Hello! I’m a graduate graphic designer, interested in editorial & information design.

Voyager: Mission Overview

This project charts the paths of the Voyager spacecraft on their journeys to the outer planets, spanning four decades and counting. Designed like an operations manual, this editorial features easy to read infographics and comparisons of the mission’s achievements to previous attempts. Information contained within includes spacecraft specifications, discoveries and the legacy of the mission – both in terms of science and symbolism.

True Colour Politics System

Inspired by the popular “Political Compass” chart, this system is a tool designed to educate users about the political spectrum. Using print and digital, the system becomes an interactive discovery of the complicated world of politics by using familiar figures as an anchor, and unfamiliar ones as a point of reference for further research.

Animal Pictograms

A study on language, symbols and semiotics, this self initiated project aimed to discover something about how we communicate, and whether it is possible to have a universal alphabet. Crafting a set of pictograms to represent letters of the alphabet, this project focused on the power of recognisability.

Cooper Black Tribute Record

Aiming to represent a fairly unpopular or unattractive typeface and represent its best qualities, I looked to Cooper Black. A spotlight on the typeface’s beautiful flowing curves, it forces you to look closely – especially at the white on white inner sleeve. Envisioned as a jazz album, this concept emphasises the warm, flowing forms of the type and leads the eye on an unexpected journey not unlike the jazz genre itself.

E.M Forster "The Machine Stops" Postcards

A typographic reaction to E.M. Forster’s 1909 short story, The Machine Stops. To match the themes of discomfort and collapse, I chose an experimental approach focusing on type used as image. The postcard set consists of 30 typographic illustrations inspired by the content of the text, themes and characters. Designs resulted from either an iterative or reactionary approach.

Visual Systems

This project’s aim was to create a typographic 4 poster system advertising a fictional series of plays by Caryl Churchill. Working with strict limitations, a gradual iterative process revealed my final pieces. Themed on the balance of power, I built a 3D model to physically push type around – projecting my designs on top.

30 Days of Posters

Highlights from a 30 day poster challenge, producing one poster every day.

Reaching the Summit - Mortality Infographic

This interactive model and booklet set allows users to discover data about deaths on a range of dangerous mountains. Pieces can be removed from the plinth, and measured to uncover the contained information on mortality rates. The included booklet contains visual representations of the data for the purposes of prompting users, and also for comparison to the model.

Automatic Colour Prints

As part of a study on generative design, I created a system to automatically generate shades of colours depending on values entered, with 262,144 variations per entry. The end result was a simple mobile app concept that could generate 3×3 grids of colour swatches at request. Expanding the idea into an e-commerce venture, the idea is that these system generated unique prints could be made to order.

Winston's Diary - Type Rebellion

A study on typographic disruption within limits, using excerpts from Nineteen Eight-Four. As events change in the text, it resists the grid in one of 3 formats. Echoing the story, however, the structure is never broken – Big Brother still wins in the end. Winston’s diary reacts to the fear and repression faced by the characters of Nineteen Eighty-Four. Playing with a restricted half grid system, I looked to bring character to each page and event.

Metamodernism Zine

A zine based on the emerging concept of metamodernism, the successor to post-modernism. Situating itself historically, this publication is a short guide to this movement and its place in graphic design. The main purpose of the zine is a glimpse at contemporary post-modern graphic design to examine what is currently a visual trend, and how those may evolve in the future.
