A commissioned piece for a Manchester based music band. A psychedelic themed poster featuring melting buildings during the late day. The logo fits the band name within the letter ‘S’. An interesting project that took 2 weeks from design to product.
For my first project at MMU we were tasked to create an alphabet set. The alphabet must be created from modular pieces. For my project I looked into the expression of swift calligraphy. The end product had to show our alphabet pieces on a poster.
A commission for Manchester based music events. This took some sketching but eventually I created a visual style of distorted oil effects that look amazing, an effect I am proud and pleased with. Along with the visual style I created a logo and posters/flyers. This is what I created. To find out more about Midnight Oil’s events click here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1515140565467152/
The product was a visual style book, explaining the style and colour scheme as-well as instructions how to the use the logo. The generated oil patters can be used by the client however they please.

College project to create a poster promoting the Manchester Science festival. As groups we visited MOSI, Manchester’s museum of science and industry. I did sketches and took many photo’s that could become useful as research. However most of the museum was about locomotion and air travel, I wanted to move away from this and started looking into the small world of Biology.
Scanning electron microscopes took my attention because of the extraordinary level of detail they could produce.
I thought the bright neon colours would stand out on the poster. Using my technical knowledge I was able to recreate the electron microscope effect in a virtual 3D environment I could manipulate. Blood cells are probably the most known or at least easiest cell to recognize. I chose a simple ‘into the distant’ composition.
I’m pleased with the result, my tutor during a group critique session mentioned that would of made a powerful drug awareness poster. I agree with my tutor and I also think there could be many other applicants for the graphic.
A Commission found by my Partner, for her old pub job. Feedback was very positive and was great seeing my work printed out and placed around the venue. I went for a slightly grungy vintage theme and made sure the text popped with bright colours.
