About me
Having originally trained as an architectural designer, in 2019 I pivoted my career to focus on graphic and digital design. My work explores the relationship between digital and physical craft and the overlap between the two, fusing my interest in digital design and textile based crafts.
Projects
  • S/S 21 Colour Card
    S/S 21 Colour CardThis colour card was designed for Unique Style Platform, a London based trend forecasting agency. Exploring four individual themes for Spring/Summer 21 this colour card was designed for trade show Pure London. The design is bold and graphic in style using unique typefaces which represent each trend.
  • Counterform Alphabet
    Counterform AlphabetBased on Futura, I have developed a new typeface using only the counterforms of letters and key lines. The design was laser cut in two parts from acrylic to make a printing block before being printed (pink) and over printed (blue) in letterpress.
  • 4 Living Brand Identity
    4 Living Brand Identity4 Living are residential property consultants, managers and developers. They are a start up company for which I developed logo and print collateral along with a detailed brand identity design guidelines.
  • Visual Language & Grammar Exhibition Poster
    Visual Language & Grammar Exhibition PosterExhibition poster for ‘Visual Language & Grammar’ at Kemistry Gallery exploring printing through sewing and colour mixing.
  • Typeface Classification Book Cover Design
    Typeface Classification Book Cover DesignThese book covers explore the differences between different font classes using the comparative forms of two fonts within the same class; namely modern, sans serif, serif and slab serif. I developed my ideas in letterpress creating laser cut blocks for printing the cropped letterforms using acrylic before printing, aligning and overprinting in the letterpress workshop. Each cover can be considered individually or as a whole to spell ‘TYPE’
  • Visual Summary
