Flavel Comedy Festival 2014

For the past few years, I have worked with the Flavel Theatre in Dartmouth on their marketing material for the annual comedy festival. This year, we created a slightly larger leaflet, to give each act a page of it’s own, as well as the posters and newer updated logo.

I kept the logo the same as before, updated with the numbers and dates… I then used the branding and the information and pictures supplied from each act to design the leaflet, with a page for each act.

Finally I used the pink and yellow boxes, the typewriter typeface and the imagery to design the posters:

Using the branding, the colours, the logo, the blocks of text and the typewriter typeface, I managed to maintain consistency throughout the marketing, despite having different styles of imagery for each act, and whilst making sure each listing and poster for each act does not look the same.

Flavel Comedy Festival

Another collaboration with Rachel from Colourclear Graphic Design – for the Flavel in Dartmouth. Rachel designed the leaflets and posters for the comedy festival in 2012, and they asked me to continue the marketing for 2013. I used the existing branding – bright pink background, with yellow and white boxes and type – very bright, very in your face!

The branding used American typewriter typeface, in both lowercase, uppercase, light, regular and bold, in different sizes to make up justified blocks of text. Very little punctuation – just short and sweet statements – the comedian, date, venue, price and a brief description…

Each act sent it’s own photo for the marketing materials, which we used with the bright colours, blocks and text – for both the leaflets and the posters:

A really fun job – I enjoyed making the elements fit together and work, and designing something upbeat and a little bit mad. You can see this project and more on my website here: www.laurapakoradesign.co.uk. You can find out more about the Flavel Comedy Festival here on the Flavel Website.

Goodbye 2012 and hello 2013…

Well it’s been quite a year! A few new projects, a few new customers…

New projects that I completed this year include…

DCUK:
I continued to update the website, take the product photography, and design the e-shots, and embarked on a complete rebrand which will be launched in the next few months… Below are a few of my favourite shots from last year, and a few of the choice e-mails, which I updated the look and format of during 2012.

DEVON CARERS:
I collaborated with Rachel from Colourclear Graphic Design to work on the new re-brand of Devon Carers Link. They were renaming and rebranding the whole organisation, as well as changing the structure and idea behind the brand. We worked together on the identity and branding, marketing materials, emails, websites, newsletters, posters and more. My first major collaboration – which was fun and really nice to have someone else to bounce ideas off.

We also worked on 2 sub-brands within Devon Carers – Devon Young Carers and Devon Carers Voice – developing a website for both… but more about that at a later date…

CRABSTITCH:
I designed this logo for a friend of mine who was starting an embroidery business in the summer…

DAISY CREMATION URNS:
Throughout the year I have been working on the Daisy Cremation Urns website and brochure, and we relaunched the new website towards the end of last year. I spent a lot of time learning about coding and opencart to get this website right…

FLAVEL:
Another job in collaboration with Rachel from Colourclear Graphic Design – this was a fun job updating the design and information for 2013’s Comedy Festival Leaflet and posters. The templates were similar to the previous year, and we tweaked the design with the new information. (More about this in a future blog post…)

I worked on a personal project based on the Reading Challenge I had set myself the year before, to read 30 books:

Book Review Reading Challenge

Information Design on the books I read in 2011.

I entered a competition to design characters for an alphabet, called “What’s Your Type” by “Oh Momma”, and one of my letters won…

I entered and was shortlisted for the South Devon Business Excellence Awards “Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award”:

And I read and reviewed four different Art and Design books, both for this blog and my other Book Review blog, Information is Beautiful, Graphic Design: A Concise History, How to Design Websites and Creative Inc.

…and that was just the business… in my personal life, I read 50 books, I turned 30, I dyed my hair bright red, I climbed, I sailed, I ran my first marathon and my second half marathon, I sang in a Gilbert and Sullivan musical: Mikado, I bought a boat in a syndicate, we won our first sailing series this Autumn, I watched and enjoyed the Olympics, I went to a street party for the Jubilee, I spent a week in Spain, got married, and spent three weeks in New York and driving around California! Phew! 2013 has a lot to live up too…

I have many plans for Laurapakora Design this year, so watch this space for more… first up, I will be updating my website with new work, and finalising a few projects, including a new website and branding for a False Nail Design company – Skulls and Rubys – which should be launched in the next few weeks.

Happy New Year!
TTFN,
Laura
