About me
Graphic designer with an architectural background who is confident in typography and editorial design. Excels through critical feedback and collaboration with an adaptive approach. Key skills involve attention to detail through analytical drawings and layouts with architectural precision across all projects. Other design methods include conceptual hand-drawings and on-site research which is fuelled by raising awareness and intellectual curiosity for art, music and culture.
Projects
  • Building (ビルディング)
    Building (ビルディング)‘Building’. A modern take on hanging scrolls in Japanese typography using architectural graphics and rigid geometry to create bespoke lettering, representing the word ビルディング meaning building.
  • Colours of the English Premier League
    Colours of the English Premier LeagueMy project involved an information graphic poster representing all the fixtures in the English Football Premier League season for the year 2020/2021. The pattern was determined by taking each team’s club colour and pairing them together depending on who they were playing that round. I did this until every team had played each other which gave me a set of paired colours. The result was a unique predefined pattern which can be expanded and continued for future seasons. The posters could also re
  • Cell–19
    Cell–19Cell–19 is a commentary through data visualisation on the conditions and effects Covid–19, and beyond, has had on prisoners in the United Kingdom. The outcome resulted in four posters highlighting different aspects and conditions in a prison cell; size, time, movement and emotions. I created a prison cell-like grid that became the host for the information to be displayed. The challenge was to incorporate the different types of data into this cell-like structure, thus colour and shapes were us
  • United Nations 2030 Goals
    United Nations 2030 GoalsA typographic exploration where I was considering how the use of key words from the UN 2030 Agenda Goals could suggest semantic meaning. My concept was to first draw a list of visual drawings that symbolised each key word to the goals – this gave me a set of images. I then assigned the typographic elements of each key word to replace these images while still keeping the visual meaning clear. The outcomes of these semantic words became the focal point of the project and were displayed in a se
  • Tate B Typeface
    Tate B TypefaceFor the typeface I took inspiration from the mosaic floor pattern at the Tate Britain. I created a skeleton version from the black part of the pattern and this was used as the backbone for designing each letter. These were refined by hand through many iterations before finalising them digitally.
  • Kemistry Gallery Postcards
    Kemistry Gallery PostcardsIn this project we had to design postcards for a gallery using simple square shapes inspired by gestalt principles. My design approach involved physical experimentation and colour which was achieved by placing proportional coloured blocks on a grid driven by gestalt principles. I documented these in digital form using plans, elevation views as well as shadows. Through rotating, overlaying and scaling the digital formations I was able to achieve desired outcomes that held a strong grid and were u
