For this project it involved following a brief written by D&AD which was based on creating an identity for the British Council’s exhibition, Dressing the Screen: The rise of fashion. The project involved designing invitiations, posters, some potential catalogue designs and the overall exhibition design.
Printing on Canvas fabric for the invitations and Cotton sheets for the poster I used the words fashion and film as my starting point for my development. I created a pattern by scanning in various materials which reflected the two concepts as a whole.
The finished design reflected screens, lighting and fashion design through the use of shapes.
Commercial Road, located in Portsmouth with its strong heritage, I have always found the location an interesting place to visit; particularly as I live near the area. Through this project I researched into how Commercial Road has evolved and changed over time, through the use of collage I tried to depict its development through the years in relation to the text.
A publication designed in response to three articles for the Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth. The brief specified to design a programme that worked with the given content, based on three artists who specialise in sculpture, painting and film.
"Dexterity" describes skill which especially involves the hands. I feel like the term relates to a wide range of creative artists and the people which show there work within gallery spaces like the Aspex gallery. I designed Dexterity, with the possibility of being a series of publications which could show case local galleries in Hampshire.
Each Spread was designed to reflect the artists work which featured within the publication.
This project involved making buying fish more appealing. I chose to create branding for a fish mongers. I used the craft of fishing and cooking to inspire my visuals for the brand. I took inspiration from the craft of fishing and how trawler men take pride in what they do. Relating the craft of fishing with hands on design methods like lino printing and screen printing. The illustrated wrapped packaging, relates to the way Fish and Chip newspaper is used to wrap the food. By wrapping the fish its a more personal way of selling a fish. It creates a relationship between the trawler man and his customers. The ‘Reel’ silver represents real fish caught by real people.
Outcomes- packaging, recipe cards, business cards and poster visuals.
The focus of this self initiated project was looking at unwanted objects; the things people no longer wanted. I created a campaign and book to question the value and the amount of consumption of these objects. Focusing on charity shops I looked for objects similar in type or nature, becoming interested in the characteristics in which these objects emit. By cataloging these objects I question what made them so desirable in the first place, showing their uniqueness. By focusing on the copy I created stories for these objects giving them each a personality of their own, to create more of a connection with the audience.
A collaborative project with Christiana Heckl, Victoria Cedeno and Yolanda Perez to produce the BA (Hons) Graphic Arts 2015 Degree Show Catalogue for Winchester School of Art.
The format was inspired by a photo album; an archive that is personal and reinforces the idea we are more than just our work. The catalogue not only features work, but visualises the personalities of each students personalities through the distinctive objects of their own choice.

For this project I was tasked with creating a typeface and type specimen based on a found grid. Using a guinea pig runs wire mesh as my inspiration, I used the hexagonal structure to form my grid. The grid was what formed my 26 character typeface known as Flexion or Flexed.
A folded type specimen was created to reflected my typeface which described the idea of manipulation and the condition of being bent like the mesh.
