//Photoshop and Design


All you see on this website was designed and built by myself. No templates were used. All imagery you see on this website is put together by myself, whether that be graphics I edited or created by the use of Photoshop CC2015 or Pixelmator (for those quick edits) or the backgrounds on this website which are images taken from my photography portfolio.

As well as being the web designer and master for this site, I also run the KYROS website. I also create graphical content for KYROS' social media outlets. I get a lot of enjoyment out of creating and building. When I'm not working on music, I find I'm working on something else that involves a creative mindset. With music, I like to layer and layer to create thick textures - this is very much the same way I approach creative use of photoshop.

Below, you'll see my portfolio of graphic design, photoshop and merchandise work.

//Synaesthesia Logo Variations 

Back when the band was called 'Synaesthesia' (the original name before the change was made to 'KYROS' in October 2015), we had a logo that was originally designed and hand drawn by the very talented Freyja Dean. The artwork for our debut album was also hand drawn and painted by Freyja.
 
We were fortunate enough to have free reign over using this logo in any way we wanted - this meant we were given the okay to make graphical edits for use on merchandise and online. To the side, you'll see I made colour edits to the logo as time went by to reflect the context theme.

//Band Posters and Flyers

Not only have we needed posters and flyers for concerts, but also for hiring adverts/posters in the earlier days when KYROS were looking to welcome new members into the band.
 
Posters and flyers need to serve the purpose of being informative and useful, yet simple, uncluttered and eye-catching.
 
Above are a few examples of my posters and flyers.

//Social Media Graphics

Social media is typically used to keeps fans and followers up to date with the latest news, especially within a band context. With accessable platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, it's helpful to take advantage of graphical customisation options such as Facebook's 'cover photos' to keep those up to date with the latest; whether that be tour dates, album release dates, review snippets etc 

//Merchandise Design

 
As well as maintaining updated graphics for KYROS' social media outlets, I also design all the merchandise sold on the online store and at our merch stands at concerts.
 
This includes shirts, hoodies, posters, badges etc
