John Reynolds RIP

There has been far too many RIP posts on this page. It's awful to post another one. John was the man behind most of the posts on this site. I worked with him and company from 2001 to 2017. So much work. Massive hole in the Irish music scene. Very sad.

Conway Savage R.I.P.

Sad to hear about the death of former Bad Seeds member Conway Savage.
Here's a post from 2009.

Neon Lights 2018


The basic poster for this year's Neon Lights Festival in Singapore. As ever Steve did the logo and the key elements and with the promoter's input I turned it into a workable piece. Lot of fun working on this. It is more flexible than the 2016 art, not quite a complicated as it looks.
We spent a week or two getting the whole text presentation right. Something that ended with a funny email exchange with Declan, the promoter. I thought I'd nailed this with some fonts suggested my Steve but something wasn't right. Finally Dec sends over a screenshot with some fonts he fancied for the job. Helvetica Bold. Love it.

Le Cheile (final)


Second post about the Le Chéile festival. This time I'm posting the final music line up art

Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival

Programme for the Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival. This is a 4 page two sided DL. Unusual job in that there was nobody telling me what to do. I set my own rules for this. Use the existing festival brand, make it lively, clear, readable, and have some fun with it. I wanted it to be something people could pour over. There's lots of funny illustrations and jokes in there.

Toots & The Maytals


Yet another poster for Toots & The Maytals. For this one I took a look at what they were doing for their current world tour and just did a version of it.

Deadmau5


Poster for Deadmau5 coming to Dublin later this year. Bit of a tough birth on this one. I think this is the fifth version.

Shibley Righton

Logo refresh for Canadian barristers.

The Lost Brothers Summer Tour 2018


Tour poster for The Lost Brothers. This is the summer 2018 tour with the first few dates sold out.

Le Chéile



I got asked to design the posters etc for this year's Le Chéile festival. The festival logos have been in place for years so I kept those in place. I was waiting for a job where I could use this font, Eagle. This is an early poster so I left plenty of space to expand.

The Middle Ages - single 3


The cover for the third single by The Middle Ages. Some fairly basic photoshop work going on here which could have been worked up way more. Though it is fine the way it is. The song Titanic talks about the raising of the ship. The peeling paintwork on the raised boat reveals The Middle Ages' logo, or something like that!

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith


Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith making an Irish debut in The Sugar Club. Kaitlyn provided the great image. This version with the press quotes and the ticket details CTA is way messy. A follow up version was never needed though as this gig sold out.
