Design Contract – Exotic Nights

Please Note: This post may contain items which parents would not wish their children to see – for this reason if you are at all concerned please read it through first or ignore this post. Thank you.


I was commissioned to build the website (including newsletter template) and create a new logo for the business as it grows from its humble eBay origins into a store that will have a reputation within the adult clothing industry. But adult not as in cheap tacky rubbish you get in cheesy magazines you might read – but high quality costumes. I would not agree to work for a company that sells tat as I don’t think it would look good on my portfolio.
The logo I designed went through a progressive stage build from simple drawings to the final thing – we have settled on this logo as we feel it suits the business and its future perfectly.

Exotic Nights Logo

The slogan at the bottom is a progression from the one that is a bit of a cliche in the industry ‘Dare to be Daring’ or ‘Dare to be Different’ this new logo and strap line should set the business apart and gives it a whole new and fresher look.

Along with this I was commissioned to produce a e-commerce site for the company so it would not have to continue trading on eBay in a full or total capacity in future due to spiraling costs. This is still in construction so I do not wish to disclose any information about this website until nearer the launch date.

However, in the mean time I have produced a holding site that links to the eBay store at current – this looks clean, fresh and modern as well as shows the corporate identity of the company perfectly. You will be able to see this new look now or very soon over at www.exoticnights.co.uk take a look.

Here is a screenshot of the website:

As the beady eyed of you will notice there is a newsletter you can sign upto this will allow the company to communicate to you about new lines of products and also when the new website is available to view. Accordingly I thought that the newsletter needed a sense of corporate identity so I created a quick template from all the newsletters to be based on (you can see this below) this will mean that Exotic Nights will have a professional impression on the customer and that emails will stand out rather than fade into the background.

Last of the True Men

I believe I am one of the few ‘true’ men to be around in this world. I am not saying that I am strong, or to any point ‘butch’ but what I do best at is when I am in a relationship (in one with my girlfriend for over 8 months) I know how to treat a woman right, and the whole aspect of love. Making sure that I keep my girlfriend happy and still want to settle down with her and I am solely interested it her. E.g. I am not looking at other women (i overt my eyes) at all, because I want to keep who I consider to be my true love. Happy.

What women don’t realise is that the quite shy man, is usually the one who will respect you and treat you as you should be and if you give them a chance they will shine. This is the same for my case, I am incredibly shy and when my now girlfriend gave a interest in me (I loved her at this point) I took it and we are happy together after 8+ months. She didn’t think that I could be such a gentlemen, but I never show it because before there was little if not no reason to do to it – once you have found one of the last gentlemen, you would be mad to leave them.

What I consider to be a true gentlemen and what most women would (thank you Molly I kind of stole some of your ideas):

  • They know how to love and respect women, and especially the women they are in love with.
  • They want to try for a long relationship and to make everyone happy and loved.
  • They do want to settle down, have children and get married.
  • And they only want to ever have sex or a relationship with one person – the first person they fall inlove with – it is near impossible I think for a true gentleman to cheat – as well as not wanting sex all the time, only wanting it when it’s wanted by both parties.
  • Considers whats inside the woman first, then the features on her face such as eyes. But hardly ever spends time looking actively at parts lower down, but does give nice comments about the woman’s whole body to make her smile.
  • Even when the woman is ill and not looking her best, the man will still comment to say she looks beautiful or a princess just to make her smile in sad times.

Why am I writing this post? Well I am just saying because my girlfriend has made me the happiest person in the world and I have made her likewise; and its just a little bit of advice to some women with bad relationship troubles out there.
