Rhapsody Coaching, a personal and business coaching company, came to me asking for a single page digital brochure for download, featuring their services. Working with their brand guidelines I managed create something fun, colourful and engaging while maintaining the brand image. Their logo marque provided a great visual device to place images and text within. The overall brochure designed to be viewed onscreen, or tablet.
Petworth based organic free range egg farm, Hallgate Farm, commissioned Tidbury Media to rework their website and populate it with images we took as part of another project for one of Hallgate’s customers.

Continuing in our work with London based Lebanese restaurant chain, Maroush, we’ve been developing January healthy eating campaign collateral including these attractive table displays highlighting their healthy eating offers. As well as taking care of the design, we also had the opportunity to shoot the imagery too.
The Comeback is a talent show in a similar vein to the likes of X-Factor and The Voice currently in development. I was asked to create an opening title logo image that could then be animated for television.
Lebanese restaurant chain, Maroush, have a series of restaurants and take-away food establishments scattered across central London. I was asked to come on board to create a campaign for Christmas 2019 including a food photography shoot in their flagship high-end restaurant, Crockers Folly, the images from which were then used in the roll out of their printed materials and social media campaigns. Materials including posters, table cards, gift tags, menus and table placemats.
Alongside this they’ve also just launched two new businesses. The first is taking their exquisite cuisine on the road offering outdoor catering for corporate and domestic functions. For this they were seeking a simple signature style logo marque taking the name from their Father, the founder or Maroush, who is still actively involved in the running. The second is in food production and for this another logo marque and set of promotional pull-up banners.
‘I Hear Those Boots’ is the biography of Betty Gillett, an 80 year-old resident of Hampshire who grew up in the midst of conflicts between Japan and Malaysia in the early part of the 20th Century. Her story reveals the brutality of war, and as a child how she escaped death by hiding beneath the floorboards. In later life she flourished and has enjoyed an amazing life of world travel. I had the privilege of reading and typesetting the book before creating unique cover.

When the Lake District Foundation, a charitable trust based in the Lake District, came to Tidbury Media looking for a brand new brochure design to celebrate their first year, we jumped at the chance. Working from our base in Portsmouth, the brochure design includes a few statistic and introduces the trust and their work. Naturally, the brochure design features some really nice photography and it would have been a shame not to make full use of that, so we adopted a detail from their logo design as a device for holding the photography throughout.

“Tony Beasley really did run away from home to go to sea. This book recalls some of the adventures he had during his time in the Royal Navy. A remarkable story that includes his retelling of the part he played in a mission that took place during the Cold War. One that took place on a vessel he had vowed he would never serve on, yet a mission that, with typical stoicism and courage, he faced up to and dealt with in such a way that, ultimately, he emerged from it being regarded as a hero. A hero who wasn’t allowed to tell anyone where he had been or what he had done. Memories of a life spent at sea told with a refreshing mix of dark humour and brutal honesty. Tony doesn’t hold back, he tells things as he sees it. Even if it gives someone a bloody nose in the process.”
Commissioned as part of ‘Everyone Has A Story To Tell’, working alongside Author Edward Couzens-Lake, we created this engaging book jacket design and typeset the book. Tony, from Emsworth in Hampshire, was overwhelmed with the graphic design.

In recent years we’ve worked with US based publishers in the conception and ongoing production of three magazine titles. Campus Talk is a free lifestyle magazine aimed at the student market.
