Have a project in mind? Here’s a few ways I can help you succeed.

LOGO DESIGN

Authentic branding

Design Joint creates distinctive, authentic and iconic identities which aid and promote instant public recognition out in the marketplace, and help you remain in the mind of your customer. The best logos have a strong, noticeable brand personality. Does yours? Whether you require a completely new design, a refresh of your brand or refinement of your existing identity, I’ll ensure you wow audiences. Logo designs can be either purely graphic (symbols/icons) or composed of the your name (a custom logotype or word mark).

APPAREL & MERCH

Everyone loves t-shirts

What true fan could leave a concert without one? Especially when it commemorates a killer gig they attended by their favorite band. Fans feel connected to the artist and wear them very proudly. Let your audience roam freely with you’re brand and cash in on their desire to sport merchandise that declares their allegiance to you. No stranger to the world’s leading music merchandising companies myself, I’ve created innovative and best-selling designs for the biggest names in the business. Are you a licensed merchandiser looking to develop designs for your next retail product line or tour event sales? Let’s talk.

ALBUM COVER DESIGN

Great music deserves great art

A fantastic album cover will grab the attention of potential new listeners and encourage them to check out your music. It may even help you get featured in iTunes and other music directories. So, it’s absolutely critical that your album look as good as as it sounds. With decades of experience in this area, Christopher Jennings has the expertise and vision to ensure your album is professionally designed and to correct specification for both digital distribution and traditional compact disc packaging. Just think, your next release could be considered your best work to date, and among one of the most influential albums of all time.

ADVERTS & PROMOS

Everything you need to spread the word.

You need posters, postcards, and stickers if you want to promote and sell your new CD or DVD project. Design Joint offers tremendous deals on promotional advertising designs and printed marketing materials. I’m design-savvy and confident in the creation of assets for both Print and Digital Campaigns. From posters to backdrops, flyers to concert programs, tickets to t-shirts, your memorabilia will be carefully produced and technically sound. Stand out in a crowd of competition with branded merchandise, printed communications and digital graphics from Design Joint. Every design is lovingly crafted to influence your customers and impress your audience.

ART DIRECTION

Concept strategy and vision unity

From planning to completion, I’ll direct the overall style and appearance of your album packaging and/or project collateral. Ultimately responsible for the management of how your text and images communicate visually, and direct others who develop artwork or layouts. Need help translating desired moods, messages, concepts and ideas into imagery? Look no further. I’m experienced in helping resolve conflicting agendas and inconsistencies between various individual inputs too.
