Alun Lewis – a Welsh poet born in Cwmaman, near Aberdare in South Wales, was one of, if not the, preeminent poet of the Second World War. 2015 saw the centenary of his birth and a committee was formed to organise commemorative and celebratory events throughout the year. I was part of the committee and worked on the branding for the centenary which consisted of Alun Lewis’ signature along with an original portrait I drew. All the funding requested was not secured, however a large number of events such as an exhibition attended by the Queen during the Presentation of the Colours parade for the Royal Welsh at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, talks and exhibition at Aberdare library and talks and presentations at the Hay Festival, Hay on Wye. I also created a mural at the Lewis School in Pengham where Lewis once taught.

The Firing Line Museum of the Welsh Soldier, based in Cardiff Castle, needed both a museum guidebook and a family trail for the museum. The guide needed to provide basic information and assist people as they made their way around the museum. The family trail would help children find their way around the exhibitions whilst at the same time give them educational material such as colouring in and questions that related to the displays.
Budget restrictions meant that producing two publications would not be possible so the museum guide / family trail attempted to answer both needs using copy and format that would appeal to all age groups as well as containing a number of items, such as the colouring in, to encourage participation from the younger audience. Added to this was the need to work towards a new brand / look for the museum who’s publications had become increasingly fragmented with regard to image and creative approach.
The finished publication contains branding elements that will be transferred across all future work as well as illustrations, including character design, all produced by Petersens Design.
Spec: 16pp A5 – self covered – uncoated 190gsm stock – 4 colour process throughout.

Gorwel – a Welsh word that translates as Horizon. Gorwel is The Welsh Foundation for Innovation in Public Affairs. A new independent non-party political think tank for Wales. They wanted a brand identity that was contemporary but had a connection to the origins of Wales and Welsh culture. The semi circle graphic represents the horizon and the globe and the interconnecting, almost concentric circles, emphasise these same symbolism. The sun like shape highlights the concept of idea and thought whilst at the same time the linking circles are a reference to culturally relevant patterns.
JEKS Associates – A newly established Project Management company approached us for a simple but effective brand identity. A logo design that used the name of the company was what they were after. They were more than happy with the arrow icon that emerged form the letters of their company name. It tied in nicely with the aims and ambitions they have for the company.
