Skinny Coffee Club (Holland and Barrett Trial)

The Half Day Trial

Skinny coffee club is a product created to be sold in branches of Holland and Barrett, it is a weight loses supliment in the form of coffee.

A couplpe of weeks ago i participated in a stage of interviews to join the design and marketing team at Holland and barret, as a Graphic Designer.

in the end i got down to the final two candidates and was asked to come in for a half day working trial, i got to meet the team and experience how they work.

The task to create some promotional designs for the Skinny Coffee Club brand, a set of window displays and some online banners.

I based my campaign on the concept of a weighing scales where the units of measurement were replaced with times of the day, and the needle pointing towards the time of day a person would/should consume the brand.

After, i left the half day session with my head held high, feeling very proud to have even been given the chance to particpate in this exercise.

I am very greatful that holland and Barrett gave me this opportunity and feel i have built a bond with the team, i hope to hear many things from them in the future.

Map, maps and more maps (part 1)

A while ago the go to response for "what would you like as your wall mural?" was "A MAP!!".

we must have resourced, processed and intalled around 15 wall instalations to do with various maps.

Old maps, new maps, maps of the world, satalite images and ancient drawings.

This image is a title piece for a range of old and new maps that were placed around the hallways at the Tudor Grange Academy in Solihull.

The Project detailed the growth of the district of solihull (near Birmingham) and encouraged pupils to aim to expand it further in the future.

This Image is from 1900, in the set there are images from 1850, 1945 all the way up to 2000.

In all images the school is pointed out, this helps the students reference where they currently are.
and also helps them discover where other landmarks are, including their homes and the town centre.

This image and more can be found on my Dribbble page here

How wit and humour make for strong graphic design ideas

_It goes without saying that graphic design isn’t graphic design without an idea. Whether it's ideas that simplify, sell or seduce, graphic design work has a purpose; and a new book by Steven Heller and Gail Anderson seeks to explain “some of the key elements of good design” in clear, accessible language with a wealth of visual examples._

Here you will find a selection of works that both me a the TGdesign team have done over the past couple of years.

We are TG Design: Incipiently Lawrence Morgan flag shipped TG Design in producing bespoke educational design via publications, installations and digital media dedicated to captivating the imagination of students and teachers alike. Amongst all the aim was to provide a thriving atmosphere, which would inspire students to learn.

The young but knowledgeable Liam Mann joined the team shortly after as the dedicated web developer for TG Design. This enabled TG Design to have a big impact online creating numerous websites and teaching & learning platforms across all the academies and the trust.

The success of Tudor Grange Academies meant expansion of the Academy brand was a natural progression; this resulted in taking on more academy schools.

Fast Forward 2014 - After establishing TG Design several years ago under Tudor Grange Academies Trust, the department had grown capability and creativity considerably. Recent Graphic Design & Multimedia Graduates George Moss and Andrew Heffernan joined the team to expand the department to four to keep up with the positive demand.

Today we offer creative design solutions to almost every avenue from web to print. Our distinctive lateral way of thinking allows us to capture the essence of each given brief. We then portray in a fresh and exciting way to create memorable, high-impact formulas.

In 2015, there has been a big push on classroom design/installations. TG Design revamped the History classrooms in Worcester, Humanities & English in Redditch and the Maths classrooms in Solihull. Each room designed to briefs relating to topics the students are studying. The installations make a huge impact, which is reflected by the demand!

TG Design is dedicated to the innovation of design within Teaching environments, and that makes us excited.

enjoy.
