This is Justin. He’s a photographer, and an old friend of mine. He used to shoot news (he was Nikon Press Photographer of the Year in ’97) and covered a lot of conflicts, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. He loves it there, despite all the horrible things that happened. These are some of the pictures he took during that time:

You can only be a war reporter for so long, and when it was time to change he moved on to photographing cars. He also loves cars.

When he asked if we would make a logotype for him, and help design his portfolio, these became our starting points.

The logotype developed from these two lives, and hopefully reflects Justin pretty well.
