Getting back into painting...
Recently I've really enjoyed getting back into painting watercolours. It started when I was imagining a packaging design for a wine brand I'd made up and I painted a lobster, of all things. That has now spiralled onto me painting all sorts of different animals and really having fun with it. Below are some of the recent ones I have done; cows sticking their tongues out and portraits of pets for friends.
Doing mostly graphic design, it is easy to forget why you loved art in the first place and get bogged down with just the digital work. But now, I think it is important to keep up the hand-made creativity and that will hopefully show across the rest of my work next year.

McDonald's new look...
Turner and Duckworth design studio in San Fransisco, have been working hard to create a new visual identity for McDonalds. While still harnessing the branding that we already know and love. The new look includes posters, paper bags, cups, bus stop advertisements, lorry artwork, van artwork, wifi symbols, clothing, loyalty cards and much more. The redesign features a new font developed with Dalton Maag called Speedee, which comes in three weights. As the branding essentially needs to communicate across the world, covering 120 countries and 35,000 restaurants. They focussed on the famous golden arches of the logo and the recognisable gold and red colour-scheme.
