About me
I love creating purposeful design, I’m obsessed with new technology and I adore the work of Wes Anderson a bit too much. I aim to be organised and minimalist in my design outcomes and hope this is portrayed in my portfolio. When I’m not designing, I enjoy skiing, when my bank account allows for it, surfing Reddit and experimenting with photography at every chance I get. I am very interested in exploring and gaining any insight I can into the creative industry andI hope to broaden my knowledge of Graphic Design, ensuring I become an asset wherever I work.

  • we see sound
    we see sound"mapping" an operation that associates each element of a given set (the domain) with one or more elements of a second set (the range). this is an experiment of mapping arts university bournemouth through sound. most commonly maps are solely visual not regarding any of the other senses, so we decided to explore mapping through hearing.
  • Sound Monitoring
    Sound MonitoringThis Sound Responsive code piece was developed as a way to monitor the sound levels of the university campus. Once the appropriate sound level was defined in decibels, the room was assigned a shape relevant to that sound level. The coding allows a laptop to monitor which shape level you are on, with the quietest levels detected making a triangle appear, and the highest sound levels making a heptagon appear. This was a collaborative project. My role was the coding and system creation.
