John is actually the reason Blockstar exist. Our Lead Designer Dave has been working with John on various projects for almost 15 years now. They have many shared experiences working in Pop and Fashion publishing (they’ve art directed and photographed McFly, Busted, Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Miley Cyrus, er… Lorraine Kelly. The glory days of the early Noughties!) and worked on numerous agency projects together. Dave has also been responsible for designing and updating John’s websites and brand assets for, basically ever.
John brought Simon on board to put a solid SEO strategy together to boost his online presence, introduced him to Dave and that’s how Blockstar was formed. We realised that we could create great looking sites with a focus on layout, typography and brand identity AND build them with Simon’s extensive SEO experience. Simon introduced Dave to Kadence and they’ve never looked back.
So, thanks John.
John is always pretty easy with the design briefs he set. Simplicity and minimalism are key, as is a REALLY simple UX. “Let the photographs do the work; make me look cool.”
