I've been supplying design templates to Flyerzone for about six months now. Flyerzone is a new venture into the world of pre-built design templates. Owned by Printing.com they have a very large range of flyer and leaflet templates. Within my designs, I have tried to offer a mixed range of high end designs as well as some budget focussed work.

The photos of me for ScotlandShop were taken by YID Photography. YID Photography are a company based in Duns, in the Scottish Border region. YID is a well known and respected Photographer, specialising in Portrait, Wedding and Event photography. Personally, I believe that a sign of a good photographer is down to the rapport that they have with their subjects, as much as their technical skill. YID has both of these skills and does it with ease.
I normally write about graphic design on this blog, but I thought I'd mention some photos that I had taken a few years ago. About 4 years ago, I thought that I might get some model work, so I had some lifestyle shots taken by John and Serena of Image Newcastle. I was very impressed with the overall results and I would recommend anyone to use them. The photos were worth the effort because I did get some modelling out of it from ScotlandShop. As a designer, I am normally working on the other side of the camera at the occasional photo shoot for scarves or other products, but a wee bit of vanity now and then can be good fun.

I see that the Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust have moved over to a .org website. I think the site looks new and fresh. I think it works well and suits the magazine style of website that is best suited for football websites. All the best for the remainder of the season.
I was recently involved in the design of a new project for Wholsale Heat. The work involved logo design concepts and a website layout. Wholesale Heat are suppliers of quality wholesale kiln dried firewood logs, wholesale briquettes, wholesale wood pellets, wholesale kindling and real Scottish peat.

I recently did some design concepts for Border Baguettes based in Duns. The client wanted a simple solution, so that's what I did. Overall, I think that the design works well. The proprietor has a good reputation and great experience working within the food industry.
