For my final major project on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design, I created a project which focused on ways of increasing food bank donations across the UK.
I felt particularly before Covid-19, that food banks were often overlooked especially as donation points were placed past the tills in shops. By the time the customer passed the donation point their shopping had been packed away or they had only purchased what they needed.
I noticed there was nothing throughout the shops to give customers a gentle reminder whilst they did their shopping. To address this I created a freestanding billboard with a food bank shopping list attached which could be torn or peeled away.
In addition I created hanging billboards and plaques to sit on the shelves to notify customers of food bank items and a 'thank you' billboard.

D&AD Brief - YULA Energy Drink
For this brief it was a joint project between myself and Meg Dennis (www.meganjdesign.com) We wanted to create something slightly different and to take something to the next step in poster design by making it animated and placing the animation behind the text that brings focus to the caption.
Whilst researching the Yula we noticed they did not have a Twitter page, for our final outcome we created the animated poster which included sound. We also designed a mock-up Twitter page which would assist the promotion of their business.
Penguin Book Cover
This is my entry for the Penguin Student Design Award 2020, I decided to make my book cover design for 'Goodnight Mister Tom' a little different and fun by creating the illustrations from Fimo clay.
The front cover features the main characters Mr Tom, William and also Sam the dog. On the front cover I added a tree which consisted of two different types of leaves from an oak and a beech tree. The leaves representing the two main characters Mr Tom Oakley and William Beech.
On the back cover behind the bar code is an air raid shelter which also features in the book.
Magazine for young people
For my second year final major project on my degree course I decided to create a prototype magazine aimed at 10-15 year olds, which gives help and advice on issues such as anxiety and bullying.
To create the cover illustrations I used an image which represented the title of the magazine - an umbrella.
The umbrella is a metaphor for the support offered by the magazine on various issues, with also creating four double page spreads to go along with some of the front covers based on those certain issues.
