About me
My strengths as a graphic designer are best understood through appreciation of the diversity of my design practice. Having studied visual arts and psychology prior to graphic design, my work often considers design off-screen and in other dimensions. I pride myself in also considering the psychological impact of my work and using this to critically evaluate its strengths and weaknesses.

  • The Mind's Eye Project
    The Mind's Eye ProjectFor my final project of my degree in graphic design, I created ‘The Mind’s Eye’, which is an educational resource. It is aimed at engaging young graphic designers with ideas on how psychology influences the construction and appraisal of graphic design and how understanding theories and effects in psychology can be used as tools to help us succeed. Having studied psychology for four years prior to undertaking this course, my understanding of design has often overlapped with my understanding of vi

I was constantly encouraged to give my opinion on branding projects - whether it was regarding preliminary stages of conceptualising a new company or refining printing specifications for marketing collateral. We worked with the Project Officers, the Creative Manager and the Campaigns Team to come to collaborative agreements on the best strategies possible.

    Silver Capstone AwardRoyal Melbourne Institute of Technology (R.M.I.T)
    The Silver Capstone Award was chosen by members of the design industry in Melbourne along with my tutors at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. I was chosen based on my conceptual and technical approach to my final project. My project, titled The Mind's Eye, was based on the intersection between graphic design and psychology and was created to be a tool for young designers interested in creating more critical, purposeful design. I created a publication and a series of digitally-rendered graphic art posters, which each reflected my artistic interpretation of a relevant psychological theory.
