About me
I am a creative designer based in Norwich, offering versatile attributes amongst a breadth of fields. I work closely with Photography and Digital based mediums to devise my creative solutions. My work is heavily influenced by human emotions, movement, and architecture. I utilize dramatic textures to stimulate further depth and clarity to my work helping formulate character and personality.

Projects
  • High-Rise - A Modern Concept
    High-Rise - A Modern ConceptThese Poster Designs represent my analysis in response to the book High-Rise written by J.G Ballard. My focus relied heavily on contemporary and textural methods to devise unique concepts. I experimented heaviy with different approaches likewise with type and image to formulate responses with captivating personalities. I was deeply inspired by Vaughan Oliver's work, i looked closely how he applied texture and worked with composition to capture captivating elements.
  • Distortion
    DistortionThis was a personal project I was working on during my creative study at Norwich University of the Arts. I was primarily focusing on human emotion and character. I experimented thoroughly with fragmentation and distortion, this helped create a unique affect which provoked further personality and depth towards my final outcomes.
  • Digital Fragmentation - Album & Poster ReDesign
    Digital Fragmentation - Album & Poster ReDesignThis design was built upon human emotion and eradication. The broken elements and the use of distortion helped create movement. The application of dramatic texture and colour amplified this affect creating further intriguing elements.
