MA work

As a graphic designer, I am fascinated by the process and ideas behind design, particularly 'design thinking' as a creative methodology that can be applied to everyday life. This interest has led to a number of exciting, multi-layered collaborations, for example: a spatial typography project in Arnold Circus, London E2; and curated conversations for the Stock: Women in Design project. My work focuses on the details of design and putting a message in context, particularly in book design and taking typography into 3D. I am interested in what it means to be a graphic designer in the twenty-first century, where the boundaries of the discipline lie and how to cross them.
