This is the number 1.5 printed (with a very old printer) in Times New Roman at size 1.5. The print has then been rescanned and enlarged to reveal beautiful abstract colours. This highlights the discrepancies of black ink when printing and there is a little wonder in the world the closer you look.

I have created a sort of formulaic method to my repeat pattern making to enhance my final results. To test it I designed over a hundred patterns from the number one using this method and picked some of my favourite ‘ones’ for these prints.

A piece from my masters degree I am currently working on. Exploring the differences between a copy, a replica, a print and a reproduction.

The pieces are lazer cut into a card. Each layer is duplicated then slightly altered and enlarged to produce a different outline. These are then stacked on top of each other mimicking three dimensional pixelated type.

A two process print, using letter press and lithography with both processes being double printed so each poster is slightly unique.

The back of the business card contains a different part of a nautical map making each one unique with no extra printing cost.

We all enjoy a good curry on a lazy night. So it is paramount we keep the menus safe when we find one we like. Rather than keeping them stuck on the fridge or lost in a drawer I designed and made these books to keep hold of these little gems.

The type has been letterpressed onto cloth and then bound to resemble an old fashioned cook book, disguising the takeaway contents and blending discreetly into the bookshelf.

The most important thing to me as a designer is the production of ideas. I both love to admire them in other people’s work and love to express them in my own work.

A charity organisation which aims to make students more aware of how much paper they use during the years of they’re study.  Aswell as educating students on recycling and sustainability they ask for a one off payment of three pounds which will pay for a tree to be planted and contribute in offsetting they’re paper usage.

I was tasked with creating a campaign for particular fundraising events throughout the year. My main priority was to create a successful awareness campaign with out using using any new paper. The logo is designed to resemble a simple tree and type cut from paper, this is enabled us to use this further into the campaign easily.

We made flat – packed 3d mock ups of the logo using scraps of paper found at home and within university. We then photographed them in the foyer by the fresh fruit and veg stand, a landmark within the busy campus. The paper forest became part of a digital and viral campaign including information of the charity’s first event. This was shown on television screens already in place around the university and sent around social media links both personal and through established university channels.

The digital campaign was accompanied with a poster campaign. We took out of date posters mainly of popular student nights and lasercut the logo into them. We placed the hi-jacked postes around campus with the date of the first event to be held with at the campus by the fresh fruit and veg stand.

The guerilla style campaign creates a sense of curiosity and mystique making creating greater awareness of the charity organisation. In an age where people are flooded with information especially charitable appeals making it more and more difficult to create the initial level of interest. Using sites with in the university to shoot and existing posters which are familiar to the students helps make the campaign relevant to them. The first event is on the fourth so we shall see how successful the campaign has been.

Super nice brief for an amazing workshop in Devon with special guest New Yorker Brenda Ann Keneally sharing her storytelling skills both around the campfires and through the lens.
