The Hicks Logowall

05 Oct 2018
Hicks Logo wall preview

I was feeling a bit nostalgic this morning, and decided to assemble a wall of every logo that Leigh and I have designed since starting Hicksdesign back in 2002. I look back on a lot of the work now with a wry smile, noting the fashions of the time, and how differently I would do things now. Some of them are no longer in use, some are yet to be released, but there are still a fair majority still in use, even if in updated form.

I’ve even included (almost) all the different versions of the Hicks logo that there have been over the years, missing just the very first one from 2002. I don’t seem to have original files for that one anymore sadly :(

There are some embarrasing ones here, but amongst my favourites are Leigh’s LifeCraft logo, and the one I made for The Escape Committee:

The Viking Song

For countries that aren’t lucky enough to have the CBBC children’s channel, and in particular, the Horrible Histories series, I offer the Viking Song to you. You won’t be able to get it out of your head… LITERALLY!!

    I didn’t manage to do a single episode of the Troika Podcast in 2018, but I’ve managed to record one now. Doing the whole process on my iPad Pro is wonderful! Episode 33 coming soon…

    Found a bundle of things from my birth while at my Dads today. Leaflets on maternity benefits, welfare services and my weight card (Johnathan? Have I been spelling my one name wrong all these years?!)

    For her birthday last year, some of Leigh’s chums clubbed together bought her a gin blending weekend at the Plough in Clanfield. We booked it for January (when it would be needed most). It was like a potions class, and after a lot of smelling, she now has a gin that tastes like pencil shavings! It’s even nicer than it sounds!
