About me
Hello, and thank you for checking out my work! I am a recent graduate from Edinburgh Napier University with a zeal for design, especially if it involves motion graphics or designing brand identities. Through exploring the many avenues of Graphic Design at university, I am itching to get out there into the exciting world of design. When I'm not designing, you can catch me in the kitchen cooking up a storm, I love all things food! I am also a keen adventurer and have a great interest in history and historical geography. I love meeting new people, immersing myself in different cultures and can speak my fair share of Italian after travelling, learning and briefly working there. If you have any questions about my work or would like to work together on a project, feel free to fire me a message! Message me here on The Dots or you can me email at: Instagram: @charliebuchan.pdf

In this day-and-age, it is extremely sad to see that this stigma is still so prominent. For
  • A Song Stamp a Day
    A Song Stamp a DayDuring December of 2019, I decided to design a song stamp for each day of the month, whatever I was listening to that day. This resulted in a nice little collection of stamps that work both individually and when gathered together.

  • Drone Dining
    Drone DiningDesigned by both Charlie Buchan & Kelsie Baird, this animation was created as part of a brief handed out to our class by Whitespace and Business Gateway. We had 15 seconds to convey how graduates should choose Business Gateway to help them in kickstarting their own business. We wanted to put a surrealistic twist on our concept by having a dream vs. reality state for our animation –where, for Business Gateway, no idea is too out there. This involved our recent graduate dreaming of his busines
