I am working as an intern at 2am designs to get to grips with the graphics side of marketing and advertising, as I am going to study graphics at sixth form in order to get an A level in it. I haven’t been involved with graphics before because it wasn’t available as a GCSE at my school so I was forced to take the closest thing to graphics that my school offered, which was art. Although I took art, a lot of my work was graphics based as I have been interested in graphics for a long time, from looking through graphics sketchbooks at A level standard and from doing my own research into it.Read More
Advertising campaigns that are led by a brand give the consumer an opportunity to ‘get to know’ the brand. What they look like, what their values are as well as how they act. Think of it as getting to know a friend.Read More
Sorry we haven't been updating this blog regularly. It may look as though we haven't been up to much in the past 11 months here at 2am Design. In fact it is quite the opposite.
We have been extremely busy here in the 2am Design office working on accounts for clients. Here at 2am it is very important for us to put our clients first and there hasn't been much spare time for blogging.Read More

Every birthday it's the same routine... At lunch the birthday boy/girl nips out to the shops and buys morrison's own victoria sponge and chocolate cake, and I'm not complaining, any cake is good cake. But I wanted to do something different!
So over the weekend I slaved away doing my new pass time... Baking.
Last night was one of the proudest moments in my professional career, I attended a presentation evening at Blackpool Sixth Form College in which the college's new brand was unveiled to fireworks and rapturous applause.
When 2am were approached to help the college with its new look we were more than happy to take the project on, not least because the college has seen all of our designers at some point or another, including myself; as such we have a great understanding of how they should be perceived and are all passionate about the college's continued success.
This time last year... I was getting my end of year show ready. I was putting final touches on projects, sticking vinyl on exhibition walls and weighing out sweets to bag and label as gift for prospective employers to take home. Although strangely enjoyable it was a highly stressful time as we also had dissertations to hand in, 3 projects to hand in, competitions to apply and enter as well as creating my own website, portfolio, business cards, interactive pdfs, mailers, CV, and on top of all that we actually had to find a job which in the end was the whole point!
After having my first week off (excluding Christmas) from work, I was apprehensive about returning. Being at university and having holidays galore coming back I always struggled getting into the swing of things again, with brain still in holiday-mode my work never seemed up to scratch. But that was no big deal, I had months on briefs and had plenty of time to redo anything that wasn't up to my preferred standard. This was different...Read More
