Introduction

The Good The Bad Rugby have sent me a few projects for their social media this week.

One being a post for one of the players on the podcast — Ronan O’Gara. Considering how big a player he was i really wanted to create something cool for him.

They also asked me to create a nice graphic for a Lions team selection — nothing too fancy just something that works and looks cool.

Introduction

Earlier in the week DoubleTake secured The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow as a client. The brief was to create an animation that will be projected onto the Hotel on the 26th of April.

The Animation had to show the history of the hotel and meet the businesses value of “coming together”.

Process

The first part of my role in helping, is cutting out the photos required, then working on the creative itself.

I have been tasked with creating the opening scene on photoshop — basing it off an old train ticket from the station.

Title Slide created by me.

Feedback

Overall I’m really pleased with this, I kept to the brief ad created an interesting visual which I can’t wait to see projected.

The plan is, that ill shadow the other designers and learn more After Effects through that .

Introduction

This week was a bit different as I was on site with DoubleTake, shooting an advert for visit Scotland.

The brief was to show Scotland as a place where Big Conferences, such as, TED talks can happen and be successful.

Unfortunately i wasn't really allowed to take photos and with the directors and everything else going on i wasn't feeling too confident to ask as everyone was very busy.

Once the advert has been published, I'll add it to this blog.

Feedback

After the positive experience of the Rangers job application I decided to apply for some more roles that i’ve seen around.

One of the jobs I saw was the Scottish FA looking for illustrators for the EURO squad announcement.

Therefore, some practise drawing illustrations is needed.

Introduction

This week I was given confirmation that I am in the final 3 for the Rangers Graphic Design role.

They sent an email with a brief and images for me to use.

The brief was to create Social media branding for the MyGers fan subscription, showing a range of my work and in-situ mock ups, all well presented.

Introduction

Rangers wanted projections showing different images of their league win, placed throughout Glasgow on the day that it was announced they won the title.

I was given the task of creating a banner that would be projected at the Riverside museum in Glasgow.

The brief needed to show fans, players, manager and just show celebrations and energy throughout the edit.

Process

With this Graphic I was inspired by the image of the fans and the red smoke coming from them looking similar to the red and black of the players socks.

The players are all visible and the emotions can be seen on them all.
