Ask me anything   A collection of Graphic design work, created by yours truly.
One day brief.
After my work experience, I learnt that designs should be created quickly…. This is something I’m practicing.
This is a competition entry for Penguin Design Award, to create a book cover for “What A Carve Up” by Jonathan Coe.
It’s a simple design with typography (although, they’re probably after an illustrative cover!). This took me 4(ish) hours to produce and I only got this design with a few colour variations… I would like to practice working quickly again, producing many different designs rather than just one!!

One day brief.
Today we did a quick workshop on poster design, focusing on the grid.
The topic was our FMP. It needed a description of what the final outcome will be, alongside why it’s relevant/important. We were asked to source 15 pictures which inspired our subject [i found out afterwards we didn’t need all of them!] and use thes within the poster.

Here are some banner designs from work experience at Playgroup.

This is for an annual event and designs before were blue with a single colour representing each department. This year they wanted bigger pictures with more colours included.

Today was quite exciting… The junior designer wasn’t in, so I got one of his jobs!

The breif was to create an icon and typographic logo for Unilever’s human resources academy.

The brand already have a visual aesthetic which I needed to work around and incorporate into the new design.

At my London internship, the company designs a fair amount of work for Unilever.

This was a concept I created alongside the junior designer for a wall in Finance’s office.

The client was a female who loved pink, so it seemed only natural to use a pink and purple colour palette. The shapes are part of Unilever’s identity, so were a necessary deliverable. Half the wall also would be covered by a large table, so the top half was the only place the design seemed feasible.

The challenge with the brief came when the client asked if an ‘Ambition Wheel’ made by an outside company could be incorporated. I felt there were too many colours and the wheel itself took up too much room. I deconstructed the wheel and placed them in different sections, this made for much easier reading.

Updated my outsiders competition entry for Penguin design award.
The background wasn’t printing the way I wanted. I took a photo of an old leather jacket I had and merged in the blue rather than place it on top.
MUCH BETTER! :)

Today, I revisited a project from last year.
Basically…. I didn’t like it… so I changed it.
The previous design worked around censorship, so this aspect has been kept with the different lines. Although it has been produced in a less obvious way.
I am much happier with this design as it’s more ‘my style’.

Some initial designs for an upcoming event at the J’s Hospice.

The event is for an outdoor activity day at Marsh farm which is hosted by the Mayor. The challenging bit about this design was making it versatile enough to attract all the family, primarily with younger children.

Found this today in a random ‘year 0’ folder.
This was ‘book cover week’ based on “The old man and the sea”, which has had a variety of covers over the years. Clearly I never finished it, but I love how unafraid of illustration I was back then.
Good times! :)

Ticket designs for an upcoming event for J’s hospice.

— 5 months ago

Last week, I started some work experience at the J’s hospice, which is a charity based in Chelmsford for young adults with life limiting illnesses.

For my first task, I was asked to create some ‘certificate of thanks’ for companies which donate a sizeable amounts to the hospice.

The main aspect required for this project was an ‘injection of colour’ rather than the plain blue which they have now. The second and the third design certainly hold this in both a bold and subtle way with some chosen colours of orange, green and yellow added to the blue. The first design is a modern version of what they have now.

This is my competition entry for the puffin book award.
This story is based around different social groups in 1960’s America.
It seems that the characters in the story were discriminated again because of what family they were born into. This is what I tried to represent in this book cover, with a prominent use of the family tree.
