90Ten Healthcare: rebrand, award-winning website and digital marketing


90Ten are an established, award-winning healthcare communications agency, and a creative, dynamic, thoroughly nice bunch. Having worked with them consistently on client projects over the last year, I was delighted to be asked to contribute to their rebrand. This began with a total revamp of the logo, and extended throughout stationery, presentation templates, and most notably their website. The brand focuses on people; both those on the receiving end of healthcare, and also those at 90Ten itself, who are all depicted with video profiles.

Website and branding for The Northernettes


The Northernettes are a fantastic girl band formed from three hugely talented performers who all appeared individually on BBC's The Voice UK. Georgia Harrup, Katie Benbow and Sophie May Williams are united not only by great vocals, but a love for classic pop and R&B, and vintage clothes. Inspired equally by the likes of Ray Charles, Etta James, David Bowie and Boy George, they're a perfect mix of stylishly retro and bang up-to-date.

The logo and website aim to embody that blend, with a typeface inspired by 50s and 60s beatnik styling, weathered textures and brightly coloured photography. Various incidental graphics are reminiscent of old Blue Note album sleeves or classic music venues. The site is of course responsive, and combines all the key visual information on the scrolling front page, with more in-depth material to be found within. See the site here.

DreamWorks Distribution screening room website


Produced while on an extended freelance contract with DreamWorks Animation in London, the screening room is a website displaying a huge number of TV properties owned by DreamWorks to potential licensees. The site was designed to reflect the growing brand of the DreamWorks Asia television network and uses existing brand identity elements. I produced the feature graphics for the site using some of the outstanding visual assets in the DreamWorks Animation library.

This is a secure site, with access by password only beyond the home page, with the site build by video and display specialists i2i Media.
