Final chosen logo for the second series of Australian action/comedy TV series 'Danger 5'. The new series, features a change in decade, to the 80s and the team required a period correct logo. The obvious choice shown here, full of bevels, airbrush look chrome and a lively brush script.
Personally can’t wait for this new series. Anything inspired by the 80s is of course awesome and these guys will pull it off perfectly. For anyone unfamiliar you can check the first 60s inspired series on youtube.
'The Silver Ball' typography for Harlot in San Fransisco. Shown here in closeup. Referencing Studio 54, early 1980’s New York Glam. Excessive use of light flares and the obvious use of Avant Garde as the secondary font keep the 70s disco hangover alive in this one.

Custom logotype for DJ Juxtapose (soundcloud link). Referencing the classic logos of early video games and 80’s movies but with the perspective adding a slight bit of modern evolution. Shown here in full colour version with added halftone effects, for that faded Nintendo Power magazine tip.

Logo for HKArmys upcoming ‘Ride or Collide’ series. The brief called for a logo that was illustrative, clean, modern and still incorporating the existing HKArmy logo and symbol. Minimal adornments and simple stroke weights follow the current stripped back trend in design. Check out a teaser trailer, featuring the logo here.
Full colour logo for Slovenian DJ Sare Havlicek. With a music style described as Future Disco, we decided on a new take on my previous Polyester Afros typographic style. Early 80s excessiveness, with a bad hangover from the disco era. You can check out his music on soundcloud.

Sion logo, for UK based DJ. 1980s brush script inspired with slight distressing and half tone effects.
Logo for a DJ/producer with a Miami inspired pink/blue, 1980s neon treatment. The holy grail of 80s typography - brush script AND chrome combined in the one legible (just) logo.
'Denial' packaging design for Persona Non Grata. Image, die cuts and final mock up. Hinting at 1980's toy blister packs with the rounded die cut and bright neon graphics.
'Teak&Wool' logo for an upcoming Mid Century Modern inspired project. Modern but with obvious ties to the designs of the era, with a bulging square outline and a modified serif font used.
