Mobile app concept for park hyatt milan

Overview: Secret Societies: For centuries a selected few have formed and joined secret societies around the world. They reap the benefits of the group and have symbolic and recognisable logos. Hyatti is a mobile phone application that uses an ambiguous code that is designed to look like ar t inspired by the marble Ed Tuttle, the architect has used around the hotel. Hyatti means life in Arabic and Turkish, and this application will be just that to the guests as they are able to control everything with the scan of a code and the tap of a finger. This application thus binds all the Park Hyatt guests together as they are the only ones who know about the unique functions of this secret code. Outcome: Mobile Application concept using a unique AR inspired code. skills: App Design, Branding, Graphic Design, Layout, Wireframing.

Freelance project, dubai shopping festival

Overview: When companies advertise that they are on sale the most popular colours they use are red and yellow to attract the attention of the passer bys. This is an antisale concept advertising the sale in a different way. I took inspiration from modern day popular culture as I was fascinated by the mirroring and colour effects in Jay-Z and Kanye West’s watch the throne music video. This brought a fresh and funky feel and was customizable enough for the client to add special promotional details. This design was selected by the client and used during the Dubai Shopping Festival 2013. Outcome: Shop window, sales banner, point of sale, news paper adver tisement. skills: Advertising Design, Branding, Graphic Design, Layout.

self initiated brief for final year project

Overview: ‘There are places on Earth, in every country, where, for various reasons, good schools cannot be built and good teachers cannot or do not want to go.’ Creating an innovating and engaging campaign to help Mr. Sugata Mitra’s (a scientist) plight in ensuring that good teachers go where they are needed. The idea is based around SOLEs (Self Organized Learning Environments) placed in large cities. Basically a large transparent box where teachers can spend one hour of their time per week teaching children across the world via Skype. Transparent in nature, this ambient adver tising will generate a buzz amongst the crowds. Outcome: Logo, Posters, Video explaining the project and several designs of the concept of the campaign. video link: http://vimeo.com/41611869 skills: Advertising Design, Branding, Graphic Design, Video.

internship work, on air since September 2011

Overview: An explosion of chaos, colour, creativity and music that were inspired by a rubik’s cube finds it’s way into the formation of the VH1 logo. My brief was to create an interesting 30 second formation of the VH1 logo. As the target age group for VH1 India is mainly teenagers and young adults, I used a dubstep version of the infamous ‘Tetris’ introduction as it would be relatable and it fit within my chosen theme of the rubik’s cube. Outcome: Logo formation graphics and motion graphics of the Logo formation using After Effects. video link: http://vimeo.com/40489923 skills: Advertising Design, Branding, Graphic Design, Video.

Undergraduate degree work

Overview: How are sausages really made? This is a creative concept of how I envision sausages to be made, by boxing them out of course! My brief was to create a campaign to raise awareness about Broad Oak Farm’s high quality sausages in order to help boost sales. The target group were18-30 year old proffessionals. The campaign surrounds a viral video which will aid people to come up with their own creative ideas about the naivity of how sausages are made and compete in an online competition.

A for purpose, for profit company based in New York that creates crafting kits for children paired with charities around the US. As this brand features crafting kits for kids I decided to base the logo around the typography (where the letter ‘i’ features a thumb print - representing their slogan: MAKE YOUR MARK) - The paint texture in the background is flexible and every changing with each crafting kit. These ar t mediums can be linked to the featured activity and will give the children a little hint as to what they can expect inside the kit.

Shop re-design for Unieuro, milan

Overview: Unieuro’s main focus is still about selling products, but with a new shopping model I plan on encouraging customers to engage in activities by trying the products out for themselves. In essence, Unieuro Grande begins to shift focus to ‘trysumerism’. This added value should encourage buyers to spend more time in the store and keep coming back. Grande is split into 6 main sections: Caffé (DIY, trysumerism based), Cinema (Grande scheme under Euro 1500), Casa (home setting to help customers visualize their kitchen and living room), Informatica (computer classes and helpdesk), Cucina (classes integrated within the Caffé setting, taking trysumerism a step fur ther by offering an informative and educational service) and Studio (rented office space). Outcome: Exhibition design and branding skills: Advertising, Branding, Graphic Design, Layout. Spacial and Exhibition Design.

self initiated brief for final year project

Overview: Education should be free for all, and in India it is with the added incentive of free lunch being provided to all government run schools. However, parents from lower income families would rather have their children beg and try and earn some money than send them to school. 08:30 - 15:45 is a coffee table book to showcase my photography and research that I did in India. The book addresses the issue of the Right to Education Act in India and how there are still over eight million children on the streets between 08:30 – 15:45 (when they should be in school) being denied their right to education. Outcome: Printed coffee table book Online link: http://issuu.com/jenai/docs/book_ design2 skills: Graphic Design, Layout, Photography.

Undergraduate degree work

Overview: Uchi is the Japanese word for home. The theme of my exhibition concept for Uchi was to create the illusion of a Japanese home within the gallery space, split into 4 main sections: the Zen garden, the porch, the living space and ‘enlightenment zone’. The main idea for the viewers to experience life in a Japanese home from the ‘inside’ of the Design Museum, but the lighting will increase as viewers move towards the end of the exhibition where there will be a light installation in the ‘enlightenment zone’ - a place where viewers can meditate and reflect. The logo is a series of circular repetition patterns which represents the pattern made using a Zen rake in sand. The four circles interlink to outline the shape of a flower that symbolizes nature, tranquillity, symmetry and peace. The beige colour on the bottom circle spells the Japanese word Uchi. Outcome: Exhibition design and branding skills: Advertising, Branding, Graphic Design, Layout. Spacial and Exhibition Design.

These photographs are just an example of the type of photographer I am.

self initiated projects

Overview: Sir Henry Moore once said that to be an artist is to believe in life. I never fully understood this statement before but now it speaks to me in so many ways. Art isn’t just about painting, sketching and drawing. It is also about communication, emotions and a point of view. During my GCSE’s I scored 100% in my ar t and design courses and due to my passion, I decided pursue ar t for my A Levels too where I scored a near perfect score. But to me it was so much more than the score that I got. I have always used ar t as a tool of letting go and expressing myself. Mawaheb is an ar t studio for adults with special needs in the Bastakiya district of Dubai, UAE. It truly is the most wonderful atmosphere to work in which is why I volunteer there whenever I am in town. This is a wonderful oppor tunity for me to paint as I do not paint as often as I used to anymore. skills: Mixed media, crayons, pencil, inks, acrylic, stucco, clay, plaster.
