I’ve been sitting too long today doing a set design project, so tomorrow I’ll get out into the cool 9 degrees C. and work off the extra few grams that are still lingering after a second helping of Christmas pudding before New Year’s Eve.
But before I meet tomorrow’s chill, here’s something a bit chilly from the book “The Development of the Theatre” by Allardyce Nicoll (3rd Edn. Pub. 1948 by George G. Harrap). It is a set design for a production of ‘Macbeth’ in New York and it looks strangely like the front freestanding part of my set design for a production of ‘Farndale Avenue … Macbeth’ at the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham which I’ve included at the base of this blog. It would be kinda spooky if I didn’t realise that ‘originality is merely undetected plagiarism’.
Further stage production design by Grant include:Sheila Carradine’s Direction of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte starring Cathy Homer and Patrick Baladi
This Gallery shows some of our design artwork for business and corporate clients.
We also design logos for Community Groups, Charities and N.G.O’s, donating 100% of our fee to charity.
Our design Process
Following your brief, we produce a series of numbered ‘pencil’ sketched ideas (between 5 and 10) and send them to you for feedback.
You pick the one that gets the closest to representing your brand and we start to define the finished image to the point it can be presented to your market for research.
From your market feedback we refine the design ready for our production of finished web and/or print-ready artwork. We deliver.
Some of our larger clients start to monitor their brand design straight after its launch. There are straightforward ways to do this though they take some time to put in place. I have just done a search and found that Thomson Reuters do this service but you will find many others
The HIDDEN Beginnings
Here are some of my first live meeting sketches for a new logo – sketches that are usually ‘behind the scenes’ and remain so, unseen:
