Projects
  • Shelter — The Pledge Wall
    Shelter — The Pledge WallAn Interactive Installation at Shelter's 50th Anniversary Reception — The Pledge Wall had two key purposes: engage individuals in the audience and get them to show their support by simply providing their name. The result was the reveal of a powerful rallying cry, made stronger by the show of support from Shelter’s major donors at the event. Anthony Burrill showed interest in the project and a collaboration began! Moving Image by Max Smith

  • BoxHill Developments Ltd. — Branding
    BoxHill Developments Ltd. — BrandingI was approached by the founder of BoxHill Developments Ltd. to create the identity for his newly established construction company. — The starting point for the mark was looking at construction in its simplest form: a square or cube.

Working on an in-house design team challenged me as a designer to search for freedom and new ground within brand guidelines. Additionally, for the first time, during some projects I had junior team members under my guidance.
