Portfolio/ C.V.

I have decided to not include an address in my C.V. at this present moment in time because as soon as i have finished Visual Communication i will be between addresses and between countries so i feel that my phone will be the most reliable form of communication in conjunction with email.

These are the finished greeting cards that i designed for Guys 18-35 as small gifts for there friends in the pub. After conducting some questionnaires i came to a rather overwhelming conclusion that men 18-35 did not tend to purchase a birthday card for there "mates down the pub" instead they where far more likely to simply buy them a drink. This is the culmination of the two concepts. The buyer will select a beer or cider that there friend drinks and purchase a voucher from (in this case) Weatherspoons, with a birthday message attached and room to write to........ and from.......... the voucher then tares off and allows the receiver to buy there drink and keep the birthday message in there wallet.

My anti Gambling poster. I wanted to convey in a simple way just how damaging gambling debt can be! The photography shows clearly a man down on his luck and the copy tells the viewer how this happened.

The animal watch packaging design drawings. The wave shaped constructed plywood says surf, and the plywood says skate. The cavity inside where the watch is housed also contains the watch after purchase so that the user can use it as a bedside clock as well.

bus ad shell poster design for the Royal British Legion. Because this is supposed to be placed at a bus stop i decided to put it in context and use the visuals of the bus route map to create bullet points that convey facts about where the money from donations really goes. I feel the information contained could easily be taken in by the viewer because a person waiting at a bus stop does have the time to stop and read.

My type radio double page spread magazine layout, the text was taken from a radio interview with Ellen Lupton then i transcribed it and created this layout. I chose the title "Design is a Religion" because this felt to be one of the more interesting and frankly crazy quotes from this particular interview. The text is laid out to represent a cross which is one of the more prominent religious icons.

This was created during a "drift" around Bournemouth. A "drift" is where you simply walk around a new place, on this occasion Bournemouth was a new town to me so i decided to look up at some of the more interesting architectural features in Bournemouth town center. I was looking from a different view then normal because i was looking from directly bellow each structure. I feel that this has a rather Russian constructivist feel because i have used collage to piece all of the elements together with sky.
