John Bellars

Celebrities, sofas and soda

The brief
An identity and ‘gallery’ website for photographer John Bellars.

The idea
John is an old-school photographer – i.e. as good in the studio as on location; and as comfortable shooting celebrities, sofas, soda, interiors, architecture or luxury goods. Integrating the right-angle ‘croppers’ into the JB typography created a simple but memorable logo. The website uses ‘old-fashioned’ icons as seen on 35mm transparency film, such as the left and right arrows on the thumbnails, which themselves echo the sprocket holes on film.

The effect
An elegant classic look & feel that fits John Bellars’ personality and skills.
