Hello, my name is

Ash Loudon

I love awesome design and typography. That's why I have the best job in the world.

Here are a few logos I've created...


defcon3

Client: Defcon 3

The design for this classsic VW specialist is a nod towards the post-war German and Austrian recovery services. The design remained uncluttered in order that it could be transfered to stickers and print without modification.


saltlight

Client: Salt Light

This design aims to impart a healthy and fresh feel to this low sodium salt alternative. The dolphin incorporation was necessary due to the company's links with another brand in whose logo the dolphin is a central part.


fulcrum

Client: Fulcrum Design

A clean design accomplished using tight typographic choices. The pivot point is emphasised using striking green, but the underlying message is that the company has balance by having firm foundations in strong design. The use of uppercase characters help to reinforce this message.

A small selection of Internets...


salt light

Client: Salt Light

The design for the site followed the logo and continues to portray a healthy, natural impression. The site was built using Wordpress in order to allow the client to manage content.


Made with:
HTML 5, CSS3, Wordpress, lots of coffee
kustom kolors

Client: Kustom Kolors

Kustom Kolors have a reputation for producing bodywork of the highest standards. The company has a strong brand that is reflected throughout the website.


Made with:
HTML 5, CSS3
scc global

Client: SCC Global Consulting

With an incredibly high-profile client base, SCCG needed an uncluttered and business-like site that projected their position as one of the country's leading security consultancies.


Made with:
HTML 5, CSS3, Cufon text replacement

This is a (very) small selection of my photographs...

I spent a while in uniform

Being in the Army taught me a great deal about working under pressure and getting results. I've managed to shrug the tendancy to eat out of mess tins and dig holes in the garden. However, I do still like a nicely pressed shirt.

Complexity demands organisation

Creating plans that deliver results is a real skill. My skills are enhanced by being a PRINCE2 Practitioner, although I am adamant that this methodology simply provides a structure to the plan, rather than become a driving force.


oops!

I'm comfortable with uncertainty

Plans are only ever as good as those that drive them to conclusion. I have practical leadership experience in spades, so when the inevitable happens (and the wheels fall off) we can get the project back on course and still be home in time for tea and medals.

I've worked with some nice folk

"Ash undertook to design and build the SCCG Consulting website. His approach to the analysis was wholly professional, rapidly developing a detailed understanding of our business and website requirements"

Michael Fuller - SCC Global

"Ash did a great job of the new website. Working with our existing style, he created a site that looks and feels just how we wanted. He kept us well informed and went to great efforts to ensure we felt connected with the project throughout."

Colin Ware - Kustom Kolors

"Ash listened to my company's website requirements and the result is far beyond what we thought possible. Thoroughly professional, he brings with him a fresh and dynamic approach providing considered advice and excellent support and we have no hesitation in recommending him."

Celia Wood - Salt Light

Finally, do yourself a favour...

See the orange shape? If it's round, you're using an up to date browser and you can give yourself a pat on the back. Good for you.
If it's a square, your browser is waaaaay out of date and you're not getting all you should from the Internet. Treat yourself to the best browser available by clicking here and installing Google Chrome. It's free, easy and helps to fight global warming. Probably.
