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.
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.
Strictly Dogs came to Tidbury Media looking for a fun logo design to represent their dog walking/sitting business. Briefed to create something using a playful image of a dog and with a relaxed typographic style. We put our experts on the job and hit the nail on the head.
“Thank you very much for the logo – it looks fantastic! I will definitely come back to you in the future when we need help with design materials, vehicle signage etc.”
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.

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.”

It’s not everyday we’re asked to create bespoke illustration, but when Bombay Sapphire asked us create an original digital illustration of their latest Gin bottle, we jumped at the chance. This is completely hand-drawn and digitally painted using the latest iPad software and took around 14 hours to complete. Every detail is hand drawn including the typography and Queen Victoria portrait.

“Everything has been great, the turn around time is the best we have had from anyone so thank you!”

Commissioned to shoot some PR shots for The Market Place on behalf of Billy’s On The Beach in Bracklesham Bay in West Sussex; the weather held out and I managed to ‘snap’ some shots before the ice creams melted completely.
Seen the photos…they’re amazing! Thank you so much. We would love to work with you again.
The exclusive Aviator Hotel on the edge of Farnborough International Airport kept me busy in the kitchen capturing a culinary master at work. I was privileged to be invited to photograph two of the latest creations by Head Chef Mateusz Maksymilian Mitka. We cleared an area in the hotel brasserie and set up shop. After whizzing around the kitchen for a few moments to grab some action shots of a man in his element, we settled into photographing the food itself. Well, it’s only courtesy to taste the goods!
‘Chevening’, based in London, is the UK Government’s Global Awards Scholarship Programme for international students. To promote the programme for 2018/19 we teamed up to develop a fun idea to highlight the benefits of studying in the UK and to highlight that ‘learning’ is in everyday life, not just the classroom. To illustrate this the idea was to transform iconic UK landmarks into study or discussion scenes; be it a desk, a debating circle or a high table. We were commissioned to research and develop a series of eight UK landmarks (representing all regions of the UK) and to photograph Chevening’s actual scholars in the studio, to be placed into the landscapes. The final images feature within the marketing campaign available to Chevening outposts world-wide.
We came with a strong idea, and Tidbury Media helped develop our creative brief into something even better. Very flexible, responsive, and enthusiastic about the job, and delivered quicker than we expected. Huge thanks! Our new collateral looks fantastic.
Mark Newman at ‘Stave Traders’ on the south coast, came to us for our amazing graphic design service. Working from our studio in Portsmouth, we were commissioned to create a typographic logo design and record sleeve artwork to represent his music on iTunes. It was a fairly strict brief but Mark was chuffed with the final results.
“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.

Commissioned to create a logo design for new construction business in Fareham, the design brief was very straight forward and we hit the nail on the head on the first draft which resulted in a 5 star review. Based in Portsmouth we supply graphic design services across the south, including Portsmouth, Southampton, Chichester and beyond.
“Great service and very prompt, no messing about , exactly what I was looking for!”
Titchfield Festival Theatre, based in Titchfield near Fareham in Hampshire, commissioned Tidbury Media to design and print their first annual theatre brochure of events and production marketing materials. Asked to create something engaging in a small A6 format, for easy pocketing, we set to work influenced by the theatres current logo marque. 25,000 copies of the 36 page booklet will be circulated across Hampshire and the South Coast.
Gosforth Aesthetics based in Newcastle commissioned us to develop a new logo design for their professional cosmetic health service. Briefed with keywords; Clinical; Professional; Simple; Luxury; and to avoid ‘beauty’. Working with a colour palette of Gold and Silver to work well on black and on white and to function across social media. This meant the device had to be compact enough to work as a profile image, for example.
“I am really pleased with your work and the quick turnaround. I love the logo, you’ve captured what I was hoping for and more.”
Birch Knowledge Academy commissioned us to create a brand new logo marque for their online tuition business. The brief was fairly sparse with a simple request to feature a birch leaf or tree icon. The only other stipulation was the colour palette. We started with the leaf designs which developed further with a greater focus on the tree. The final design featured the typographic element combined nicely with an outline of the bare birch tree. The below logos demonstrate the various initial options.

Partnered with author Edward Couzens-Lake, we were commissioned to design and produce Our Joyful Life, the biographical life story of Gary Hatt and Vera Thornhill. Based in Norwich the mother/son duo wanted to have their life story written and typeset into a professional book for posterity. A cathartic process for many – having the time to revisit moments in life for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
Their life’s ‘journey’ has been dominated by world travel and we wanted to represent that visually with optimism. The book is printed as a short run in both softback and hardback.
