Visual Inspiration 1. Contrast of online and offline. Computer design is topped with doodles, ink and thick, heavy black marks. This aesthetic allows the designer to add a personal, sometimes inimitable feel to the design. The combination of the two mediums will allow me to demonstrate my interest in both areas and demonstrate a versatile skills set.

Visual Inspiration 2. High tech applications such as surveillance systems and mapping influence print and typography. Enconded messages appear in the form of photocopied textures, linear structures and numerical codes. Chinese characters are, in some form, a visually intriguing way of following this trend, with an additional sleekness and minimalism which, alongside simple shapes and clean layouts, translate my taste and visual beliefs.

Visual Inspiration 3. Busy grids continue at the forefront of layout design. Negative space is key and off white backgrounds are increasingly seen. One-tone designs have also become commonplace. An elaborate grid and a restricted colour palette will allow me to showcase examples of my work within my self promotion without compromising sophistication.

Aesthetic Overview Taking into account both these trends and previous feedback, I have rebranded my self-promotion with a more mature and timeless aesthetic in mind.


This new design is highly versatile and easily adjustable to the development of my taste. The logo has remained the same.

Colour Scheme

Business Card

Implementation The business card design was the catalyst for everything else. The simple back contrasts with the busy front without losing its cohesion. The edges will be foiled in either pink or silver, in order to break black and white’s simplicity.
