About me
Hi there! I'm a 2020 graduate of Edinburgh Napier University, where I studied an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design. I currently work part-time at lululemon Edinburgh whilst I work on freelance projects. I have strong passions for fitness, design, video games and cooking.
Projects
  • Final Year Major Project - End of The LineFor my final year major project, I chose to study overfishing. My final piece is a series of 12 white polystyrene boxes, the same as you would find in a fishmongers. Each box contains artefacts I designed that tell a story about overfishing. The aim of these is to spread awareness and get people talking about the issue.
  • lululemon Community BoardsAt lululemon Edinburgh, I am responsible for the design of the Community Board, a floor-to-ceiling chalkboard. I update this monthly with the store's classes and campaigns that are coming up. Often I am given specific brand guidelines for events, so I must hand-draw the typography to match.
  • City Woof PackBrand design for City Woof Pack, a new Edinburgh-based dog walking company. The client wanted to incorporate dogs, the Edinburgh skyline, and a nod to his personality in the logo.
  • Crossfit Murrayfield MuralThe head coach of CrossFit Murrayfield in Edinburgh asked me to create a custom mural design for his second gym location. Together we decided to use his brand and a theme of superheroes, but otherwise I was given total control of the design. The image was drawn in Adobe Illustrator then projected on the wall, and finally hand painted.
  • University Degree Show BrandingOne of our last fourth year projects of university was to design the branding for our own degree show. Unfortunately due to Coronavirus the show will not be going ahead, but I was still able to create an identity around a hypothetical event. I chose the name 'Voila' to convey the flourish and finality of the show, with a logo created from the hand-drawn word.
  • Personal BrandingFinal year university project - branding ourselves. I chose to make myself into a video game character, full of enthusiasm and drive. I also used it to convey my passion for fitness, with an alternative Marge lifting weights.

  • Miller's Premium Scottish VodkaA speculative group project from Studio Contagious tasked with creating a Scottish Vodka for a specific market. Introducing Miller’s Premium Vodka specifically for the carnivals of Brazil. Our Vodka was inspired by the story of Charles Miller - a Scotsman - who brought football to Brazil 125 years ago. Now football is the national sport of both countries, our Vodka wish’s to celebrate this cultural exchange by bringing the next big phenomenon. I was tased with the creation of the bottle and grap

     - Edinburgh, United KingdomInternship
    In June 2019, I was an intern for two weeks at Studio MB, a graphic design agency. I participated in live projects and client meetings. I was able to see all sides of a professional graphic design job – from the 3D team to costing, 2D to project managing, the team at Studio MB were more than happy to explain each part and truly involve me. This really helped me to understand how different departments in a design office can collaborate on projects.
