My Haus is an online store for your house, bringing the best in designer homeware and gifts together in one place. Drawing inspiration from the Bauhaus and mid-century modernism, Frank created the identity and promotional imagery, and designed/built the full retail site, incorporating CMS and blog. www.myhaus.com
Frank has just produced a new site and online shop for Sam McKechnie, the designer/maker behind The Magpie and the Wardrobe. Sam fashions little flower fairies and one-off jewellery pieces from beautiful old charms and vintage fabrics.
Yes, admittedly the pun is a little late as we’re now in February! Anyway, we were happy to once again work with Charlotte at Noble Ox marketing on the creation of this new identity for Fathers Network Scotland. We also worked up some style sheet designs for their new website which has recently gone live.
There are odd occasions when a piece of work that we’re proud of never gets to see the light of day. This can happen for reasons too numerous to go into here, and is obviously frustrating for us passionate designer types… so we thought why not share some of the ones that got away? A few months ago we were asked to contribute an identity to a groovy anti-knife crime campaign set up by a group of London bands. We thought our logo above worked really well. We also created a wilder stencilled version with a hand and microphone which looked quite Gonzo-esque. Ultimately, neither of our submissions made the cut (sorry, bad gag), which was a shame.
Frank have created the Identity and overall visual approach for gorgeous-designer-type-stuff-online-retailer Five Go Mad. They feature fashion, food, art, homeware, and even courses, all with a “Quintessentially British” vibe. Sounds like a one-stop-shop for all your Christmas needs. Here at Frank Towers we’re especially loving Hanna Melin’s ‘Best Of Memories’ cassette print.
Frank has recently created the new identity and website for ISAN (formerly known as the Independent Street Arts Network). ISAN is an independent group of producers, promoters and artists who work in the field of outdoor arts. As well as providing useful downloads and an events calendar, the site also allows members to network and share information.
From the Frank side, a big shout has to go out to “no problem” for leading the site build and getting to grips with all the database malarky.
… SLASH DOT DASH DOT SLASH DOTCOM!
Frank has just designed the new website for multi-talented musician, DJ, remixer and producer Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim. Inspired by a visit to Norm’s own studio in Brighton, the site references a lot of his own personal collection of sampler gizmos, musical gadgets, floppy disks(!), and scrapbooks of stickers and ephemera. As well as looking cool, and the usual historical stuff, the site allows lots of user interaction… you can Ask Norm a question, kick back and watch videos in the TV room or listen to tracks on Norm’s music player. There’s also info about upcoming tours, image galleries and if you subscribe to Norm’s news feed, you’ll receive regular updates on what great stuff is coming up in the future.
Finally, some tributes (in the style of a Club DJ of course), “Big shout goes out to Katy and Jamie from Southern Fried Records for getting us involved, for Norm and family for being such nice hosts, and also to our boy ‘No Problem’ Nigel for all his efforts with the design and build, now let’s make some f**king noise!”
Frank recently helped out with some album graphics for long-term bluesinlondon contributor and all-round good egg, Mr Mark Harrison. It was definitely back to the old art school days as we lovingly ‘scooped’ out a linocut cityscape illustration for Mark’s excellent new recording: Watching the Parade. Even though sharp implements were employed, no major cuts or bruises ensued and all our fingers are still intact! Anyway, we also really like the record and not just because he’s a mate! You can find out more about Mark at his myspace page.
Frank has created a new identity and website for the groovy rock ‘n’ roll cats over at Broccoli Events. They have recently linked up with new branding partners (and regular Frank collaborators) BrandVoice to offer a wider spread of services. Got an event or party? Need some bands? Broccoli Events are your fellas!
