MME book launch party

We had a great night at the Arnolfini for the launch of Me, Myself & Eye, a book by Dan Jeffries that was designed by CompanyX. Dan gave a great speech outlining how the project came into being and the challenges he faced along the way. We really enjoyed working with Dan and in the end did a few other things other than just the book including teaser postcards, social media assets, pop-up banner, mirrors and event posters. There was a great turnout on the night and lots of copies were sold which we were really pleased about. The finished book is great and was published on October 12th and is now available from Tangent Books or from Dan’s website.


Freelance and brilliant?

Due to a number of fantastic new business wins, CompanyX require a few extra pairs of hands to help out.

In particular we are looking for:

– Graphic designers/creative artworkers with an expert knowledge of print and Adobe CC. Infographic and charity / NGO experience a definite advantage.

– Web designer with excellent knowledge of UX best practice and a bunch of impressive urls.

– WordPress developer with expert knowledge of responsive/fluid.

– Copywriter with particular experience of brand development.

If you meet any of the above please get in touch with availability, day rate and urls/portfolio pdf.  Thanks!

We get paid in pies

Do you hate blog and twitter posts that feature what somebody is just about to eat?  Yes I do too, but bear with me, in this posting I’m going to make an exception.

A while ago, I offered to design the wedding invitations for occasional CompanyX collaborator (and friend), Chiara Mitchell. The offer was a favour and I was happy to share the love but didn’t expect any payment whatsoever. I was gobsmacked when a pile of Pieminister tokens arrived by special delivery late this morning. Rather than smacking my gob I quickly decided to fill it instead.

Literally within minutes I was in St Nick’s food market in Bristol tucking into a glorious ‘Mothership’ – as pictured (pie, mash, peas, fried onions, gravy and cheese!).

Thanks Chiara, I can now barely move but completely worth it.

MME Kickstarter

Following on from the Me, Myself and Eye book design and video work we have done with first time author Dan Jeffries, the kickstarter funding campaign is now well under way. The book is an often hilarious account of Dan’s life and the REALLY bad luck he has had with his health, starting with being born blind in one eye. Rather than being a tough read, and without wishing to give the game away, it’s very entertaining and life affirming.

What makes this project even more different is that there is also an app to support the book which will feature pictures, music, video, letters, scans etc. to make it a fully immersive experience. So far Dan has raised over half of his target so to see Me, Myself and Eye in a bookshop near you (or on Amazon obvs) please go here.
