator

This inspired me to do something a little more extravagant. So I decided to do a pub scene from a single perspective looking around at the people sitting at the table:

My time at TPLD ltd.

July 15, 2009

Right lets start with a few recent images.

Before moving to Glasgow, I worked for a Dundee based company called TPLD ltd. who specialised in educational and informative software. I originally worked for them during my undergraduate degree, and as the only artist on the team I had to produce all the artwork for their tile based game engine.

However that was a long time ago. My more recent stint with them was to produce a pixel art based game for the small piece trust. You can find the game here, just log on and select “biodome” to have a go.

Based around the idea of creating a self sufficient biodome on a terraformed asteroid, the players compete to attract the largest number of settlers to their colony. The better the environment and efficiency of their biodome; the more people they attract.

The actual areas themselves were quite detailed, with my personal favorite being the agricultural area in the top right.

While I was at TPLD, they also called upon my services as a graphic designer. They asked me to come up with some POS and leaflets to advertise their products at a conference. Below are a few examples.

I also helped design the website for their flagship product “Infiniteams” as well as produce the 3d artwork. You can find the website here

The final project I worked on for TPLD was their mini-game, based around the concept of a quiz. Although this already had a set of graphics to go with the game, it did not fit in with the theme of the rest of the mini-games created for the engine. So I reworked the graphics and this is the final result:
