This was a project to brand a new event by PPA. The event is a networking event for events proffesionals. The logo was designed in collaboration with other designers. I also produced the conference agenda brochure which allowed people to see what was going on, on the day. It was printed on UPM Fine SC Uncoated.
The projected was carried out whilst at Anderson Norton Design.
AND Studio Website
This was a collaborative project between me and one of my colleagues at Anderson Norton Design. We were set the task by our creative director, to create something beautifully simple but effective that represented our studio.
We designed something that allows the work to speak with being cluttered by over the top design. The site is fully responsive and works across desktop, tablet and mobile.
We are very pleased with the design, take a look.
I was asked by project mangement compnay, Workplace Concepts to rebrand their company. It was a exciting project, as they wanted to combine their experience with new modern techiques. This first part of the project involved re-designing their logo into a simple form. FF Scala Sans was used to show the best of both their skills, because of the sans/sans serif construction of the typeface. This allowed the logo to take a strong but simple form.
The stationary was designed to be coherent and consistent through out the set. The business cards were duplexed on two types of GF Smith ColourPlan. Then foiled one side and litho printed the other. The rest of the stationary was printed of GF Smith Mohwak Ultrawhite Smooth Eggshell.
Park Plaza Hotels - Chino Latino Cocktail Menus
This was a project to re-design the cocktail menus in Park Plaza's Pan-Asian restaurants Chino Latino. The design I came up with was to produce a set of badges for each spirit or cocktail type to work with a unique pattern, to carry an authentic Latin theme. The drinks were also shown by simple symbols for easy reading.
The menu was printed in English and German in their hotels in Riverbank London, Nottingham, Leeds and Colonge Germany.
The projected was carried out whilst at Anderson Norton Design.
Helvetica was a project at The University of Portsmouth. The project was for my dissertation, in which I explored, has Helvetica created a fixed image of Swiss design and become a victim of it's own success. I choose the topic because I have a huge passion for Swiss design, and I wanted to explore how a global giant such as Helvetica has effected it. I spent a lot of time researching the topic as well as interviewing Massimo Vignelli, Eric Spiekermann & Hans Dieter Reichert for their opinion on the topic. I found the project very interesting and helped enrich my knowledge of the subject area. The original dissertation was wire bound in which I received a 1:1 for my work. I later pursued the project personally further by creating a designed book about my work. It was printed on 148gsm Mohawk Superfine Eggshell Ultrawhite paper, for a natural uncoated look.
Secret London is a multifarious interactive experience that allows commuters to communicate their unique daily experiences. For example, discovering an old church in Shoreditch or graffiti off Tottenham Court road. Becoming part of Secret London’s network aims to facilitate commuters to enrich their daily commute through a reciprocal sharing experience.
Secret London’s structure is designed to be simple and effective by allowing easy access to its content across different platforms. Users can access Secret London by using QR codes or URL’s featured on marketing material. The structure of Secret London creates a responsive system that allows users to co-author and evolve the content, into a rich social sharing community.
Secret London would be marketed/promoted in a way that is both bold and playful, to invite users to participate and engage with the process, to discover the intrigue of the Secret London through QR codes/URL’s.
The identity for Secret London was based upon the visual language of Westminster street signs, to create a recognisable signifier for commuters. This was primarily communicated by using Univers Light 47 Condensed, which carried the most prominent characteristics. The colour for the identity was used in a daring manner (C=15 M=96 Y=51 K=2), to create a striking visual aesthetic with a touch of sophistication. Producing a cohesive and contrasting combination across all user experiences.
Signifier was a self elected brief for my final major project at the University of Portsmouth. The whole point of the project was to get back to the basics of designs. This is because I feel there is too much focus on the aesthetic of the design and not on the core elements. The magazine aims to summarise all the key areas I feel, are crucial in design, so a user could read about semiotics and understand the underlying principles, so when they next create a design they would think about whats important.
Leaf Hospitality is a Hotel Management company that delivers effective results for world leading hotel brands. The brief was to create a simple and clear website to demonstrate their services. It was designed and built to work across desktop, tablet and mobile.

Janson Creative was the identity for myself. The idea behind was that I didn't want to use my full name, but just my last 'Janson', because of the length. One of the main aims of the identity, was to create a high quality produced set of elements that represented me. The business cards were foil blocked on 350gsm Colorplan for a luxury finish. The CV Mailer was printed on a tabloid newsprint to give a full scale view of my work.
Form Magazine Poster
This was a poster for a project at University. We had to come up with a poster that summed up the bold and unique style of Form Magazine. We went to the Design Museum to photograph this new environmental palet chair, which helped us form this environmental theme. We also added humour to the poster with the german wording meaning *cushion not included, to reflect the quirky theme of the magazine. The poster was printed by silk screen.
Marks & Spencer Plan A
This project looked into the Marks & Spencer Plan A campaign. It aimed to produce a new engaging identity to interact with Marks & Spencer’s customers. As well as this it was meant portray the achievements of the Plan A campaign. The audience for the project is a typical Marks & Spencer customer who cares about ethical issues, quality and high levels of customer service which would be found in Marks & Spencer and in their products. The outcome was communicated through a clean-cut typographic logotype, which was meant to represent Marks & Spencer’s simple style. The colours chosen were also ones that communicate the environmental message. These were the lime green of Marks & Spencer, brown and olive green. This also allowed for a refreshing contrast of colours against the typography. The language for the design took inspiration from the Marks & Spencer branding, to use the word “your” to make the customer feel engaged and part of the campaign.
Portsmouth / London / 12
This project was about producing a vibrant cohesive visual set of elements for the University of Portsmouth - BA (Hons) Graphic Design - London Show 2012. The initial angled shape mark and modular concept was decided as a whole course, in the direction of how we would represent ourselves. We than began with several rigorous silk screen tests with coloured paper and inks. As well as metallic inks. This allowed us to initially see what worked well and what did not.
After this testing period, I was tasked with designing the invites and poster for the show. I came up with the conceptual layout and design for both, and printed the items with James Taylor. The Invite concept was to allow it to be read in two ways for effective reading. Whilst at the same time being exciting. The invite was printed in a 3 layer silk screen, on grey board, to produce the finished over print effect. I also created the Portsmouth - London typography to create a definable aspect to the work.
I wanted the poster to be a lot more striking than the invites, so I played with large scale typography to allow a clear message to be read, whilst keeping structure and hierarchy. We also overprinted with several different colours related to our show to create an exciting but unified visual product.
