DOT.Graphics in demand

With the economic climate as it is, DOT.Graphics have had an increase in instructions for marketing/graphic work. With a downturn in demand, companies from all fields are having to be sure that their brand sends out the right message to potential clients.  DOT have created graphic work for a broad spectrum of disciplines, from simple logo redesign, to full graphics and marketing packages. Get in touch if your brand needs a retouch.

Projects shown are marketing literature for an architect redevelopment of Poundbury, Dorchester, and a rebrand for the cleaning firm Daisymaid. 

Hey Bournemouth, wish you were here?

Darren H: On our recent trip around Europe (me and the wife),our final destination was the spectacular Guggenheim, in Bilbao. A place the two of us have wanted to go for years, but never had the chance. They say you should never meet your idol because you will be disappointed, well this wasn't the case here. Amazing building that is breathtaking. Contemporary architecture can sometimes be a show of new and exciting methods/materials in construction, a lesson in engineering. To create a space that has not only pushed engineering boundaries, but still offers a sense of real inspiration and leaves you speechless, well that is the work of a genius.

Designed by the Architect Frank Gehry, this was one of his first commissions in Europe and Kick started his career out of America. If you are interested, Sydney Pollack directed a film called 'Sketches of Frank Gehry' which is unmissable for the Contemporary Architecture Fan, lets hope we could inspire some designs of this standard here in Bournemouth. 

I have to add that since its construction the city of Bilbao has gone from strength to strength, and was once a port with no real identity. Hats  off to the city council who have realised the impact decent architecture can have on a place, with more exciting projects being built, Bilbao has become a must see place, not just for architecture fans.
