Banbury North Signal Box - Project Crossrail

A small team of professionals calling themselves, 'Project Crossrail', wanted to preserve this historic railway structure, so I offered to help.

After long negotiation, it became clear the building could not be saved. But with the help of Chiltern Railways and Network Rail, the team managed to secure a stay of execution for the Signal Box for a month. This enabled them to open the Signal Box for tours. School children, enthusiasts, groups, clubs and members of general public could visit free-of-charge.
The team wanted a booklet to be produced to give to each visitor. I worked alongside the team and Network Rail to a tight deadline, producing a 20-page full colour booklet that told a bit of history about Banbury, the railways and what signalling was all about.

The resulting booklet was very well received and they even got me to pose in the Signal Box with a copy!

Girlguiding to Switzerland

I was approached by Hampshire West Girlguiding to help design a leaflet.

'Our Chalet' in Adelboden, Switzerland, is one of the five World Centres belonging to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. To advertise the opportunity for local Hampshire Guides to visit this special location in 2017, I was asked to create a leaflet that could be distributed to all the guiding section in the County. I called upon my own photographs - that I took whilst in Switzerland the previous year - and worked with Girlguiding UK brand guidelines, I produced an all colour leaflet. The interior had straight forward booking forms and general text information.

National Wagon Preservation Group

I realised the the NWPG had no real unifying brand to tie in their publications and leaflets, so I offered to help.

I took on-board the current design, created a new logo, redrew and reworked the existing leaflets to increase usability, reworked subscription forms and other printed matter and produced a cohesive across-the-board look.
I then supplied them with easy-to-use PDF files for home or professional printing.

BMX/Invader Graphics

I was approached by an old graffiti friend who is involved in the retro BMX scene. He wanted a design for stickers and T-shirts that revolved around the Space Invaders theme to tie in with the group he is involved with, the Midland BMX Massive. There was a big meet due and he wanted some advertising stickers, so I researched the original cabinet artwork for the Space Invader game and created suitable graphics and even tracked down the original font.

On the left, above, is the original artwork I sent to him and his only alteration was the addition of the text below and the magenta coloured date added in a 'hi-score' style.
