About me
I have recently finished my 4 years at Huddersfield University studying Graphic Design. My main interests within the subject are Branding, Typography and Print. My work follows an experimental and playful approach because I enjoy exploring new ideas and experimenting with different processes, bridging the gap between analogue and digital where possible. I like to challenge myself and collaborate with other creatives.

  • F*ck Your Morals
    F*ck Your MoralsResponding to a 'Speculative Futures' brief, I imagined everyone perceived as equals. I asked myself "What if everyone was on the same wavelength?" like having the same house, car, job role, income, etc... This could be seen as a paradise world to live in because everyone is equal, potentially causing no wars or conflicts. No one is better, or bigger, or more powerful. My artwork is based on the idea of people rebelling against this, wanting to be different and wanting more, therefore protestin
  • Laffa
    LaffaBrand Identity concept for Laffa, a Middle Eastern Street Food Truck based in London, which I completed whilst interning at Studio eNaR, Manchester (2018). The brief was to re-work the logo, produce an Arabic inspired typeface and create a series of Lebanese inspired patterns, with a hand made feel, to be used throughout their branding. I re-worked their current logo using lino and ink, fabricating a typeface with a hand-crafted texture. I created a secondary typeface intended for small print an
