Final year project

Finding orbit: Learning how to speak
This is the front cover of my poetry book, Finding Orbit: Learning How to speak. It was designed to capture the feelings of strangeness, trauma and joy that people go through but is very rarely touched upon in the mainstream media due to them relating to mental health. This aesthetic was created and designed in mind of the strange and positive aesthetic I wanted to capture.
The multi-species thinking project: Symbiosis
This piece is meant to evoke the feelings of our relationship with nature, specifically our symbiotic bond with nature and how it is just as much a part of us as we are of it. Each piece in this project evokes an idea of our connection with nature.
Together we thrive
this project is a branding redesign for HSBC for their D&AD competition. This is an illustrative redesign of the HSBC using shapes fund with the HSBC hexagon. I wanted to focus on the unique triangular shapes individually that make it up to highlight the 5 values HSBC represents and to show that only together is the full value of our society met showcasing the idea the "together we thrive".
Finding orbit poetry: No lack of taste
One of the pages within the book, this one about the way one rambles and loses track of the point of a conversation.
Multi-species thinking project: Harmony
Another piece in the Multi-species thinking project, showcasing a consistent aesthetic with the first illustration.
Together we thrive: Commerce
This is one of the 5 pillars of the HSBC brand and one of the 5 pieces of the illustration spread. This one represents trade and commerce, but the other 4 are:
- Diversity and Inclusivity
As you can see on the first spread, each part represents this idea and the ideas of people who exemplify this.
I am an Illustrator, designer and visual communicator, focusing on branding.
I have worked on three projects I'm wanting to show off on this website. I worked on an HSBC branding project called "together we thrive" for the D&AD competition. I wanted to showcase my unique creative vision which can enhance and build on the strength of a brand and show my understanding of brand identity. I worked on a project called "the multispecies thinking project" commissioned from a university in Japan. I did this to showcase my understanding of illustration and my strength of drawing and illustration, creating highly detailed and interesting renders of professional quality. I also worked on a poetry book project, which is much more personal a project, which I wanted to use to showcase my understanding of writing, narrative and the unique way in which we can tell stories or capture feelings to create a better world to live in. Each project I did was chosen to showcase my current strongest characteristics as a designer, though I am well versed in many facets of design, UI/UX being incredibly interesting to me.
These projects also show where my main interests lay. I love character design and narrative, hoping one day to make my own graphic novels and stories, as well as to work on the graphics and designs for games. I would love to be involved in the art direction and creative side of game design and creation at all levels, eventually leading an art team or being a creative director would be my dream.
