So I have been posting photos I have taken as a feature on my homepage for a while now. I initially wanted to post one a month but you know how life gets in the way of grand ideas! Well I now have a new idea for this area of my website and will most likely be phasing out the photos in their current form. So here is a selection of some of the images that my homepage has been graced with.

too busy designing

Sigh of relief. I’m back to the blog! I’ve been away from the blog for a month to the day, so here’s my excuse. I have had the most crazy month of my working life! In between setting up a company, setting up a studio and tidying my new pencilcase… I have been busy designing- flat out.

In the past 3 weeks I have finished the full branding for frut smoothies, done the graphics for an awareness film for hope for justice, done some custom screenprints and album artwork for ‘Starling’ and am now working on a music video for Doug Walker.

So, all that to say… the blog is lacking a bit of attention. For a start, it all turned blue for a while! Not good! So I will be working to get the content and look spot on.

Stay tuned.. and to find out what I had for breakfast,  Follow me on Twitter too.

Now then! I’ve been real busy recently, working on some branding projects for print as well as some digital stuff. Really getting kicks from design for print.  What a joy. I have been researching and gathering some great print examples for inspiration. So here are a few examples of some fantastic packaging solutions. If design is about solving problems and coming up with clever solutions… these are all over it- with some vibrant colours and classy typography thrown in! Packaging with a punch.

I decided to stick up a PDF I made a while ago as a resource to all you graphic designers out there, especially those working for print.
The design shows all the European Standard ‘A’ print sizes… I think it will be a useful tool for you.
You can download the PDF here

Leave a comment if you want me to provide a White background version for printing….

So I’ve put my new portfolio website live now.

A complete overhaul of the site including all new content, a new side-scrolling layout and new adamgf branding. I will be blogging about the new logo separately including sketches of the creation for those interested. You can see all new illustration and graphic design work, as well as branding and identity projects and of course my motion design showreel. My tasty new site works best on a Hi-Gloss Apple screen!! For those of you who are among the 60,000 visitors this year to search for custom tattoo designs, you can see the tattoo design in my new website too! Enjoy!

Any comments about the new site are always welcome.
