ISSUU - Iain Smith

Got around to putting a load of documents I’ve done for various clients on to issuu. Nice to have everything in one place.

This is mostly the big stuff - not much by way of posters/flyers, but I’ll get round to putting them up soon.

Quick job I completed for the National Piping Centre for a special edition beer they’ve collaborated with WEST to produce for Piping! Live’s 10th birthday event.
Not my best work, admittedly, but the brief was tricky so think it came out okay.

Wedding planning is stressful, but luckily I can take at least one bit of it into my own hands. This is the Save The Date card which has gone out to our guests for the wedding. Wasn’t sure about using the engagement photo, but figured that not everyone has them so might as well make the most of them.

Test bottle from my second batch of home brew, which has been bottle conditioning for just over a week.
It’s a red ale, dry hopped for four days with about 35g of citra and 35g of cascade hops. 
I was slightly worried about infection, and it carbing up properly, so opened one of the forty bottles a fair bit earlier than I needed to. It’s still very young, but it’s got a lot of potential and should be lovely in a couple of weeks time.

Spent an afternoon with the QMU Whisky Club and friends to mark the anniversary of a close mate’s birth at Auchentoshan distillery on the outskirts of Glasgow. The tour was fantastic, and the whisky… alright.Took my camera along simply to take photos for the club’s website/social media, as its run by a few friends, but ended up with a few nice snaps including the one above, that might be worth sharing.

Posters for the GUSRC Spring Election 2013.

Full brand development project, admittedly not my finest work as it was commissioned immediately following the completion of the GUSRC Annual Report, a 12 week project which exhausted me creatively.

I think they serve their purpose, and it was exciting to work with the organisation as it promotes the new position of VP Student Activities - the replacement for the role I served in as VP Comms.

Did this yesterday.
She said yes, which is a sign of it having gone well, I think.
Thanks to Gavin Reynolds for coming along and shooting this. We’ve got a whole album of photos thanks to his long lens and hiding behind tree skills.

RHA Blog - Hearing What Your Headphones Have to Offer

An article I worked on with one of our sound engineers about showcasing the capabilities of headphones or earphones using a diverse mixture of music. 

Pretty happy with the end result, though the list was originally 12 tracks long, but that’s the editing process.

Glad you give a shout out to CHVRCHES in this piece, too, not that they need it. Genuinely one of the most exciting bands to come through Scotland in a while, looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday at Arches, Glasgow.

Aye, and the image is supposed to be a cool, artistic sound wave, only realised it looked a little bit like a screencap of a shampoo advert after we posted it.

Having previously done an Annual Report for Glasgow University SRC, I knew there were things that could be improved upon, given a second chance.

This year’s report is a lot subtler in its use of colour, less bloated with single-page articles and filler and general tighter in both design and copy edit.

My role in producing this was layout and design, statistical analysis and data analysing, copy editing, proofing and preflighting. 

Pretty pleased with how it turned out. Marked improvement on my previous effort, in my opinion.
