Custom Typeface

Ugly In Pink Typography / Design / 3D In this project I challenged myself to create an original typeface with newly acquired 3D software, Cinema 4D. This typeface is based off the ‘Mistral’ font. In this exercise I learnt how the shape and form of a typeface can influence the way an intended message is communicated. A short motion sequence was included in this piece.

Synaesthesia Perfume Product Photography / Advertisement / Print Design ‘Synaesthesia’ is a conceptual advert parodying Pantone’s colour-matching system with a scent-matching system. The ‘make-believe’ R&D department of Pantone have made a breakthrough in converting colour into scents/ fragrances. They are currently promoting their new sample packs to perfume connoisseurs.

Don’t Go Raw Product Photography / Advertisement / Print Design This concept was inspired by the infamous ‘Durex’ ads and off the shelf cooking magazines. The representation of the male biology as a meat product is meant to be cheeky and when paired with the tagline ‘Don’t Go Raw’ has a humorous undertone to the whole visual narrative. Additionally, the ‘O’ in the tagline is substituted with a condom to reference the act of ‘Safe Sex’.

Anti-Smoking Series Product Photography / Advertisement / Print Design This series of images were taken as part of a personal anti-smoking advertisement campaign. The juxtoposition of everyday objects with cigarette butts is to shock and deter away from the habit of smoking. The unique taglines associated with each visual is to exemplify how ‘smoking’ is so engrained into a user’s behaviour and lifestyle.

Branding

CBR Innovation Network Branding / Design The CBR Innovation Network is a fledgling entrepreneurial and networking hub. In this eight week project I worked closely with the Marketing Director developing a suite of digital branding assets for the organisation. Although a styleguide is in place the hub had yet to formalise a method of presenting their brand identity as a whole. I designed a system of layouts and templates that housed the CBR Innovation Network’s essential branding elements in a compositionally sound way. Client website:

Branding

Contemporary Parenting Expo 2016 Branding / Print Design This conceptual branding project was for the ‘Contemporary Parenting Expo’ an annual event hosted across one weekend. In 2016 the expo’s headlining discussion was ‘Raising the Middle Child’. Keywards for the event branding were: warm, inviting, family friendly and ‘networking without being corporate’. Branding collaterals included event logo, branding visuals, programme booklet and a promotional event item.

Commission Work

Song Artwork Commission Art / Design / 3D A San Francisco-based creative, ‘daehan’, commissioned me to design an artwork for his yet to be released digital music single about ‘San Francisco’ (titled TBC). My client wanted the ‘Golden Gate Bridge’ to feature in this piece and most of the other visual components may be determined by myself. In this final design the artwork features the iconic bridge inside a floating snowglobe, a hommage to souvenir gifts. Client website:
