Philip Simpson Design Business Cards!

They’ve arrived. I should of had my own business cards a long time ago, very overdue and its been a long wait through time of trying to perfect design but now they’re finally here and looking fantastic. One step closer to establishing myself or as a freelancer designer. A moment in history, the first ever person to receive one of my business cards was 10 month old Aleksia Grace Simpson who was overjoyed with her uncles new business card and she decided she’d try eating it. Theyre sadly not edible tho :/  but in time to come i might work on that idea!

Winter Ball Invite

One of my recent projects has been designing an invitation to a Winter Ball held in Grimsby. I really enjoyed playing about with the typography on this one and found a nice typeface that suited the “Winter Themed” invite well. The texture also was fun in adding frosty-like gradients and the snowflake effects. The whole feel of the invite i hope gives off like a glistening, snowy, icy, frosty just generally winter effect. With some elegance and classy to it aswell.

Business Card Sent For Print

So its final. Today my design for a business card has been sent to the printers. There is some visuals above of how its going to look. Hopefully ill be able to use these and expand on design projects with various clients. 

New Business Card Design (Hopefully Final) 

So my blog has shown a few variety’s of business card design but now i don’t think i will be designing anymore as i comfortable with the way this one looks. The typographic style that displays my name is my visual identity and can also be seen on my website, 

Stay Tuned!

  • I have not used my design blog in a long time but i am making progression on my design side and there will be upcoming work on here to look at real soon. Just hoping to keep my design blog more alive than it currently is.

New Business Card Idea!

A quick idea for a business card i had yesterday. The little playmobil figure in the image represents me.

The finished product of Planet Donut Website
As you can well see, ive been working recently on a project that is to create a Logo and Homepage for a fictional Doughnut shop in Grimsby. And after many developments here it finally is. It has been really fun working on this latest project and ive kept my belly full aswell with many of the Doughnut’s seen in the design.

Planet Donut Logo with Minor Changes
So recently i added on my blog a logo i was designing for a fictional doughnut shop. This is the same logo with slight changes to it. I have used gradients from the same colours and also changed and removed anchor points to make it look that little more aesthetic.

Creative C.V
So i thought recently id give another go at trying to make yet another Creative C.V and this time i think this one looks better and could help me more for roles as a designer in 2012. I’ll be sending this one out to many design agency’s in hope of any success. Feedback much appreciated and if you find my work inspiring, start following my blog and feel free to ask any questions.

Recycled Photos (London)

So these two photo’s have been recycled and are edit’s of some photo’s i took in Camden, London last year. They have turned out not the way i wanted with an incorrect light balance, but edited they look delicious. I am in the design mindset of thinking they would both look grand if i was to use them in a design and thats how imagine these thing’s all the time. Nothing should go to waste.

Planet Donut!
So today i have rustled up a brand new idea for a logo for a fictional doughnut shop. The summary of this project is to make a website for a fictional doughnut shop that will attract more visitors to the store. I am to design the name, logo, layouts and a homepage that will make mouths water. The whole project is set out for a chance to become a front end web designer in Grimsby (also my hometown) so im hoping ill do well with this and get some employment in the creative and graphic art industry.
