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.Locked Pro Plan feature
During this experience, I was asked to reiterate the use of the technology google lens to solve petty crimes in London. In order to do so, a group of us designed a process that compared fake products with the authentic product.
Bestival have always been at the heart of the festival culture. After previously freelancing for them, I was invited to work as a creative crew member. This job title focuses on set design, signage, in-house design and design management on site.
During this experience my primary focus was to engage with a new environment and design a series of publications for two clients.
Bestival is a festival that is trying to become more green. Our challenge was to raise awareness and influence people to collect their rubbish and take their tent home. This was a 48 hour brief which developed a faster work pace towards design.
For our University, I redesigned the brand identity for the plastic museum, MoDip. This consisted of a series of leaflets, logos and experiments to modernise their image.
Through my University I was selected to document the event "Mission2020". The projects aim is to reduce the emissions of London by 50% before 2020 and eventually in 2050, London will be an emission free zone. My focus during this event was documenting it for social media. With the collaboration of Canon, I shot a series of photographs that successfully demonstrated the values of the campaign.
Although this process and work was confidential, the outcomes were a series of posters and publications to improve Virgin's network. This was a 48 hour brief that catalysed my interest into Graphic Design.
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.
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.
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.
Shortlisted for the +twenty4 project.
