Guardian-Paper-G2-Front-Cover

The Hip Hop Chip Shop in the Guardian

Today was a proud day. Today was the day a logo I designed appeared on the front cover of the Guardian’s G2 supplement. Needless to say I popped out and bought a copy, and will be framing it and hanging it on the wall of the Instadesign studio. You can read the article here.

Of course, I can’t take the limelight here – it’s Jonathan ‘Ozzie’ Oswald’s hard work and perseverance that has got him and his brand into a national newspaper – but there is something quite heartwarming about having been a part of that. I’m really proud to be part of the amazing journey The Hip Hop Chip Shop is on, and can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner for them… they are clearly going plaices.

Early 90s Style Music Video for Modern Medicine

Modern Medicine – (I Feel Like) A Million Quid from instadesign on Vimeo.

I had a huge amount of fun making this early 90s style music video, from imagining the dodgy Channel 9 style low budget European TV show ‘Muzik Time!!’ and coming up with ridiculously cheesy graphics, to painstakingly mimicking the effect of an old VHS tape that’s been recorded over a few times. Credit to Luke Glover for shooting the video and Pete Cannon for producing the track.

Logo for Pete Cannon

Pete Cannon is a producer and DJ who is in the process of skyrocketing to fame. The styles of music he is involved with are very varied, so he wanted a logo that didn’t fit in to any one of the visual languages associated with certain genres, but stood on it’s own, simple, clean and understated.

Pete is a friend as well as a client, and as such I’d like to encourage you to have yourself a little listen to some of his spectacularly good music below:

Update: I wasn’t wrong when I said Pete was skyrocketing to fame… have you heard of Rizzle Kicks? Yeah, thought you might have – well Pete has produced a couple of tracks from their new album, one of which, Lost Generation, is currently charting! Here’s the video:
