Projects
  • FLIPSIDE
    FLIPSIDEA virtual degree show - I won the initial pitch to do the branding and promotional design for the 2020 Graphic Design degree show at Manchester School of Art. My concept for FlipSide came from a personal experience of not feeling represented in the design industry, after I had noticed the lack of diversity in studio teams when they came to visit. I wanted to use my degree show as a platform to not only celebrate our third years but also to tackle important issues in the industry such as diversi
  • Topshop/ Topman Christmas Confessions
    Topshop/ Topman Christmas ConfessionsLighting up the fact that most christmasses don’t always go to plan. Things go wrong but it is okay and hopefully we can look back and laugh about it. Using light humour to entice the audience through the idea of expectation vs reality, my Christmas campaign aims to unveil all the relatable and quirky festive happenings.
  • 1xBlue
    1xBlueThese shoots aims to shift the perception of women’s football, a sport that is widely seen as a “man’s sport”. I want to exhibit the fluidity of feminity; playing women’s football does not reduce one’s sense of being a woman. You can do both.

  • Lashan
    LashanA project aimed to offer a more nuanced perception of black masculinity. Photography has the power to subvert stereotypes and misconceptions of particular groups or people. I wanted to subvert the toxic western narrative and historic depictions of black manhood that seek to criminalise and exploit them. Inspired by the Black Cowboys in the American West, I hope to express more sensitivity and vulnerability of black men. Photography and styling by Jada Giwa Art Direction by Lydia Jones Parry
