  • Around The CornerAround The Corner focuses on encouraging appreciation of corner shops, aiming to highlight their value to both local communities & to British Culture. The book consists of a series of photographs from various corner shops in Bournemouth, a collection of responses from customers explain the reasons why people shop in their local corner shop, what they buy & the memories they have associated to them.

In addition to the T-shirt design, I also designed the label & a thank-you card that will be sent with every order.
