Projects
  • Digital Publishing
    Digital PublishingDuring my time at The App Lab, my layout design contributed to many of the countries most popular magazines. These included fashion based names such as Elle and Esquire, to Entertainment and Food brands such as FourFourTwo magazine and BBC Good Food. Our brief was to convert the print edition to multiple platforms, these included iPad, iPhone and Samsung devices.
  • Gordon Ramsay Range
    Gordon Ramsay RangeGordon Ramsay needs an identity, packaging and promotion for his new kitchenware range. This should reflect his bold personality and also his high quality cuisine. The range will be a higher price bracket and be sold in stores such as John Lewis. Response: The ‘Gordon Ramsay Range’ represents the class and quality of Gordon Ramsay through elegant and sharp typographic solutions, Whilst at the same time illustrating hints of his bold, feisty personality. It was important that the packaging really represented the products they are used with, so I took inspiration for fruit and veg boxes and also tea bag packaging for the above examples.
  • Daily Mail Plus
    Daily Mail PlusEach day saw a different features section so adaptability was key within this job role. Tasks included re laying out pages to best fit the tablet edition and quick retouching to get the best out of images when viewing on a digital device.
  • Ziggy's Jazz Club
    Ziggy's Jazz ClubI was approached to generate a visual concept for new local jazz house, ‘Ziggy’s World Jazz Club’. I created a logo type for the club and various marketing assets. These included flyers, adverts, large format banners, digital banners and digital marketing resources.
  • Doco People
    Doco PeopleWhilst undertaking a creative internship at Doco I was given multiple projects to work on for Picture Box Films. This included multiple options for posters promoting the films of October. Using a recently updated style the poster had to inform and look clean whilst at the same time sticking to brand guidelines. Other work also included creating Facebook banner images and Twitter backgrounds, and experimenting with the companies logo.
  • Bata
    BataFor this task I was asked to create a homepage mockup and email concept for Bata footwear to visualise how I handled the brand and it’s digital identity. I kept the layouts clean and tidy to try and reflect the quality Bata have been providing for many years.

  • Mail Plus: an interactive daily edition for iOS and Android
    Mail Plus: an interactive daily edition for iOS and AndroidIn 2013 I was part of the launch team for Mail Plus, an ambitious, experimental daily format for tablets. It was my job to help convert the print edition into an immersive touchscreen experience, adapting and enhancing its content with fresh display copy, sidebars and in-depth picture galleries – all before the newspaper hit the stands the next day. For this I worked closely with a design team to maintain a slick, modern feel and with colleagues in tech to add interactive features in Adobe DPS.
