“Tortex guitar picks are an iconic part of the fabric of rock n’ roll, like a pair of filthy leather pants and a snotty disposition. To mark Tortex’s 30th anniversary, the in-house creative department at Dunlop spotlighted the ubiquity of the brightly colored picks in the campaign “It’s More Than a Pick,” bringing together a packaging revamp and print and online pushes.
The packaging was redesigned to focus on the familiar Tortex color coding which revolutionized the industry in 1981, making them the first guitar picks to use color to denote pick gauge (thickness). The desire to “give back” to diehard Tortex users led the creative team to the idea of printing the header card on vinyl rather than paper and adding a kiss-cut to the dieline around the Tortex logo. The result? A vinyl sticker for every Tortex devotee to slap on their guitar case, guitar, amp, or groupie’s ass. Also, an infographic was designed to educate players about which Tortex picks their idols use, and which was right for their own playing style. In print, 2 page spreads for a single guitar pick were run internationally- a first in the industry.”

“I designed this piece as a Christmas present for my girlfriend. The packaging was created from one piece of cardboard and stitched together with a thread. No glue used at all.
The artwork was inspired by our favorite song ‘The Trapeze Swinger’. In the last couple of lines Sam Beam describes a scene with a monkey, a man, a marching band, an angel kissing on a sinner… and so on.”

“Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping, and the playing cards were finally born. It wasn’t easy. theory11 made the bronze paper from scratch in order to perfectly print the ink that covers its surface in 19th century Victorian machinery. The boldly stamped, debossed elements cast shadows to create a perspective of depth and weight.”

“I created the logo artwork and packaging design for DrNo Effects, a range of vintage guitar effect pedals. It has been an absolute pleasure to work on this job as I always love to mix graphic design, custom lettering and illustration.
This project had all of these elements. I started by doing rough sketches, and created six different vintage styles, one for each guitar effect. Within each artwork, I tried to reflect the sound and style of the effect. I created custom letters to make,
every effect is unique and special. Finally, I placed the sketches in Illustrator, traced them and added colour.”

“DVD packaging for Pago de los Capellanes, a special winery from Spain. It was a quite simple idea, but a dificult work through process. The sun comes out at Pago de los Capellanes vineyards.”

“Jacqui Oakley was commissioned to produce some cover artwork for Two Crown King’s debut EP & we couldn’t pass up the chance to design a home for her astounding lion painting. We created a bright & in-your-face design for the the 12″ & CD gatefold packaging, with colours & textures suggested by elements of Jacqui’s piece. We’re happy to have given TCK a visual identity that they can run with while promoting the record.”

“This interactive CD package was designed for Jive Talk’s latest album ’123 Jump!’. To enhance fans’ experience with the band, we created an online animated experience using Augmented Reality and Quick Response codes.
Fold the CD case to form the stage and scan the AR code to start the band’s “live” animated performance. Watch the animated Jive Talk members perform their title track, “123 Jump!”.
The inner booklet shows each of the four band members. Scan the QR markers, place your Smart Phone over the band members’ mouths and watch the guys sing their music! Try experimenting with the music by scanning the band members at different times to remix the song, or break the song down and listen to each member individually.”
