About me

I am a Designer and Photographer studying at the Arts University Bournemouth. I have always been inspired by people and how we interact with each other in everyday situations and scenarios. Contact with other humans has always provided inspiration and stories towards my work, and opened up values of culture and heritage.

Awards

2018

International Society of Typographic Designers

ARTS UNIVERSITY AT BOURNEMOUTH (AUB)

  • I received an ISTD pass for a project named Gay. In my lifetime words have changed and developed meaning through generational difference. Gay is collated through a 3 part creased publication that discusses the underlying generational change of how the word developed into a derogatory meaning. Through this expression, ‘gay’ has been interpreted by a series of self-initiated interviews from each generation and typographically documented into a visual form. Due to the words vast change the publications undertakes 3 different executions. The 1st focuses on it’s initial etymology, 2nd on the open and clear connotations of the word and lastly the 3rd on the dynamic change to a pejorative manner. Therefore, ‘gay’ is a visual documentation of a word that has had a variance of change from it’s first introduction.

2018

  • Shortlisted outstanding for a Project called lifewire. Lifewire is a piezoelectric GPS chip to reassure people of being found during natural disasters. This is a current problem that is evident in natural disasters and needs to be adapted in order to save lives. The device uses sustainable source of kinetic energy in order to power a chip that provides your location and monitors your heartbeat.

Dorset Visual Arts Award

ARTS UNIVERSITY AT BOURNEMOUTH (AUB)

  • I was shortlisted for the Dorset Visual Arts Award for +twenty4. Throughout our life negatives tend to take priority with positives becoming hidden. This major project integrates psychology with design into a 3D product for counselling. The format uses 24 segments to relate to the an average amount of 24 sessions and is accompanied with the Barnum statements, a generalisation of positivity. This form allows the product to be universal for any individual and problem whilst also preventing negative associations with it’s unfamiliar polyhedral structure.
