World Conscious Media Group Pty. Ltd.

I was asked to create a logo for a new company called World Conscious Media Group.
The business comprises of a range of things including Publishing, Distribution, Events, Management and Productions; all within the holistic/spiritual industry.

  Firstly I came up with an icon...

... then added the business name, using blue circles as the 'O's', 
so that if need be, just the text could be used on it's own, but still have impact


Below is an ad I designed to appear in Veritas Magazine.
It lists the sub-companies with an explanation of what each do. 
The button icons were also created for this ad and possible future advertisements.


World Conscious Productions is one of the sub-companies of World Conscious Media Group Pty.Ltd.. This is an example of the logo used for the sub-companies.  


Below is a DL flyer to promote the Online Distribution opportunities
of World Conscious Media Group



 
Deb Webber
 
World Conscious Productions are presenting celebrity psychic  
Australian Tour.

 I was given a photo of Deb (left), and came up with a design that would be carried 
across all media for the tour, including flyers, posters and tickets.
The above DL flyer was the 'teaser' advertising.

The next round of DL flyers were state-specific.
The above example was the one for New South Wales, Australia.
They included a 'logo' for the tour name Whispers From Heaven
as well as specific dates, locations and other information.

I have designed several advertisements for specific sites around Australia.
The above ad was a teaser ad for the World Conscious Productions website.

Above, is the design for the tickets for Media, and VIP's

 Fortunately, I was given VIP tickets to Deb Webber's show, and got to meet her personally.
The show was fantastic, she is truly gifted. 

"Bless you Darren, and thank you for all your help on past, 
present and future adventures......"

Don Tolman
 
World Conscious Productions are also presenting American natural food specialist

I was given a photo of Don, and came up with a design that would be carried across all media for the tour, including flyers, posters and tickets. 
This included a 'logo' for the tour name.

The above ad was a teaser ad for the World Conscious Productions website.


Helen Paige
 
At 2011's MindBodySpirit festival in Melbourne, World Conscious Media Group 
(in association with Barker Deane Publishing) presented  
Medical Intuitive and Author, Helen Paige.


I created the above banner to promote that Helen (pictured) would be performing Medical Intuitive Readings at the festival, at the WCMG stand. It also acted as a divider wall, to section off the area she was doing the readings.
