Silk iPad Magazine (student brief)
This brief involved choosing a title for a quarterly digital arts magazine, which features information on the latest trends in culture, art, music, photography, architecture, design, fashion and more. I also had to design a front cover and a vertical scrolling article. I chose the name Silk to reflect the high end and top quality content of the magazine, and used stylised fonts and a soft colour palette throughout. The magazine design includes interactive features such as scrolling galleries and slideshows.
The Silver Linings Playbook Cover (student brief)
For this brief we were asked to create something completely handmade for a print product. I'd recently read and loved The Silver Linings Playbook, which tells the story of Pat, who thinks his life is a film directed by God which will have a silver lining ending. The book ends with the two main characters lying on the ground with a cloud chart looking up at the clouds.
I wanted to create a broken and cloudy sky backdrop for this book cover design, to reflect the book title and the final scene of the book. I used watercolour paper and paints to create uneven textured paper, which I then used to papercut my design and build up layers to create depth in the sky. I hand drew the typography for the front and spine of the book so that it's in keeping with the natural and rough effect of the overall design.
Drinks Branding - Glug Milk (student brief)
For this drinks branding brief I chose to create an organic, healthy but most of all super tasty milk. This milk would be sourced from the best of British cows and packaged in small 330ml cartons as an 'on the go' drink. I wanted Glug to appeal to creatives and young families, who take an interest in their health, are willing to spend a bit more for better quality, and like to support small British businesses.
Footscray Community Profile Report
This brief was for a report following a census done every 5 years in Australia, focusing on the area of Footscray near Melbourne. The demographic is broad, diverse and generally time poor. I wanted to ensure the facts could be read quickly. I created eye-catching info-graphics and tables, using a simple but bright colour palette. The population of the area is a fairly young one, so I wanted an edgy feel and used interesting green images with overlapping typography for something a bit different.
Pink Elephant Spices Packaging (student brief)
For this packaging brief I chose to design a range of Indian spice mixes originally created in the Pink Elephant Cookery School in Jaipur. These spice mixes can now be bought in high end stores in the UK, and provide hassle-free, authentic tasting Indian recipes, perfect for busy professionals and families.
I did some ink drawings initially and developed some patterns from there. I wanted to create a vibrant brand with a clear focus on Indian design. I combined the patterned elephants with clean and simple typography to ensure the design remained modern.
La Fête Fashion Symposium (student brief)
For this brief I was asked to come up with an identity, name and brand mark for the Women's Wear Daily 2013 International Fashion Event, as well as to design a poster, a website and tickets for the event. I chose the name La Fête to give the four day event a fun and festival feel, which I emphasised with the use of hot pink watercolour typography. I combined this with my own black and white photographs of 'backstage fashion' shots giving a sense of the stylish and fun details of the fashion industry.
Cisco Corporate Social Responsibility Report (student brief)
For this brief I was asked to produce a report highlighting the company's positive impact on society, to be sent out to shareholders and interested members of the public. I was asked to stick to the brand guidelines, only use three of the brand's colours and no images. I wanted to create a graphic to hold and emphasise the company's statistics, and used this through the design to create an interesting and eye-catching report.
