I chose the children's book 'Goodnight Mister Tom', which tells the story of the relationship of a man and a boy, each with their own struggles, during the war. The brief asked to make this book stand out on a busy shelf, as well as on an online setting.

  • The Missing LinkThis is a publication showcasing an essay written by me, exploring how demographics are changing in the modern world and how design can help to bridge the gap between generations. The essay discusses issues within design such as digital vs print and designers such as Freddie Smithson (@freddiemade) and David Carson.

Each zine explores these issues through illustration and type in a playful yet informative way.
