It’s been a long time since I last posted a blog update - lately I have been knee deep in work ,or sourcing work..I’ve been busy is the main point here…
As I revealed a few months back, I have rediscovered my graphic and illustrative work, and have added this offer to my list of services. With happy clients and good references, I have started to get regular and ongoing work, some of which have been for clients in other countires.
A family who live out in Spains Asturias, asked me to help them realise a logo design they had roughly skecthed out. They own and run a successful Eco Farm and wished to have a new logo for there revamped image - The brief was to go by the design provided and to add a few social media icons for any promotional use.
I’m usually a less free hand designer when asked for logo and graphical input, however I have not been hired for much freelance work yet so as long as they were happy so was I.
**A matter of starting up - not down to being rubbish ! ** ;)
I tried a few ideas based of the drawing, and the client chose the below design with a few requests towards completion.
Simply exported as transparent PNGs and presto !!
Another snippet of news is that my good friend has also opened his own print shop, which obviously makes it easier for our customers to have TWO photographers and TWO designers who can work together. He has provided me with a good percentage of my prints that have been sold other my time having my place - and now he’s right on my doorstep…hazzar

Latest Work & Happenings
I have had to put a temporary halt to the clothing press, due to a current lack of space and since I’m currently both working and seeking outside work to gather more income. It might be the new year before I can finally get the project off the ground, but as the say “ Good things come to those who wait”.
I will however show off a few bits I’ve created which will be available on www.Displate.com and to purchase from my shop - Did I mention I have an in-house printer….
With the dreaded X-mas rapidly approaching - Work has started on producing newly designed cards and calenders that WON’T have the year on them * not making that mistake again*
and plan to have a bigger xmas stand at the local festive market. Plans to also produce regular VLOGS or video entries are also being considered, though I never considered recording and uploading episodes as I didn’t deem it strictly manditory - Though it can’t hurt surely
I’ll be trying to post more often and will be trying other sites for promtoing and marketing myself.
