A dossier detailing my final year at Bath Spa University, studying Graphic Communication.
The dossier looks to my future and professional life, the role of a mentor, details of lectures, self promotion, exhibiting, and commissions.
Sing London deliver high profile, participatory events that connect people in urban environments. They requested an exhibit, that portrays the impact that the Bessemer (steel production) process had on the London skyline. The piece is now part of a collection touring the UK as part of the Travelling Museum of British Invention.
The Directory, a book containing twenty-six posters of single letters from A to Z. The brief: to use only black and white. The posters were then auctioned off, to fund the Bath Spa Graphic Communication degree show.
A piece to illustrate a story found in New Scientist magazine; the story investigated whether the basic tenets of algebra have been found to be unsound. When viewed directly from above, the clear acrylic assembly reveals an algebraic equation, and when viewed from the side; a city skyline.
This project was based around the word hidden.
This piece was the culmination of a design and research project, centred around cold war espionage equipment, that were integrated into everyday objects, from watches to attaché cases. Concealed out in the open, these cameras were made out of re-purposed materials, so they could be hidden in plain sight. Whilst being aesthetically pleasing, the object is also a fully functioning pinhole camera, capable of producing images itself.
THE PLIMSOLL LINE
After completing several successful exhibits for Sing London's Travelling Museum of British Invention, further work was commissioned, in the form of a piece that looked at the number of sailors who were saved by the regulation of the quantity of freight carried aboard commercial vessels.
An established hairdresser, based in Bath, Mr Shellard Young commissioned a business card to attract a wider client base. Working closely with the client on the design, from conception to completion allowed the design to take a course which resulted in a minimal aspect; which suited the client's specific needs, and potential audience.
A further commission from Sing London; a period-true clothes label for a Macintosh oilskin jacket. The design adheres to era specific styling, with particular attention paid to typography, colour use, and paper choice; the original spelling of Macintosh was used, in the place of the adulteration in use by the brand today.
Utilising typography to convey the feeling of being underwater.
The image was captured on location, in Victoria Park, Bath, flowing water from a small waterfall was used to naturally distort the hand lettered type. The final image was then refined in Photoshop.
