About me
I am a London based Creative with good design and problem-solving skills. I hold an award from the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) thus making me a member to the society. My expertises are within print design which includes publication design (spreads and cover), poster design, brochures, leaflets, infographics and business stationary design. I further experiment within the digital design such as wire-framing & website design, banners and social media graphics.
Projects
  • Type Figures — Exhibition Design
    Type Figures — Exhibition Design'Type Figures' is an exhibition design on the development of typography. Using a range of environmental interactions and digital platforms the exhibition explores multiple aspects within the subject area, such as printing technologies and letter-forms. Each room within the proposed exhibition space contains either a physical or screen-based interaction. The screen interactions within the rooms are to engage users and supplement the understanding of the information displayed within the physical
  • Ulysses
    UlyssesThe premise of this International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) brief was to take a one sentence monologue, consisting of 4,391 words, and visually interpret the text in an innovative manner, to draw the attention of the reader, to engage them with a complex work of writing. This daunting piece of text, ‘Penelope’, is a stream of consciousness thus containing no punctuation and possible areas of grammatical mistakes. My approach to this brief was to create a publication where I would
  • Diversity Project
    Diversity ProjectThe Diversity Project is a ‘representation of information’ brief response. The purpose of the brief was to give users a visual insight into the diversity of cultures within the University of Westminster's student body. A key approach to the project was the analysis of extensive information, and the translation of this information into graphic form. The informational material used related to five faculties within the university and the project led to a visual exploration of participating studen
  • London Venture Crawl 2020
    London Venture Crawl 2020The ‘London Venture Crawl’ takes students from universities to embark on an entrepreneurial journey. The Universities Creative Enterprise Centre set me the task of creating a set of infographic poster to promote the 2020 London Venture Crawl. Upon receiving the brief, a set of brand guidelines were provided to ensure that the design produced meets the requirements. The main feature that my client wanted was to have a design which contained a line which shows each destination which would be vis
  • Open Day 2018
    Open Day 2018The ‘Open Day’ project was designed to promote the Media, Art and Design campus at the University of Westminster. The direction I intended for the project was to design a playful poster, which spells out ‘OPEN DAY’ using geometric forms. Accompanying the poster is a short digital interaction which allows the user to go through each screen. As the screen unfolds, a piece of information is provided such as the date, time and venue of the event.
  • Typographic Reference Book
    Typographic Reference BookThe typographic reference book is a publication in response to the ‘typography and communication’ brief. The purpose of the brief was to gain a better understanding of typography by ordering and formatting text. The place holder text used is ‘Experimental typography and the need for the experiment’ by Wim Crouwel. The experiments carried out were type size & weight, leading, kerning & tracking, justifications and paragraph setting. To make the publication more engaging, I have designed several
