About me

A Newcastle born, graduate graphic design student from the Sheffield Institute of Arts. My practice is driven by a ‘relentless inquisitiveness’ that is the connective thread in my work. With a strong interest in typography and print, I find myself focusing in on the smaller details of a design. As well as type, I aim to test the boundaries in terms of experimentation and bring a witty humour along with it. All ideas, for me, start with a pencil, a piece of paper and a good bit of research.

Work history

2017

Graphic Design Intern

Dust

Jul 2017 - Aug 2017
  • Sheffield, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • Dust is “a collective of individuals: designers, makers, do-ers, printers, artists, illustrators, musicians, writers, artworkers, developers, organisers, risk-takers, nomads, educators, learners, jokers, dreamers, environmentalists, citizens and philanthropists.” I spent two weeks working in the studio along side the team at Dust. I worked on the start of a large, open project which required a lot of in-depth research — as the project deadline exceeded my time at Dust, my time on this main project was spent collating as much research and developing ideas, visuals and directions that could be taken further by other members of the team. I also assisted with the design of two other projects that were both typography focused during my time there.
