Hello, my name is Euan :) I'm a happy and passionate designer recently graduating from Edinburgh Napier University and entering the great world of design. I have an immense interest in all things design, architecture, fashion and photography. Discussing and debating any range of topics is one of my favourite ways to get to know people and through these conversations I am constantly thinking about their possible applications and discourse through the lens of design. I really enjoy daydreaming, researching and gaining experiences about different cultures and languages. Meeting new people and having a great time is one of my enjoyments in life, and I hope to get to know a lot of you great people in the world of design soon!
- The Nation of Post-Environment: AntarcticoMajor Project: 2020 Welcome to the Nation of Post-Environment. A future government that rose from the ashes of the ‘Environmental Revolution (2053-2060)', where environmentalists across the world rebelled against capitalism, only to be decimated and outlawed following the victory of the Neo-consumerists. The glorious nation that followed strikes a deal with the last remaining oil corporation in the world, Antarctico, to secure the nations economy and continued consumption of excess through the
- (Hyūma) 飛馬: Personal BrandingEmbracing my middle name 'Hyuma' meaning flying horse in Japanese, I created my personal brand identity around my love for both graphic design and animation. The concept of the brand uses the work of Eadweard Muybridge, who pioneered stop-motion photography, famously capturing the movement of horses, birds and humans. Utilising his studies of a horse and a Red-Tailed Hawk, I have transformed them into a barrier-grid animation allowing for them to add an animated element to my graphics. Using t
- Antarctico (Part 2)The second part to my major project, following part 1. After presenting the artefacts from part 1 in a public exhibition, primary research had been gathered and the planning of my major project began to officially take form. Hereby presenting, Antarctico! The nations greatest endeavour. These works present a future government in the form of an Energy Manifesto, Government Research Document and a direct mail package. Written within the Energy Manifesto, the backstory to this future government is
- Antarctico (Part 1)This collection of work presents the early stages of my final year major project. These artefacts were created to gather primary information on the publics opinions towards the oil industry and to observe how they might respond to pieces of art and design that glorify the substance. Petrol makes the world go round after all... Along with explanations of each artefact, I have included small pieces of information showing my inspirations and references to allow you to see inside my head as I creat
- Le Petit Livre NoirAn editorial and book making project from my exchange semester at ESAG Penninghen, Paris. As part of my 3rd year 'Grand Project' I created a government handbook for LA RÉPUBLIC DE L'APRÈS-ENVIRONNEMENT (The Republic of Post-Environment). Modelled after the Little Red Book, this book outlines the key principles of this future consumerist utopia. P.S Every citizen is required to carry “Le Petit Livre Noir” and may be asked to recite passages at random by any officer.
- LA RÉPUBLIC DE L'APRÈS-ENVIRONNEMENTThis project was created for an exchange semester at ESAG Penninghen, Paris, as a third year 'Grand Project'. This world Imagines a future dystopian government, where the environment has been completely destroyed and freedom is a concept of the past. Taking visual inspiration from the 60s where affinity to oil was at an all time high and its provisions to fuel globalisation seemed limitless, this world seems to continue its use of fossil fuels with blissful ignorance at the direction of the gove
