Tidbury Media - Book Design

I Hear Those Boots

‘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.

Commissioned as part of ‘Everyone Has A Story To Tell’, my partnership with published author and ghost-writer Edward-Couzens-Lake.

Product Photography

Jooveo Product Photography

Commissioned to create some high-end images for facial massage product, Jooveo. At Tidbury Media I provide photographic services across wide spectrum of disciplines and product photography is just one of those. This project posed a good challenge technically despite the simplicity of lighting.

“Thank you for your work, it was lovely working with you. I really liked the photos you’ve taken and I’ll let you know if I have another project in the future.”

Brochure Design in Portsmouth

Lake District Foundation – Brochure Design

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.

“Tidbury Media are really easy to work with, and our final report looks great! We will definitely use Tidbury Media again.”

Belle Amour – Logo Branding

Hair stylist duo, Belle Amour, asked us to create a logo and to develop a visual identity for their new salon. Recommended to us by Jewel Windows, who we work closely with, we presented a variety of ideas and this design stood out. After some tweaks we’re pleased with the result.

Just wanted to say thank you so much, the logo looks awesome! I love the colours and I’m buzzing.

Point of sale design

Point-Of-Sale Display

Purple Pot, a start-up company providing personalised contactless donation terminals for fundraisers, came to Tidbury Media with a simple idea in mind. We were tasked with developing and producing a customisable temporary branding plate that could be partnered with their merchant terminals. The final product is a bespoke acrylic plate in the company colour with simple instructions printed to the surface detailing instruction for use. The plate is easily added or removed using hook and loop pads.

Run Silent Run Deep

“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.

Magazine Design

Magazine 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. Flourish is a free lifestyle magazine aimed at men and women. The title was split 50/50 with a female cover and articles on one side, the whole magazine then flipped to reveal the men’s section. Gator Country, a college sports title based in Florida. The magazine featured a monthly run down of sporting events and achievements from across Florida’s major universities.

Logo Design

Sarah Povey – Logo Design

Sarah Povey Voice Movement Therapy, based near Chichester in West Sussex, asked us to create a nice logo marque to represent her business. Sarah takes great care in her work often working with vulnerable people. We’ve created a clean logo design in colours that evoke specific ideas. Green representing healing, and purple representing spiritualism. We’ve also employed a simple icon as an additional element for easy recognition across mobile and small scale  applications. The new logo was the applied to a poster which forms the beginning of the brand visual. We were also commissioned with capturing some portraits for the poster and general marketing.

Magazine covers

Seven years of magazine design

Between 2011 and 2018 we published Mayhem! Magazine (www.issuu.com/mayhemmagazine) a free culture and lifestyle magazine. We reached issue 50 in August 2018, with over 500,000 individual printed copies circulating, and realised that all good things must come to an end, so what better time to call it ‘a day’. It has been a fantastic run and we’ve had great fun, met loads of people and interviewed some inspiring people. You can still enjoy every single issue available on the above link. To all those involved we THANK YOU.

COFFEE POD

Coffee Sense – Packaging Design

Coffee Sense, an artisan coffee roaster and manufacturer based in Somerset, asked us to design their new range of coffee capsule packaging. We’ve been working with Coffee Sense for a number years in the graphic design and development of their branding, their range of foil wrapped coffee pods and a variety of other marketing and packaging materials. This recent addition involved creating a packaging design to work across three box sizes to feature coffee tasting notes. See  www.tidburyphotography.com for packaging and product photography.
