Goodbye Destill, hello StudioMH

Cast your mind back to 2006, I had decided to give myself a new online alias, 'Destill', the previous name 'xpose' just wasn't cutting it anymore. It sounded like 'expose' and gave off the wrong kind of vibe.

After just about 10 prosperous years I found myself wanting something more with how I presented myself and my work. I had also amassed a whole new body of design work which I wanted to get out into the world. After months of indecision I landed on 'StudioMH'. The MH stands for my initials. Clever I know...

The reason for the change is that I felt I had moved on from using an online alias. I had grown up and reached a time in my life and career where I wanted to present myself in a more professional way, and create and launch something towards my future goals.

An initial phase with the rebrand was to create a new logo. At the time I was a big fan of monograms and so did a bunch of exploration around combining the M and H. Before I knew it I had around 10 logo's in front of me, all of which I liked. I decided that rather than just choose and have one, i'd aim to make 25. I'm currently working on a special project to showcase them all in an interesting way, but more about that this year.

So after about 2 years with a super exciting holding page, you can now take a look around the new site and all the new work. I'm not one for shameless self promotion, but feel free to share the site with your friends / show your cat etc. Enjoy!
