Design: New Hosking Industries Business Cards

08 Aug

Not news exactly, but we thought we’d share our new business card designs with you. Since we haven’t updated the design in almost two years, it seemed high time to give things a freshen up. We’ve got two different designs this time: one that’s motoring specific and another that’s more general in focus.

Contact Hosking Industries today for an obligation-free quote on your next design project. Nothing is too big, or too small!

Logo Design: Woods & Woods Motor Car Co.

18 Jul

Hosking Industries recently created two new logo designs for Woods & Woods Motor Car Co., based on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. The client requested Art Deco design styles for both logos, as their primary stock in trade is the restoration of pre-war vehicles and the creation of bespoke 1930s-style phantoms. You can see the entire gallery HERE.

With the deadline to the 2013 MotorEx fast approaching, it was a rapid process of drafting and proofing, before also designing the company’s MotorEx display materials, business cards and fliers. The business cards will feature a three-step process involving both spot UV coating and spot foil application.

If your business is in need of a new logo or you have run out of business cards, feel free to request an obligation-free quote! And be sure to check out the Woods & Woods trade stand at this year’s MotorEx, starting tomorrow, July 19, 2013. While you’re there, be sure to visit The Chop Shop and Ziggy’s Hot Rods stands and pick up one of their posters, with photography also by Hosking Industries!

We Made a Book! Automotive Photography: The Story So Far…

20 Nov

Hey everyone, just a quick note to show you a preview of our first photo book, self-published through We really only created and printed a few copies to satisfy ourselves and have a record of the first 12 months of feature car work on our bookshelves; but thought that perhaps, by some stroke of miracle some folks at home might like to own a copy as well. So, we’ve made the book available for purchase via the Blurb website.

Given the fact we ticked all the premium options to make the book look and feel its best, it isn’t a cheap tome, weighing in at almost AUS$200 posted to your door, the 160-page book will probably only interest the owners of the 39 cars featured. But having a sneak peak won’t cost you anything!

Here’s the preview, giving you a look at around 30 pages of the book. We have shot almost 100 cars and bikes in the 12 months since Hosking Industries began doing this line of work, but selected 39 of our favourites. We hope you enjoy the preview and if you’re interested in purchasing this hard cover, bound book, there’s a button for that on the preview, too!

Design: Hosking Industries’ New Business Cards

Hosking Industries' Business Card

Hosking Industries' Business Card

This is the design of Hosking Industries’ new business card for our photojournalism services. We’ll be revising the design regularly as the pile runs out, updating them with other examples of our photographic work. Our original card design didn’t use any photographic elements as we hadn’t started shooting cars as our business yet – plus we were wanting them to represent not only photography and automotive journalism, but graphic design, copywriting, web design and much more as well.

We reckon this design kind of covers all the bases and shows off some of our design skills at the same time. Hope you like it and we hope we get the chance to hand you one of them at some point, too!

Hosking Industries offers commercial and private photographic services, specialising in the automotive and music industries. Even if you don’t think your car or bike is good enough for a full feature in a magazine, we can still shoot your pride and joy just as if it were going into one; making it look as glamorous as the vehicles you see in print on newsstands all over the world.

BLISS Custom Engineering's New Logo

Here are some samples of the new logo and business card design we created for Queensland business BLISS Custom Machining. The client wanted something simple but memorable that they could machine into their custom jobs. We took that inspiration and tried to design something that looked like metal. Also displayed in straight red, white and black are some alternative options we drafted during the design process.
