Emission Zero Eco Fashion Show Catalogue
Kingston Lafferty Design have been pretty busy of late and we have been getting to be part of some exciting design. Recently we designed the graphics and branding and oversaw the lighting and layout design for the emissionzero eco fashion show which was held in Lillies Bordello. It was a huge success of an event with a great turn out on the night of over 500 people. The event aimed to promote sustainable fashion and showcased the work of 5 of Irelands most well known and up and coming eco designers; Sinead Doyle, Deirdre Mahon from Quack and Dirk, Sophie Rieu, Nadine Roberts and Rediscover Fashion. Every taste was tantalised by the broad range of style on offer. Below are images of the catalogue which we designed for the event, giving background information about emission zero, the facts and benefits behind sustainable fashion and biographies and clothes lists of all the designers showcasing their work.
We wanted the branding and graphics to be playful and strong, clearly linking back to nature and the concept of environmentally friendly. It was also extremely important that the emissionzero brand stood out throughout the show so we used the teardrop shape of their logo throughout the catalogue, invitation and banners to carry the brand through.
Emission Zero Brochure
Its been a while since I updated this with all the work that I have been doing. Whilst working on the ez cube for emission zero I was also working as part of Kingston Lafferty Design on graphics for them, including a corporate booklet for clients and colleagues. I wanted to create an exciting brochure that was clean, easy to read without being too corporate and boring. I went with their existing website and used their existing logo to create a bright and exciting design.


The EZ Cube

…construction begins….

I have been working on some new projects since finishing my Masters last month. Myself and my colleague Susanna Kingston have formed a partnership called Kingston Lafferty Design and we have been working on a few corporate jobs. We just finished a piece for Emission Zero. They wanted us to create a bespoke eco-friendly installation to promote their brand as well as up and coming designers. We created a piece called the ez-cube. This was a 2.5m high cube that was comprised of recycled cardboard tubes. The tubes were coloured in the brands colours and were gradiated both in tone and length leading to the central piece which was Emission Zero’s logo. The cube was designed to have high impact on passers by and the strong forms and colours achieved this aim well. The cube was launched at the RDS Dublin at this years Irish Sustainable Building Show. It will reappear at the upcoming Plan Expo Event. All elements of the structure were made from eco friendly materials including eco friendly glue and eco friendly paint. This was part of the brief given to us by Emission Zero, a carbon offsetting and emission consultancy.
