Designer duo launch new business

A DYNAMIC duo have launched their own business and are appealing for aspiring designers to join them.

Pete Martin, aged 22, of Winscombe, and 23-year-old Yatton resident, Sam Tucker, are the directors of Johnny Casio Design, a branding and creative consultancy.

Pete said: “We have been working on a number of small design projects and work is gradually building.

“We are proud of where we come from and feel there is a huge wealth of artistic talent in the area.

“We believe that talent can be easily wasted and many jobs don’t give people that freedom of expression that they are eager to unleash.”

The friends, who both went to Churchill Community School sixth form before going to university, are asking budding creators to come up with a design, using only one colour, and to send it to them.

The pair will then review the designs and successful submissions will be printed on T-shirts and sold online – with the artist receiving a percentage of the sale.
