New Website

While I’ve had the domain for about five years now, and been working solely under that banner for over three, it took me until last month to get a new, wholly work based website up and online.

I saw a local website design company employ a third party to build their site about a year ago and admit I kind of scoffed at it at the time. Given the time its taken me to get to this stage, perhaps that might in fact not have been a completely bad idea after all.

The combination of wanting to get things completely and absolutely right along with regular interruptions from more urgent (and paid) work and also the fact I wanted to cover both the Illustration side of the work I do, and the Website Design side while also outlining some of the other creative services and solutions projects have called upon in a way that, hopefully, makes sense and is easy to navigate.

It is a relatively simple and straightforward site at this stage, with several featured projects on the home page and pages detailing the illustration and web work I do – Do please take a look at the all new Hathway Creative website.

I‘ve spent a good portion of the past month over at Hathway Creative working on a new website to support the release of the career spanning four CD box set of the band The Long Ryders, which was released last month by Cherry Red Records.

Its been an enjoyable and pretty wide encompassing project and my work has included the creation and launch of a new website, product photography of the set, some work promoting the site and set on social media and also I’ve had a part in designing some videos. Its been good fun too and its always interesting working on a project in a new area. In working on this I think I’ve mostly learned more than I would have liked on the convoluted and somewhat messy issues of music licensing and YouTube and Facebook.

Take a look at the new website at thelongryders.com which will also tell you all you might need to know on the Final Wild Songs box set.

And check out one of the videos here…

The Long Ryders will be touring Europe and the USA later in the year.

All Mod Cons

Logo design is clearly sometimes an art in itself. I’ve seen the kind of work you get on those “$5’s for a logo with unlimited revisions” websites* and while its not always true you get what you pay for, sometimes it really is.

This is all just a long winded way to post the following.

A friend of mine was launching a new forum as, while Facebook may be great for keeping in touch its groups and pages don’t work very well or give you many options to manage and organise information – Anything a few days old is pretty much lost in the either.

The forum is named All Mod Cons and is aimed to be new a forum for enthusiasts of modified cars.

The logo needed to be multifunctional so it could both be used as an identity for the website and across social media as well as suitable for promotional items and stickers. As such there were two main designs…
