Branding for Colleen Jones

Being a graphic designer from Manchester means it is always a pleasure when local talent asked you to help them with their branding. Something that is very important in the creative industry and must never be over looked. I was briefed to create the brand and marketing materials for the Manchester based fashion photographer Colleen Jones. Her website can be viewed at www.colleenjones.co.uk

Branding for Colleen Jones

There seems to be a standard set of logos a lot of photographers always seem to end up with, you know the ones with a lens or a camera body worked in. I wanted to stay away from all of this and create a brand that stepped away from the norm and works as a strong brand. The idea behind her logo is very simple, Colleen Jones initials CJ have been made into the shape of a roll of film, which is a lovely simple idea. This simple idea didn’t come quickly however, it was a result of a long time spent sketching out her initials until it clicked that they could be turned into the shape of a film canister.

As well as the brand, I have been constantly assisting Colleen with her social media campaigns and management of her website. Not only do I supply a graphic design service in Manchester but I can also consult on social media and websites (design and SEO).

Specialising in fashion, portraiture, beauty and creative photography Colleen has so far shot for Kings Valley clothingill fortune clothing, Raingirl Clothing and Dirty disco vintage clothing. She has been featured in The Lucky jotter, The photographers directory and Style and talent.
