My final major project I focus on ways of increasing donations to food banks. I felt that, particularly before Covid 19, the need to donate to food banks was often overlooked. This was worsened by the donation points being placed past the tills because 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 that there is nothing throughout the shop to give the customer a gentle reminder whilst they do their shopping. This was something I wanted to address.
To do this I created a freestanding billboard with food bank shopping list attached which can be torn or peeled away.
In additional, I created hanging billboards, plaques to sit on the shelves to notify customers of foodbank 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 take the next step in poster design by making it animated. Placing the animation behind the text 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 represented 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
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.
I also created four double page spreads to go along with some of the front covers, based on those certain issues.

Natural History Museum - Life Cycle
The brief was to create a hundred posters for the Natural History Museum, showing a Life Cycle of our choice. The posters I created were based on the four stages of the rain cycle.
There was only one restriction put in place by the client and that was we ere not able to use a computer to produce the posters. To get round this restriction I made myself a stencil to create a some of the poster designs, as well as the rain.
Medium used was acrylic paink, ink and of course the rain.
The four posters I produced represent four stages of the rains life cycle:- Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Collection.
For the design solution brief I decided to base my final outcome on 'Anti-littering' campaign.
I created a billboard poster and stickers which go onto bins. This campaign is aimed at the younger generation.
The stickers for the bins were designed in the shape of speech bubbles to give the impression the bin is talking to the general public. The speech bubbles contain some fun and cheeky innuendos captions.
Examples of the stickers I created.
I used green for the text in the billboard poster and the speech bubbles to represent the environment and being green.
