INTERNSHIP WORK

VICE MEDIA

VICE Magazine My role during my internship was mostly involved with creating promotional artwork for Palladium Boots to be displayed both online and for print for posters and billboards. The other aspect was creation of artwork for Noisey, the music channel within VICE that was involved with a lot of well known companies such as Philips and Samsung. I also designed various illustrator assets to be printed onto objects for the launch of a night called You Need To Hear This, in partnership with Noisey and Philips.

WHEN I GROW UP ShellsuitZombie

ShellsuitZombie X Lomography London As a member of non profit group ShellsuitZombie I regularly take part both in the planning aspects and design of their events and exhibitions. ‘When I Grow Up’ was a collaboration with Lomography in London and featured aspiring graduates. For this event I curated how the show would look and where artists work would be featured. I also designed the promotional posters for both print and web.

FRESH MEAT ShellsuitZombie

ShellsuitZombie ‘Fresh Meat’ Exhibition, London This exhibition was to pin point myself and other new members of ShellsuitZombie. 83 London, Jamesons Irish Whiskey, Oranjeboom and Propercorn sponsored our event and provided us with the sustenance to keep us hopping all night long. Slaughter House kindly gave us a space for all of this to happen and 55DSL are friends of ShellsuitZombie who regularly fund the magazine for print. Again I was put in charge of the curation of the night and in keeping with the motto ‘For grads by grads’ we held a competition alongside 83 London. ’A Grand for Grads’ - was a brilliant opportunity for all you designer party goers to be in with a chance of winning some money.
