Well it’s been awhile between posts - and I’m sure most of you will have picked up that Good Design Makes Me Happy isn’t posting any new work.

I started Good Design Makes Me Happy with the endeavour to create a visual diary of beautiful graphic design - and have done so, having blogged for over 7 years. Having been on a hiatus for the past year, I have made the extremely tough decision to stop posting on the blog. It’s been such a hard decision and a wonderful experience posting, interacting with you all, sourcing and being inspired by such incredible work from all around the world.

Thanks to all the lovely designers who created such gorgeous work for me to post on the blog. The content will stay live for awhile to stay as a constant source of design inspiration. If you ever want to talk to design, send me a message, you can find me on Instagram @hannahdollery

A hiatus... (Personal)

All good things must come to an end... Or not so much an end in this respect, but a break as such. Good Design Makes me Happy has been my personal visual diary for the last 7(!) years, and looking back on the archives makes me extremely happy, and so inspired.  But in saying that, I'm in need of a rest from daily blogging, to analyse where to spend efforts and energy.

The blog will stay online as it stands for a few months while I figure out its next steps, hopefully a bigger and bolder move, with some real care and attention put into a subject I love.

You can still follow along on my personal instagram - @hannahdollery

Ciao for now design lovers!

The Broadview Hotel Brand Identity by Blok Design

Nice branding for The Broadview Hotel, designed by Blok Design,
A historic architectural landmark with a lively and colourful past has been meticulously restored and reimagined as a luxury boutique hotel. The identity, which includes everything from wayfinding to in-room items to branding the different spaces to menus, balances the hotel’s new bold, contemporary voice with witty touches of colour and language in homage to the eclectic details found in the interiors and to the building’s down-to-earth, gritty east end roots.

EAT Furniture Brand Identity by The Colour Club

Love the typographic mark and beautiful colour combinations in the brand identity for EAT Furniture, designed by The Colour Club.
Eat Furniture are a contemporary furniture retailer with a focus on classic and striking pieces at an affordable price tag. Looking to breathe new life into a tired business, EAT reimagined their strategy and approached The Colour Club for an all-out refit on their brand. We set about creating an identity that complemented the sophistication of their new range, while allowing the product to shine. Playing on angles, patterns and textures, the EAT brand is built to connect with the modern, discerning customer.

Bethnals Brand Identity and Shop Fitout by Delivered by Post

Beautiful retail branding for Bethnals by Delivered by Post.
Inspired by fit, detail and the diverse cultural hub that is London, Bethnals offers the perfect fit in one unisex jean. A comprehensive project which included the naming, strategy and definition of the brand, all the way through to designing the identity, garment labelling, clothing details, packaging, corporate stationery and website.

We also designed its flagship store in the perfect heritage setting of East London’s famous Old Spitafields Market. We designed the interior layout, exterior signage, promotional campaign and partnered with furniture makers, Unto This Last to create bespoke, retail-focussed pieces to display the garments at their best.

Available to shop at Bad Denim, Pam Pam London, ASOS, and in the Selfridges gender-neutral department, Bethnals continues to be at the forefront of unisex clothing, delivering ‘the faithful London uniform’ to its customers.
