  • 36 Days of Type
    36 Days of Type36 Days of Type is an annual open challenge inviting creatives to express their take on each letter and number of our alphabet. My series presented here revolves around the theme of art and design history, with each letter being dedicated to a particular movement or technique, and numerals paying tribute to each decade.

    It's Not Christmas Without BudgensWell known as a local shop full of useful smaller items, Budgens wanted to make sure their customers think of them for Christmas essentials. They needed a modern look and a compelling message to set their offering apart from the more traditional competition.

My job at betahaus involved producing visual materials for current events and workshops, often I’d be able to get involved with the organisation or running of these too, so it was fantastic to see the relationship between my designs and the participants at the event. One example here is the August Maker Weekend, a mini-festival with a full line up of DIY workshops
