RATIONALE My focus is on branding and identity with an investigation into print, packaging and promotion with the intention to develop my skills in type, layout and screen based design. To do this I will choose briefs that will translate onto both print and screen. With an emphasis on professional printing techniques and looking into how to integrate screen with printed material by researching into new technology’s. The subjects of design I would like to concentrate on, are events and exhibitions, technology, competitions and branding and identity for live clients.

“Do you Ever Finish Anything” It is a look into the most influential studios to my practice and then I look into a fast section on different print finishes. A personal look into what influences my practice. It has a focus on printed material and techniques looking at how print finishes can enhance design. There is also a section on stock and colour to show how colours have preconceptions and picking the right one is essential to design. I spent about week putting together the book. Book look at influences and studios throughout the term.

Leeds International Film Festival (LIFF) The Brief is to create the branding and event collateral for the 27th annual Leeds film festival.
