About me
I take inspiration from the natural and urban world, different cultures and people trying to make the world a better place. I also believe that whilst design should be beautiful and functional, it should also have personality and should engage with interesting and diverse content. I’m fastidious, articulate, diligent, hard working and always looking to help out so will muck in anywhere when there’s a tight deadline.
  • Mess Magazine - Issue 12
    Mess Magazine - Issue 12I worked with the Creative Director and Editor in Chief of international fashion brand 'Mess Magazine' to produce a brand new layout for Issue 12. The idea of the new issue was to promote sustainably conscious fashion and included articles and interviews with top fashion and design influencers and CEO's.
  • 'The Vault' tattoo shop
    'The Vault' tattoo shopI was asked by a company who produces shop signage to create a sign for one of their clients. The brief was quite open and the only things I had to adhere to was that it had to have a black background with gold as the main colour, be quite traditional and incorporate floral elements. This was a lot of fun to put together and the finished design took a total of around 8 hours to complete in Adobe Illustrator.
  • Bold Humanist Magazine
    Bold Humanist MagazineThis was a self initiated design project, bringing together stories and reports unveiling life for the people of North Korea under Kim Jong-un’s reign. Human rights is an issue close to my heart so I wanted to create a project that combined my love for revealing rarely reported, truthful stories, but also for editorial design. I believe that design plays a vital role in communicating powerful stories to the viewer. Adding personality to my work too gives the target audience a further emotional
  • Summer Cave book covers
    Summer Cave book coversAs I'm pretty much a self taught graphic designer, I decided in 2016 to enrol in an online graphic design diploma. One of the projects was to produce 3 different styles for a book called 'Summer Cave' along with promo posters. It's a story about 5 teenagers who find a cave on the beach that leads to a mysterious world. The book was to be aimed predominantly at teens and young adults.
  • Shennong Tea Packaging
    Shennong Tea PackagingThis was another diploma project. The brief was to create the logo and packaging for a range of three herbal teas aimed at the retail market that would stand out against the competition. The demographic was predominantly female and health conscious.
