STUDIO PRACTICE Statement of Intent
Brief 1: Herbivore Botanicals
Rationale: This is a collaboration with a graphic designer. I wanted to try packaging design to expand my skillset and challenge myself
Brief 2: Morley Mural
Rationale: I’ve always been interested in painting something on a larger scale and this brief seemed like the perfect opportunity, the fact that it’s for a children’s playground lends itself well to my tone of voice
Brief 3: T-Shirt Designs
Rationale: Another thing I’ve always wanted to do, make t-shirts. This is a self-led project where I want to design a small range of t-shirts theming around pop culture, while thinking of the audience as these would be to sell.
Rationale: This is a passion-project – given my interest in true crime and serial killers, I was interested in portraying darker, more meaningful themes without losing my tone of voice. Brief: Chick Flicks
As well as trying new things, I wanted to create something in an area I was already confident in.
