A5 4pp leaflet for South Oxford District Council, designed as part of my work at One.
The brief was short and sweet: to create a design that was 'bright and cheerful' to encourage residents of Beringfield to engage with it, rather than let it sit on the doormat for weeks and/or throw it straight into the bin.
I drew out the central map by hand, adding textures with photos and layer effects, and added in some flat illustrations to give it a bit of life. I mixed up three fonts, a handwritten one for the map detail, a friendly but clear sans serif sheared for titles, and the standard serif font used by the Council for body text.
Research For RE: Marketing Page
Website design for Culham St Gabriel's new Research For RE platform, designed as part of my work at One. The site is built to enable communication between academics publishing research on teaching in schools, and the teachers who follow through these new methods in the classroom.
The brief was to create the initial marketing page that users would reach when first getting to the site, and the designs shown to the left are the early stages of this. For these, I carried the colour palette from the logo through to colour blocks, strips, simple illustrations with quotations about learning and collaboration, and varying text styles to ensure the user is not immediately hit with a wall-of-text.
OUP ELT Handbook
Handbook design for Oxford University Press, done as part of my work at One.
The handbook was used internally to publicise and explain the ELT Innovation Scheme, a competition for employees on the them of Data, and how this can be used to improve services across the company.
Keble College Ball 2016
Summer in Oxford marks the start of the Ball season, and Keble is host to the largest of them all. With 1600 guests to wine, dine, and entertain, the amount of work that goes into such an event is immense. In 2016, the theme was decided to be Panopticon, a dystopian-surveillance-style evening, signalling a far cry from classic themes of romance and fairytale.
For this event I created a main poster, a newspaper-style programme, several large-print banners, adverts, and signs for the night, all of which conveyed the central idea of an all-powerful dystopian government.
Situated on the main quad throughout the ball were five large scaffolding towers, each with a large PVC banner wrapped around them. The aim of these was to create a feeling of a large, omnipresent state, echoing themes of surveillance present throughout the event. To create these I used a mixture of old photos found in books and scanned in as well as images of space to keep the old/new clash apparent, and maintaining an odd dystopian-future type feel for the key focus of the event.
The programme for the evening was also laid in a similarly unique way. It was printed as a newspaper, as I wanted it to feel quite old fashioned but also slightly futuristic. I used a wide range of fonts and twisted the directions of text throughout in order to achieve this.
I also created a series of small 'Public Health Announcements', which were placed in the newspaper, on posters, and printed as a newspaper and plastered throughout various rooms on the night. These were really fun to create, using old illustrations and making up bizarre rules which may be enforced by this fictional state.
As a committee we also built three lightboxes, which served as directional signs on the evening. These were initially white, but as the evening progressed they changed colour regularly. I created the map to fill these, which was printed on lightbox paper and installed prior to the event.
In November 2015 I joined the One team in Summertown, Oxford, and was promptly shipped off to an in-house role at CRM Students, one of the UK's largest student housing providers.
This particular client required a wide variety of print collateral and digital materials, often with very short deadlines and a high weekly turnover, ensuring a pretty hectic working week. In my time there I produced leaflets, pull-up banners, promotional items, large-scale hoardings for new sites, adverts for press, promotional items such as coffee cups and portable chargers, corporate documents and layouts, posters for events, social media graphic content, floor plans, and web design and imagery. As well as this, over time I also became more involved with copywriting for the CRM blog and some social media components.
Displayed on this page are examples of the less corporate and more creative briefs I worked on during my time there.
Logo design and branding work for Triteq undertaken as part of my work at One.
Triteq are a product design consultancy specialising in medical product design. They came to One to refresh their branding and roll this out in as many unusual ways as we could dream up. So far this has included new graphics for their office, but we've seen pitches for a Triteq USB charger, clocks, and my personal favourite: Triteq socks.
The Kotch Club
The Kotch Club is a club night celebrating Caribbean music and dance culture, including Dancehall, Soca, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Afrobeat music. The night started in Bristol in 2013, and in 2016 moved to London: the organisers wanted to refresh their existing logo and give the night a 'touch up'.
Together we worked on a logo that would hark back to the roots of the music in Jamaica in the 70s, hence the colour palette and vintage feel, but that could also be seen as modern and easily used as photo overlays and for social media posts.
Wolfson Architecture Series
The first in a series of posters for a lecture series at Wolfson College, Oxford, by architect Alan Berman.
The talks focussed on the history of architecture, the changing styles and emerging themes, and often referenced buildings local to Oxford.
Keble College Yearbook 2015
The past few yearbooks created by students had been very modern and colourful, half filled-in and full of poor quality images. For my graduation year I took over the organisation of this publication, and threw the whole project back to yearbooks produced by the college in the early 1900s.
Along with Oliver Robinson, a student photographer, we arranged for professional photos to be taken of each student (which was very much like herding cats), and I laid out all 120 black and white photos in a small A5 hardbound book. Each person was given a 'tweet-sized' space to write whatever they fancied, and I included photos of sports teams and social events in the back.
The logo on the front I also created for the college, and it was used throughout my time at University for various items such as jumpers and discount cards. Keble is most famous for its design by the architect Butterfield, who created it out of brick for students who couldn't traditionally have afforded to go to Oxford. The bricks are therefore central to this design, representing much of what Keble is about.
