STUDENT PORTFOLIO OF WORK
Selection of projects from my final year at Norwich University College of the Arts, studying Design for Publishing.
Editorial Design: ‘The Paper 2012’
Designed to build hype for the London 2012 Olympics, the series would focus on the olympians and performances to look forward to. Typography influenced by the nature of the sport or event itself.

editorials are my own)
Small selection of spreads shown from the A3-sized paper:
Womens Volleyball, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh (USA)
Mens Swimming, Michael Phelps (USA)
Mens Running, Usain Bolt (Jamaica)
Event Publicity: ‘Ginger Jamboree’
The Ginger Jamboree is a free one-day event that would be held in Hyde Park London, to celebrate red hair. I produced a four page paper-guide, headwear and advertisements.

The Original 10:
Celebrating 75 years of Penguin books
Book cover design and prelims
To celebrate 75 years since the first ten Penguin
paperback books were released, I have designed
a special edition set of books. It was important
to retain the iconic original designs as much as possible,
while still modernising them. The penguin
itself is the only thing which differs from the original
front cover design; I use a jumping penguin to fit
with the theme of ‘celebration’, which is further applied
through the prelims and in-store promotion.

The Lion and the Unicorn:
Symbolic Architecture for the
Festival of Britain 1951
Lion and Unicorn Press live brief
Book cover design, prelims and typesetting
Working to quite a strict live client brief, I pushed my idea towards a strong fifties colour palette and typefaces that
were used at the festival. This came to life through
the chapter pages shown, and the cover.

Chapter opening pages
Puffin Children’s Prize design entry:
James and the Giant Peach
Typographic approach to the cover of this classic Roald Dahl
childrens’ book. My idea moves away from the traditional Blake illustrations, while still hinting towards a peach through use of colour and positioning of type.
