Look! A Singh! Rebrand

In January this year I asked my friend and Graphic designer Ross Edwin from Regraphic to come up with a new brand for Look! A Singh.  I wanted to move away from the current logo "The Singh With No Eyes" - (No one actually asked me why he had no eyes, which I thought was strange).

The Singh With No Eyes, was a Purchased logo from iStock and it served me well.


The brief for the new logo included the following:
  • It must and always positivity represent Sikhi and Turban Wearing Sikhs
  • I would like to be able to change the colour sceme from time to time during certain events
  • I want something thats not too different from the current logo but it had to be new and exciting
  • It must include a Sikh Turban.
  • I would like a Fifty as the current logo does.
Ross got to work and quickly got back to me with this initial sketch

I absolutely loved the concept.  The turban was great with the eyes representing a Singh looking.  I wanted to ensure that Turban had it's own unique style as all Sikh Turbans do.

The Final Design

The final design is perfect.  The blue and yellow is customisable and I love that the turban is easily recognisable and different variations of the logo include...

World Cup Turban

St Georges Flag Turban

German Flag Turban

Paisley Design Turban

The logo had exceeded my expectations and all credit goes to Ross Edwin from Regraphic

Look! A Singh! Website Updates

Look! A Singh! has been running for just over 2 years now and I've been working on some improvements to the site.

Look and feel
The site is now cleaner with much clearer fonts making it feel fresh, vibrant and modern whilst retaining some of the style of the original theme.

One of the biggest issues I had with the old theme was with the menu system being so limited. The new site menu is slightly smaller and it now includes drop downs making it feel less like a blog and more like a fully functioning website.

Responsive Design

These days, if your site isn't mobile optimised then it's going to get left behind. There are various ways to make a site mobile friendly but I've opted for a responsive theme as all functionality is kept and just rearranged depending on the device you're using. It looks pretty good too!

Happy Balentine Day 2014

Roop Singh Beats The Banker and Takes Home £250k

On Thursday 16th Jan Twitter user @mjar sends me a picture of the awesome Roop Singh who is now a contestant on Deal or No Deal.

but this isn't the 1st time Roop Singh has been on TV, he was featured on To Buy or not To Buy in July 2012 with his wife Surinder (via Sukhwant Lota)

So I start to follow Roop Singhs progress on Deal or No Deal and capture a picture of him in every show (here)

24 shows later....
I'm sat at work and my phone starts buzzing with people on twitter informing me that it's Roop Singh's turn on Deal or No Deal.  I was expecting his turn to be sometime this week as he had already done 24 shows but you never really know.

Roop then proceed to play a brilliant game with nerves of steal and finally he turns down an offer of £46,000 and is left with 2 boxes - £500 and £250,000 -  he won the jackpot of £250,000!!
Immedeatly after winning he was featured in The Mirror Newspaper

and gave this interview

We wish Roop Singh and his family all the best for the future and feel free to follow him on twitter @RoopDonD
