About me
I am passionate about the way that literature and art have the ability to show a perspective that is wildly different to the onlooker's, in a way which is accessible and immediate. Because of this art is beautiful and necessary. I want to be part of adding to this openness, be it through writing a creative project, or my own artwork.
Projects
  • T-Shirt Design and Production
    I designed and organised the production of t-shirts for Will Fairhead's upcoming tour around Northern Spain called 'The Minor Tour'.
  • Director for 'Yvonne'
    I directed and produced a music video the alongside my sister, Zoe Gillett, to a song by Will Fairhead Zoe helped me bring my initial idea alive through her filming and editing. We worked together on creating the storyboard, and art direction in terms of outfit choices and colour correction of the final cut. We filmed the video just as lockdown began to lift, which felt particularly poignant given the song's message.
  • Album Design- Artwork and Production
    I designed the Album Artwork for Will Fairhead's Ep, and designed and organised the production of the physical CD. This involved designing the layout for the lyric book, cd, inside artwork, front and back cover, and ordering it from the cd company.
  • Website Design- Will Fairhead
    I designed the website for singer/songwriter Will Fairhead. This involved taking photographs and making drawings of Will and turning these into web-ready layouts to make up the site, as well as ensuring the website would be very easy to use.
  • Shackle Free X HG (me)
    I made a piece of street art whilst Shackle Free played a gig on the roof above me. The event was free for the people of Camden to enjoy. The piece was a response to Shackle Frees music and message... I also coordinated a music video to be produced whilst the event took place, this is currently in the editing process...

    'Hear' RecognitionThe University of Edinburgh
    Received awards for ‘Implementing Change’ and ‘Communication Skills’ whilst being a class rep. Probably the highlight of my uni career was actually managing to get a petition (which advocated to spread out an originally very tight exam schedule in order that students doing joint honours, or who needed extra time from being disadvantaged) voiced, heard, and acted upon.
