MA work

My work sits within the broad category of ‘Graphic Design’ but touches on an array of different media and context, both in traditional and digital spaces.

Over the last two years I have increasingly explored how our communication is changing across new and developing platforms, its relationship with traditional practice and how that is affecting design in a wider sense. This motivation manifested in the creation of the Eady Forum, with Adrian Shaughnessy, Joe Pielichaty & Jess Morgan, a discussion group exploring the current context of graphic design. The Forum has held events and workshops with high profile speakers from around the industry, curated exhibitions as well as producing a publication that will be launched at this year’s show. The challenge extended beyond just organising and curating these events, we developed a progressive re-imagining of ‘branding’ to create the visual identity and manifesto for the group, as well as an online publishing platform and a constant turnover of promotional material.

Within my personal work I have explored a number of smaller conceptual projects, but a constant theme has been how traditional design thinking translates into digital media. Starting with my dissertation on the link between modernist design practice and digital interactive design, I have explored how our tools for communication are changing, culminating with my project ‘Harmonised Form Tool’, which proposes a new language system, using technology to provide an intuitive form of communication.
