Design & Illustration

Selected projects include invite and poster design, logo and packaging concepts.

Invitation Design

A simple and elegant design referencing the wild coastal location of this wedding on a remote island in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland, with all event supplies sustainably sourced from surrounding islands.

The brief included invitation, order of service, menus, table names and a table plan. I created a hand drawn illustrated map and ink wash pattern, and envelopes were lined with historic local map wrapping paper.

Logo concept

Estates Gazette magazine asked me to spend one day developing a bold, contemporary logo concept for new digital platform that combines real estate and technology. The logo needed to work standalone as well as alongside the existing tag line.

This project was initial concept only as the final art-working was completed in-house by the magazine.

Other design options and colour palette:

Packaging Concept

Self-initiated packaging design concept for luxury candle brand using original patterns taken from unique photogram prints that I create in a photographic dark room. The prints are created using multiple exposures of shadows, light and paint, to generate intriguing sensuous textures.

Invitation Design

  

Invitation design to the launch of a newly completed 7 floor workspace design in Mayfair. The pattern references the molecular structure of oil and gas, the client’s industry, and is further echoed in the curved shape which resembles the form of an oil drill and the helical staircase built between the client floors.

Beat The Rush used a clock graphic and hand rendered type to illustrate it as the speediest option and was featured in The Best of British Illustration Awards 2011 publication and national touring exhibition.

Poster design concept

Re-imagining the exhibition poster for ‘Eco-visionaries’ at The Royal Academy featuring seascape imagery by Wolfgang Tillmans.

 

‘World turned upside down’ uses imagery printed and torn up to offer an analogue visual of change, shift and impact on natural systems.
