Close to the main carfax in Birmingham’s upcoming jewellery quarter with designer pop-ups and artisan cafes, 1000 Trades is the thriving go-to neighbourhood bar.
The signage was all hand-painted or acid-etched on glass in the bold black and white brand identity palette, with a strong modern typeface set on a foursquare ground.
1000 Trades logotype has been fine tuned to work at extremes of scale with no loss of design integrity, and for exterior: clear low-light visibility.
Personal letterpress project made at Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft using standard and luminous inks on archival papers.
Realismo is Italian for a philospophy that is based on pragmatism and facing the true nature of situations. The first computer hard-drive was invented in 1956—whether this is the start or the end of rational thought, it marks the first major disruption to all things analog, especially in field of type design.

Independent film events’ company based on the South Coast required a strong visual identity. The logotype idea sprung from the way film travels around a projector while the film is running.
During the pilot launch of the project the interactive ‘cinema experience’ company sold out all events, and by the final screening had to increase venue capacity to match demand.
New posts on this coming in January.

Using a combination of hand-lettering and digital type, the Icklesham School Summer Fair poster was all about conveying the abundance of Summer and the bounty of attractions offered at the fayre. The 2017 theme was Robin Hood, hence the arrow striking the event date, and the colour scheme.

Pencil drawing of Hastings Pier following its re:invention by dRMM architects and designers in April 2016.
It shows the low profile Birch Room and viewing platform, still supported by the Victorian stanchions designed by Eugenius Birch in 1872—the pier is now a perfect combination of modern and period, with its high material emphasis on renewable sources and sustainability.
Providing brand consultancy and graphic design for Hastings Pier Charity, on the award-winning pier designed by architects DrMM, junction44 was commissioned to design and produce this destination flyer.
We worked on the brand identity colours and type detailing of the logotype, including content copy, tone of voice; generating the tagline and image suite for the launch.

A collaboration with photographer James Robertshaw and installed across 44 windows at Hastings station; 22 Separations combines abstract seascape images with meditative texts, jottings of overheard conversations whilst journeying the Hastings to Charing X line. High-end commercial advertising values were employed to jolt the viewer into another world less ordinary.
Being adhered to glass, the images were backlit and mood-modified by the natural light changes over the course of a day and a night.
The original idea was that you would be walking through an ‘aquarium’, so the walkway was blacked out with the posters, themselves acting as viewing ports to interior dialogues and everyday whispers twisted, amplifed …

This book is a collaboration between writer/designer Ross Clifford and Frankfurt photographer Jorg Steinmetz. It’s an offbeat dialog Between words and visuals, with a foreword by bestselling crime writer Peter James, and chronicles 52 wks of e-conversation between the artists. The methodology was similar to ‘call and response’ in Jazz music where in this case the starting photograph triggered a text response, that in turn triggered the next visual and so on x52.

Ross Andrews-Clifford’s experimental 10-piece band, here playing live with the Camo Quartet from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama on stage at GROW Hackney.
The piece is based on the LaMonte Young improvisation 1960 #7. Young’s Composition 1960 pieces, provide one of the basic foundations for the idea to serve as the artwork by itself, with no unnecessary embellishment. Central to Young’s work is the concept of “stasis,” as opposed to “Fluxus.” “Change or flux is inevitable,” Young wrote. “Stasis, or remaining the same, is impossible.”
The musicans play B and F# in various transpositions and build a harmonic overtoning effect akin to a meditative state.
Junction44 was commissioned by Andrew Howard at Beechdean Motorsport to create some graphics for their new cars—especially the new BMW mini range and this Ferrari 360, which went on to secure wins in several GT championships.
