About me
A recent graduate from Falmouth University with an MA in Graphic Design alongside running my own studio. The new plan…avoid feeding the folder of shame with more of the same and source, join or create my own design-led projects, the kind of work that would make your mother proud. Now, where to start…?
Projects
  • Cycling Revolutions
    Cycling RevolutionsA project with cycling at its centre and the changes that cycling can bring. It’s not about fitness, fashion or fads but people, their lifestyles, and the causes they believe in. To get the full effect of the difference cycling can really make, you need to feel it; you need to connect; you need stories. The outcome is an exhibition with a focus on change.

  • Shrewsbury Market Hall: A Day in the Life
    Shrewsbury Market Hall: A Day in the LifeA journalistic ‘current history’ of life inside the love-it-or-hate-it 1960s brutalist style Market Hall building in Shrewsbury. A record of the day-to-day from inside the 1965 landmark with reflections and opinions of the people there.

  • Public Opinion
    Public OpinionEveryone says they love the town of Shrewsbury, we wanted to find out how true it was, just curious. So we surveyed it for opinions about the place, just asking two simple questions: What's the one good thing about the town? What's the one bad thing about the town? We wanted people to be curious too.
  • Shrewsbury Design Festival
    Shrewsbury Design FestivalInsight: There are artists communities in a lot of the different areas in and around the town but no specific design community; nothing to bring web, film or graphic designers together. Perhaps there’s a feeling of community between artists due to shared workspaces and permanent places to exhibit? Some of these groups have open studios or arts-week events, the larger venues offer spaces to host workshops, life drawing classes and craft fairs. A community between designers would bring more colla
  • Photobook: J. Batey | Violin Maker
    Photobook: J. Batey | Violin MakerI was invited to take photographs of the stacks of cases, racks of instruments, tools and magazines, so long as I didn't interrupt . Julian served his apprenticeship in Washington with Barry Oliver, a graduate of the Cremona School of Violinmaking. After working with Rafael Carrabba in Seattle, he returned to work with his father in North Shropshire, an internationally renowned expert & dealer. The book titled "J. Batey | Violin Maker" captures the atmosphere of the workshop, filled with case
