- Reading Film Theatre BrandingFor this project, several contrasting marketing platforms were considered, such as the website and seasonal brochures. The concept was that of a flexible solution that considers the request to retain a multicoloured swatches theme. The logo reflects some of the shapes of the vintage-style projectors that were once used in cinemas, as RFT wanted to portray an element of their original appearance. The logo is animated on digital platforms.
- From Quern to ComputerThis project involved the illustration and designing of a booklet entitled From Quern To Computer, which explores the way that milling has developed from its invention circa 6000BC to the present day. The booklet and illustrations from this project were used to inspire a display for an exhibition at the Reading Museum (June - September 2017).
