TAXONOMY

BRIEF To collect thirty similar objects and create a body of graphic design from this taxonomy.

APPROACH After choosing to use my collection of vintage maps, I decided to create sample booklets that would show the most interesting features of the maps.

METHOD Each booklet was printed on card, with eleven pages, each hand cut. The booklets are bound with a split ring and were named the Macfarlane Collection after the previous owner of the maps. There are thirty booklets in total.


FINAL COLLECTION


MANIFESTO

BRIEF

To create a manifesto that reflects you as a person and your graphic practice.

APPROACH

I took inspiration from famous manifestos such as the Claes Oldenburg ‘I am for an art that’. This led me to focus on particular quotes that inspired me to create my manifesto.

METHOD

I initially started creating ‘I am for design that’ posters which featured different phrases on them. However I then adapted this after listening to Barbra Streisand’s famous song ‘Being Good Isn’t Good Enough’. This became the mantra of my manifesto. I then moved on to creating a booklet which featured all of the points of my manifesto, including a set of postcards with inspirational quotes on them.


STRIVE

BRIEF

D&AD Tell don’t sell - make your mark. A New Blood brief which focused on exploring a personal story or journey.

APPROACH

I decided to explore a personal sporting injury that I suffered during the peak of my sports career. I wanted to recreate the emotion that accompanied the injury.

METHOD

I initially started experimenting with 3D typography which was photographed on a hockey pitch. I decided however that the best way for me to recreate this injury would be to hand paint the injury onto a model. I used acrylic to paint the leg and stencilled the lettering on top to create an emotional response.


DATA VISUALISATION


DATA VISUALISATION

BRIEF

Collect a complex set of data and create a cohesive data visualisation. The presentation of this work could be a number of static images, design, animation, or an installation.

APPROACH

After collecting the data my Uncle had on my family tree, I aquired information on over 3000 members of my family. I decided that the best way of showing this data would be in the form of an app. Taking static data and creating live data.

METHOD

I decided I would design an app that would show the location of your family members at any given time, get travel data for your personal movements and keep an up to data address book for your family members.
