Regis Motor Co. Logo & Business Card


Created for my Uncle, Andy Handson who was after a brand identity for his classic car business. I was inspired by 1920s/30s signage, with my Uncle after a retro theme, and I gave it a bit of a contemporary twist.

HodgesMusic.com Logo

Created for David Hodges, and his HodgesMusic brand.

Hodges asked me to update his logo and have it feature him as a caricature, or at least the top half of his head peering over the website name. Oh yea, and he had to be wearing headphones… he is a musician after all.
