Logotype for DJ duo Disco Mordisco based in Granada, Spain.

Inspired by a modern take on the 80’s Miami disco vibe, this logo is energetic just like their music. Check out Disco Mordisco on soundcloud.

Lesonic logo for a future DJ project based in the UK. Rolling brush script which would look at home sitting above an image of a girl in leg warmers on a VHS case. Shown in single colour B&W.

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.

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 simple black and white outlines.

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.

Logo design for Sunnydaze (Facebook Link) - A Jazz, Funk and Jam band. 

Throwback style script with restraint on the ligatures.

I have always loved the cheesy excess that was a major part of the 1980s typography.
 
Over the last few months I have pushed myself to recreate a lot of these hand drawn effects using photoshop, aiming for a mixture of authenticity and improvement on the original ideas.
 
Some of these were used, some never made the cut and some were just for fun.

MTV - Self initiated typographic illustration. Finishing up a series of 1980s inspired retro pieces, I had to reference MTV somewhere.
Pretty stoked with how this one turned out.

'Break The Ice' retro inspired typographic piece, just for fun. 1980's Miami? Freestyle BMX? John Farnham?

Disco Volante - A late 70’s/early 80’s inspired typographic piece. I wanted to work with some gold and badly dated fonts to create something that could look straight off an LP record cover.
