Exciting news! Today I have launched a new sub-section to my work base HLB Media. As you will have seen from previous blog posts and tweets I have started working more within the videography world. It’s something that’s developed from doing it in my day job over the last 6 months, I’ve learnt so much and have really enjoyed putting my new-found skills into action!
HLB Media is a developing area of work and I am looking forward to showing you what I have been doing. Keep checking back to the new site, videos will be posted soon!
I am currently working in collaboration with Obsidian Entertainment. If you are interested in working with us on a video project please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
I decided it was time to get myself a proper logo. Sarah at Loyal Designs said she would come up with a few font ideas and we would develop it once we had a feel for what I liked. There were two that stood out for me but one in particular that I was drawn to every time. There were a couple of little tweaks that needed to be done to make it ‘feel’ just right for me but Sarah was great, making the smallest of adjustments. I hope you guys like it as much as I do 🙂
A few weeks ago a previous colleague of mine contacted me asking if I’d be interested in doing some photos for her new website. Sarah and I both used to work for the same design company, she is now set up on her own and has just launched loyaldesigns.co.uk
We met up to take some images of a local company, Brunettes in Swindon she had produced logos and artwork for. The ladies at the salon were very accommodating, we spent about 15 mins photographing all of Sarah’s work that featured in store; everything from the appointment cards to the logo on the mirrors and the window.
We sat in a coffee shop caught up and went over the product shots she needed of her wedding invites. Sarah offers an exclusive wedding design service and needed product shots of some of her previous designs including order of service, table placement cards and of course invitations. We discussed the composition of some of the shots and where the images would be used on her site.
It’s been a while since I’ve done product shots having specialised in doing photography of music and extreme sports for so many years but it was great to do and was great to catch up with Sarah! She is an awesome designer and amazing to work with. Check out her website for more on what she does and to have a look at the images I took!
I decided I needed some new business cards to go with my site. I have used Moo.com before and know they offer a great service. When you cover different types of events you need different cards to suit, right? That’s why I love these cards so much.
