Iron Solutions – Website & Business Card Design

This is a project that I had to design a logo, business cards and a site for. Unfortunately near completion, the business went under and so no longer needed the work I had created, but I still use it in my portfolio as an example of my skills as well as my ability to listen to my client and adapt their needs. My friend, the client, said they wanted branding that represented structure, strength and profession. They wanted a simple colour scheme, focused on the blacks and greys with a hint of blue or gold/orange.

They didn’t want something that looked too ‘clinical’, but they did want something that was professional, simple to navigate and modern. My clients actually loved my designs from the initial ideas to the final stages! On the Home Page there is a revolving banner that holds a summary of some of the main areas of the business and underneath were 3 pictures and links to other areas. There is a News Page with related articles and their Twitter feed, as well as Contact Page. I designed the site itself in Photoshop, which allowed me to match the red colour and tone of black exactly to the existing logo. I wanted to ensure that …


Ixion Blog Writing & Pen Design

As part of my position at Ixion, I decided to write regular blog articles on my experience as a first-time employee. As I was taken on through a Government scheme, I often spoke about employment in politics, sharing my thoughts on how issues such as the rising numbers of young people who leave university and can’t get work and the lack of positions available. My blog become so popular that Nick Clegg actually read it! I’ve included just a few of the images below. I formatted, updated and styled the entries with both HTML and CSS. The other young people taken on through the Future Jobs Fund said that they found my blog really interesting and comforting and as a great way to express the need for more experience-based positions for those seeking a career in the creative industries. This was the first time I had actually attempted to write a blog, and it lead to me eventually starting me own! I loved expressing myself and my opinions, sharing information and ideas that would hopefully …
