DRAGONS DEN THE MEAT WORKS For our group project, we created ‘The Meat Works’ a worldwide donation program, tasked to bring a new view on food. To do this, we brought a high end company to life.

The success of this project was in the group, we worked very well together, each able to take constructive critisism and give advise knowing that it would be well recieved. This ability to bounce ideas off eachother without fear of reprobation.

I enjoyed the freedom of creativity in the group too. Each coming from very different design backgrounds and interests, from computer graphics, to art direction. This mix of skills and abilities was crucial in the ideas stage of the production. Creating a vision of not one memeber, but five, cohesively.

There were a few slip ups, one occured near the start of the project, one member, failed to pull their weight, so we were forced to fire them. Another problem was that we started production quite late, putting pressure on finalising and planning for the presentation.

I thought my own personal imput was good, usually I struggle to find a balance in group projects between being outspoken and not speaking at all.


One of my favorite pieces of work so far is this set of screen printed metallic posters. The idea is that the image is you, you’re the donation.


I thought that the pieces we produced flowed neatly and looked professional, none would look out of place at a high end butchers.


I was introduced to new techniques that I’ve previously been hesitant to put into my work. Such as foil blocking and screen print. I think having support from group members was crucial to this step outside of my comfort zone.

PACKAGING...


JDO RAW BASEMENT JAXX I was initially hesistant about choosing this particular brief. All year I’d been waiting for the TOPMAN brief to come around and try my hand at winning some work experience. However, when handed the brief I found the particular subject didn’t light me on fire. This caused me to look at other avenues of possible adventure.

I really enjoyed the Basement Jaxx brief, I think it allowed me more creative freedom than the other two on offer, which as an end of year project, was quite a relief. I used photography and for the first time, expereimented and learned much on Adobe

Photoshop, a program that has previously left me in fear. My overall work ethic was good too, I worked on this every day.

Another part of this project I enjoyed was the early conceptual stage. I was able to visually explore an idea I’ve had for a long time.

I’ve been heavily influenced by tribal cultures in my work, an everyday interest for me, so it was quite exciting to create a typeface and art direct a ‘Neotribal’ Photoshoot.

Overall I’m pleased with the outcome of the project, I’m going to work on my ideas further before sending to JDO. Particularly going

to concentrate on the packaging


This is my Concept booklet, which holds the essence of my idea. While fully displaying the artworks, typefaces and imagery.

In the end, after three photo shoots I was happy with the images I produced, they are expressive and emotive, which is what I was aiming for. Hopefully this should make them eye catching. Integral to an album cover.

OTHER STUFF THAT I’VE WORKED ON...

OTHER STUFF THAT I’VE WORKED ON... I was approached to work on a degree show catalogue for the third and final year of the school of art film makin course, Contemporary film & Video. I think this has provided me with quite valuble experience in working with clients. The work isn’t my most daring design work, however I think it works

to show off the works held within. This experience has definately taught me a lot about client based work. I’m hoping it will also give me experience working with professional printers too as the booklet is about to go into production.
