  • Sacred Noise
    Sacred NoiseBrand identity, print and signage for Sacred Noise – an art exhibition at Christie’s. The creation of the identity was inspired by religious art and Christian architecture. In turn this inspired my approach to the materials. The exhibition book is cloaked in an extra fine linen and features a foiled colorplan tip-in in the shape of a window.

  • Christie's Lates / The Outnet Mirror Room
    Christie's Lates / The Outnet Mirror RoomA mind-bending, seven sided, kaleidoscope mirror room, that we designed and made with Kerry Hughes for fashion brand The Outnet. This was used to display designer footware at a "Christie's Lates" event at their Central London auction house.
  • Christie's Interiors Sales
    Christie's Interiors SalesEach individual sale that I work on I see as a mini project. There is a specific timeline that needs to followed, running from the pre-sale and cataloguing stages, through to managing paperwork and client queries before the sale itself. After the sale the timeline continues but in a different vain dealing with settlement and storage queries. Often dealing with the timeline and managing over 150 clients, the project can seem a bit like trying to spin plates, multi-tasking and not letting any of the plates drop. This high intensity atmosphere is something I particularly enjoy. With one sale finished the next starts almost immediatley again.
