  • Museum of London + Borough of Culture
    Museum of London + Borough of CultureThe Museum of London decided to collaborate with with Waltham Forest and offer the hoarding as a space to highlight the character, diversity and cultures of the borough. Focussing on Whipps Cross Hospital (which has the largest maternity ward in Europe) we captured Waltham Forest's first Borough of Culture babies, through their empowered mums. These babies were due to be born in the borough during the year long celebration. Photography by Lucy Alex Mac. Concept & Art Direction by me whilst at

  • Karma Cola – Christmas Campaign
    Karma Cola – Christmas CampaignWe helped Karma Cola launch their Christmas campaign along with their first ever set of London Underground posters. We decided to bring the culture of Sierra Leone and the message of Karma Cola to London whilst also subtly showing a different side to the Christmas that a larger cola drink company shows us. The image is a painting of Chief Hindowa Kamara, Chief of one of the villages that grow and farm Karma Cola’s Cola Nut. In addition to our Underground posters we created a series of custom c
  • Emma Magazine
    Emma MagazineEMMA celebrates the creativity of the people connected with the historic Arlington House – a homeless hostel in Camden Town, London that opened in 1905. Each issue showcases artwork, illustrations, articles and poems that bravely explore a range of difficult experiences related to being homeless.

  • Esporão – A Fresh Perspective Campaign
    Esporão – A Fresh Perspective CampaignAssobio's grapes grow from high-altitude slopes in the middle of the Douro Valley. Whilst the Douro Valley is world-renowned for its wine making and its distinctive landscape, Assobio's vines, unlike others, grow in vertical lines instead of horizontal. Their unique setting gives Assobio its distinctive fresh taste. For this campaign we visually interpreted Assobios 'unique perspective' of high altitude, vertical vines. The campaign was used across OOH, print, online and social media. It for

  • Karma Cola – Donald Trump Campaign
    Karma Cola – Donald Trump CampaignKarma Cola's philosophy is 'What Goes Around Comes Around'. If you do good, good comes back around to you. But, what about those who could do better? Donald Trump's first visit to the UK as President in July 2018 was to be met with vociferous protest and a media frenzy. To conincide with this, we created a social media campaign for Karma Cola which spread the message that ordinary people have collective power to influence those in charge to do good things. Using a Donald Trump impersonator and
  • NRW Forum – Market Research Campaign
    NRW Forum – Market Research Campaign"17% of people don't know the NRW Forum." The NRW Forum is a museum in Düsseldorf. The museum doesn't own a collection, instead it offers home to ever changing art exhibitions. The had conducted some market research to see why awareness of the museum was low.
