This portfolio was a collaboration of all of the semesters work and applying each weekly assessment task. The weekly tasks explored; basic camera controls (depth of field and movement and setting the right exposure),resolution, white balance, lighting, colour and contrast, scale and cropping, compositional exploration – varying viewpoint, angle, perspective. Whilst applying our research from a variety of photographic genres, iconic images and specific photographers.

This was a storybook portfolio for form and structure. We were asked to create a storybook for adults or redesign an exsisting storybook and adapt it to an adult audience. I chose to create my own storyline with the underlying theme of negative self image. We were asked to create some interactive elements into the book, I chose a foldout and see through page as well as the colour theme throughout. As this book was about negative self image the colour scheme started very dull and as the story progresses the contrast increases along with the storyline.




The aim of this packaging project was to produce arthritis friendly packaging that is accessible, hazard free, reusable, convenient and minimal. The most well known form of USB packaging is the plastic clam shell type. Obviously this has many issues; from a c c e s s i b i l i t y t o s a f e t y m a t t e r s .
