About me
I am a creative and inquisitive problem solver. Driven to create unique communication that serves purpose and style. I have passion for gaining knowledge from all aspects of life that I can apply to my methods of process and decisions. I enjoy focusing on 3D fundamentals to produce a conclusion, enabling the materials and process to support the notion of the work.

    Compass Point Primary School WayfindingA 2 person collaborative project to introduce a sufficient wayfinding system for a multi-lingual primary school.

We have also produced a inter-changeable functionality to keep up to date with the changing of classrooms and purpose of spaces. The school had a low budget which we kept aligned to by making the signage ourselves with CNC routing, woodwork and screen-printing.
