I currently split my time between London and New York, studying Typeface Design at Cooper Union.
- Certificate of Typographic Excellence — Type Directors Club
- BA (hons) Design & Art Direction — Manchester School of Art
A range of printed projects including book covers and hand-lettered typographic commissions.
Worked on mock designs for educational courses teaching English as a second language which included mechanicals and cover design.
I was also the lead cover designer and typesetter for adult international test papers created in partnership with Trinity College. With a small print-run of 4,000, it is primarily for the Italian speaking markets and the first joint venture of Trinity College and Macmillan Education. Cover designs confirmed within the first draft, allowing the project to get ahead of schedule.
The Ski Club of Great Britain
Re-design members' magazines; ski+board, and Elevation (including features, covers, adverts, advertorials, FOB, photography shoots, design templates). The new design was well received and in a survey of 200 randomly selected members, 90% stated that ski+board was a 'valuable part of their membership' at the end of the 2014/15 season. Prior to my working within the company, it was scheduled to be cancelled due to a lack of perceived interest from the members.
TriNorth Communications Ltd
Lead designer and occasional photographer for Netball, a quarterly magazine delivered to over 80,000 members – one of the biggest titles in its respective sporting field at the time. It contributed to the success of National Governing Body, England Netball winning the BT Sport Industry Awards 2014.
I also contributed to the design of a number of sports and lifestyle magazines, All Out Cricket, Hockey, Grid Iron (the only American football magazine in the UK) and Sportsister.
