Kyle Robertson is a London based designer and (as he so boldly states) a shameless self-promoter. He has recently gone through a process of rebranding in order to re-establish himself in the design community and present himself in a more professional and appealing way. This goes on from his logo to website, with everything carefully planned and executed fantastically.
As for the self-promotion part of it, he has designed his portfolio in the format of a newspaper tabloid. He compiled his eight strongest projects and then displayed images alongside important information about them, from approach to planning to product. The projects are all very different in order to show off the extent of his work across several disciplines.
Each copy was individually signed, numbered and sealed. The portfolios are then packaged in a personalised Japanese kraft envelope along with his CV.
The quirky way in which he has executed his ideas is definitely eye catching, and the small touches create a very personal atmosphere with the audience.
