Logos from the Hive days

Before I went freelance I used to be Media Coordinator for the Hive Music and Media Centre in Shrewsbury – part of my role was managing in-house video production and some of the design work, including creating flyers and logos.

During my time at the Hive, as well as being a general tech bod and project coordinator I was a one-woman curatorial team for their art gallery – I eventually ended up doing everything from programming the space and booking the artists to designing flyers and installing work, with the gratefully received help of some volunteers! As prior to having a regular programme the gallery was an ever-changing space with no clear purpose (there were several periods where it became a cafe/chill-out space instead) and a few of us shared marketing and design duties, I felt a bit of branding was required so I designed this simple logo to use on the flyers and website.

Changing Tracks was a very worthwhile project managed by The Hive in partnership with the region’s Youth Music Action Zone, Shropshire Council, the Young People’s Substance Misuse Team, Shropshire Drug Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) and West Mercia Police, and was launched in late 2007 to teach young people about the impact and dangers of alcohol misuse and provide a programme of music workshops to engage the participants creatively, boosting their confidence and self esteem. Way back when it started, project leader, alcohol worker and all round diamond geezer Sven Worrow asked me to design a logo for it – here it is!

I am a freelance artist mainly working with digital video, regularly managing video productions for both organisations and individuals and specialising in the documentation of arts events, exhibitions and performances and interviews, as well as creating my own films. In my own work, I like to examine the poetry in the commonplace, the beauty that goes unnoticed, and the ‘what if?’ I work with a variety of technologies ranging from high definition broadcast suites to low-cost mobile devices. Clients and employers have included British Library Labs, PQA, NCS The Challenge, Kings College London, Thinktank Science Museum and AL Control Laboratories. I am an independent Arts Award Advisor (trained to Gold level) and have worked with numerous community arts organisations in the UK, sharing my skills with young people interested in media production and the creative industries. I have produced and delivered hundreds of video projects, technology-based workshops and public art events. I also offer services such as media conversion, image editing and occasionally design/illustration work. I have my own equipment and car, and can multi-task like a fiend.
