BYOP is a poetry evening. It comprises of writers and non-writers reading out poems in any format in an informal setting. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the french 'salon' or New York Open Mic. The client asked me to take the zine-like aesthetic of past posters and make them eye catching and professional. To do this, I considered the space the poster would be shown- bars and cafe settings. The spaces were filled with high contrast black and white photo copies, and high saturation photo-posters. To create something noticeable but that still maintained the client's desire for a zine like feel I decided to use soft pastel colours inspired by Risograph prints. The illustrations and lettering are all hand rendered, giving the poster the requested zine-like style. As the client is passionate about the spoken word, I intended the phonic illustrations to mimic the verbal nature of the evening. The lips are forming the sounds of BYOP in order to convey a visual manifestation of the process behind spoken word poetry, simuyltaniously forming a contiuous single mouth motion and that of a croud of mouths speaking.

Henry Jones Tree Surgery
My Brother Henry is a tree surgeon. I loved working with him on the branding for his tree surgery company. Henry is a very traditional tree surgeon, making use of both modern mechanised tools (chainsaws) and more traditional tools (Axes/Billhooks). The logo is based on several 1800's circle emblems, and included a traditional cleaning hatchet.

BCN Wildlife Trust
I volunteered on several design projects for BCN Wildlife Trust. Wildlife conservation is a cause I care a lot about, and I was really grateful for the opportunity to contribute.

'GHOTI Tough Women Nation' (pronounced Fish) is a zine containing short stories, illustration, photography, reviews, comics and more.
The project is a series of indie-press feminist zines. Each issue was submission based creative work, centred around a theme. The editor, who was working at a publishing house, approached me to be a contributing designer to their own project. I did several pieces over the issues in varying styles. The concept was to expose artists and writers among peers, to create a work exchanging culture.
Issue 2 Cover illustration
The theme of the issue was 'aliens'. I wanted to pair the sub culture aesthetic of 70s/80s zine art with the theme, so I took cult classic Sully from the X-Files and incorporated her into an underground tattoo parlour illustration.
I used photographs from tattoo magazines as an inspiration for the composition. Beginning with pencil sketches from reference images, the design was then scanned and digitally inked before sending to the editor.
