Rame Days is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Melbourne, led by Manchester-born Nathan Day, a graphic designer specialising in Art Direction, Editorial, Typography, Branding, Illustration & Web Design. My approach to design is rooted in a consciousness of appreciating and celebrating the natural world. I tend to take a more hands-on, tactile and image lead direction, and embrace the chaos and beauty of nature to inspire intelligent Graphic Design. Guided by curiosity, my process is driven by curating imagery and content through collaboration. Experimentation, originality and voice take priority with every project. With the need for opinions and ideas to be spread through visual communication more crucial than ever, it is essential that design is present to push through exciting, beautiful and powerful messages. Currently working with creatives in the fashion, publishing and music industries, I also support and have a keen interest in working with climate-conscious brands, environmental action non-profits and brown/black-owned businesses.
- BiophiliaBiophilia aims to shed light on ecological issues both in the UK and on the intense and pressing scale globally; the term Biophilia is a hypothesis that attests ‘that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life.’ The work was created using a combination of imagery which was sourced by gathering loose detritus around woodlands and national park areas in Somerset and scanning images of the various flora. Alongside this are articles, sections taken fr
- Joel TellierJoel’s portfolio website needed to both showcase his diverse range of work, covering physical, digital, experiential and motion pieces, and represent the designer’s experimental ethos and personality. The content was curated to emphasise the strongest projects and visually categorised using colour-coded hover states in the primary colours - red for branding, blue for art direction, and yellow for motion. If a project fell under both fields, it was coded in the appropriate secondary colour or g
- Orpheus & MidasOrpheus & Midas embeds references to Greek mythology into its visual structure to reinforce the album’s narrative of the UK’s political landscape. The imagery itself depicts two Greek legends - Orpheus, who was considered the best musician and poet of all, and Midas who was famed for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold, including his daughter. Midas symbolises the greed of the Conservative party, whilst Orpheus marks out the band’s anti-establishment leaning and alludes to theme
- Can the Female Gaze Empower?Tinted wanted branding that reflected their inclusivity and playfulness. The combination of two typefaces, RANDOM and Inter, represented, crucially, the diversity which was at the core of the brand, and positioned Tinted as a bold and energetic force. ‘Can The Female Gaze Empower?’ was a Tinted talk hosted by Ronan Mckenzie, featuring a panel of some of the most exciting photographers of today- Harley Weir, Elizabeth Okoh, Yushi Li and Jameela Elfaki. This virtual event discussed new forms of
- Asterick RainThe theme of space and interplanetary travel is infused throughout the artwork for Asterick Rain, an EP about someone crash landing on earth. The custom typeface, designed to emulate the curves of crescent moons, used form and shape to express connectivity and interplanetary travel. The stylised image treatment, suggestive of an otherworldly being, feeds into an overall aesthetic purposefully crafted to allude to the galaxy or cosmos. This viewing experience harks back to the narrative journey
- Ell/eThe central component in this project was the strong blended brushstroke. It not only acts as a motif for the forward slash in the DJ’s name, but creates strength of direction and forward movement. This image was designed to be part of a larger asset library of brushstrokes varying in shape, size, colour and texture, which collectively aimed to highlight the variety and range of genres found in the artist’s sets.
