Art, design and rebranding
Connan Henry-Madden of Manchester's Speak in Code has spent lockdown developing his skills in another creative field.
Words by: Connan Henry-Madden, Speak in Code, Manchester
When the world gets flipped upside down there are two ways to approach it; kick your feet up and enjoy the break or bite down and get to work.
Having this time away from being behind the bar I focused my efforts on progressing another passion - graphic design. Outside of the personal and external logo/branding projects we at Speak in Code really took this as an opportunity to up our game on everything. We've re-branded, finished our second menu, built a website and knocked out artpieces for inside of the venue.

An art piece inside of our clas'sic's section on our 2nd menu, showcasing a bartender spraypainting graffiti onto a wall in an oil painting style.
External client work for a grunge apparel company where the logo is both a skull and a mushroom cloud.
A social mark for a creative drink and food household which sparked during lockdown, documenting all of their creativity and sharing it with the world.
