  • Dawn's Egg
    Dawn's EggOpen call platform for emerging DJs, it was designed as a democratising tool for the venue to give people more access to performing for the first time. The visual identity was aiming to look very functional, almost trade-like with phone number, email and other methods of connection. It took on some ravey styles from late 90s rave flyers, with the use of overprinting and scanning to create more distressed, tactile look on the images.

We create projects that intervene at different points of the artwork life cycle, from their creation to finding new homes for existing sculptures languishing in storage.

    Programming & CommunicationsGlasgow School of Art
     - Glasgow, United KingdomFull Time
    I led the programme and communications at The Art School, a cultural site based at the Glasgow School of Art. The site offered support for a wide range of artistic and musical practises, hosting gigs, clubs, films, performances, workshops, exhibitions and educational events. The programme met different registers, co-producing sold out shows with international artists, and developing more innovative approaches, seeking opportunities to explore how different art forms could intersect at the venue. I managed the communications of the organisation. As well as creating content for the website, delivering marketing campaigns, creating the visual language in digital and printed mediums, and directing this creative work from a network of artists and makers. A key part of this was community building, coordinating with groups of artists, organisers and stakeholders to help them realise their aims.
