Late January 2013 I bumped into another ex-VCCP’er (Here’s a link to VCCP) who was now working at Radley Yelder. They do more than few Annual Reports each year. They are also a .NET house. This was an opportunity to brush off my C# skills and get involved in a project with some substance after doing the ad agency thing for so long.
Got a call from an old friend before Christmas. He moved to Stockholm and is now managing the rebuild of a website for European Bartender School. They had a really great idea of promoting the schools in Europe an beyond (Thailand anyone?) with passport style stamps. Encouraging students to travel and holiday while they learn
2013 is all about 21 day challenges. Each month has a goal to do something every day for 21 days. In January I did a Treehouse badge a day. For February the goal was to draw a cute animal every day. Here are the results!
iframe, jQuery and Raphaël js.
In November 2012 I left an amazing bunch of people and a comfortable job at VCCP to start freelancing. Another ex-VCCP’er Sarah Bainbridge said come and help out at TBG Digital. They were busy building Facebook pages in the run up to Christmas.
This is the second in my series of Alphabet Animals. It plays on the well known saying, “Like a bull in a China shop!”, but with a twist. You can see the first one for ‘A’ here.
Before Niggles & Narks, in 2009, VCCP created an interim look and feel for O2’s broadband offering. This was fairly much a scribbly line drawing of a house with an equally scribbly headline. O2 wanted to show their broadband deals in-store, so I was teamed with a freelance Copywriter (Hi Dianne :-)), and we went about creating a sequence of screens for 19" touchscreens. Expanding and animating this simple identity.
In 2011 I draw a little bat asleep on pumpkin for Halloween. One year on I thought I’d add it here :-). I only used flat colour and no outlines. It’s a style I will be using more of in the future. Simple, clean shapes that lean towards being a bit geometric. Keeping it super cute. An animal and a prop.
The YouTube Masthead is the large expandable banner on their homepage. Advertisers are encouraged to use YouTube video content using Doubleclick’s YTPlayer component. The launch of O2 Priority Sports showcases VCCP’s beautiful TV ad filling the whole 970 x 500 pixel space.
