First person printing
Just 15 second mock up test of a way to record and show the process of letterpress in a first person view. An idea that ties in with my FMP at uni.
I will have to hire out a decent camera to get a professional look to the recording.
Adrianna Keczmerska Identity
Continuing from the logo I designed for Adrianna. The business cards produced for her have taken inspiration from Polaroids. This allows for various photographs of hers to be produced on the front and showcases her work immediately.
Additional work to follow.

Glug Event 20.02.14
On thursday I attended a graphic design event in London. The night had a few good talks about some design studios how they work and how they begun. Some gave talks on different ways design works with new materials and the use of them. They used the term ‘Not Networking’ an informal approach to networking. As the majority of people who attend came in groups it looked clear that many people just spent time with who they came with. I managed to meet a few new people from the friends I came with new others that was there.
The night overall good it could of done with some more talks and some other side events but I would like to attend a lot more of these.
Adrianna Keczmerska Photography logo
Asked by photographer Adrianna Keczmerska to design a logo for her. She wanted something simple and unique and not a cliché of a common photography symbol. I created something bold, classic but modern by taking her initials and merging the two to have this unique and identifiable logo.
AM Architectural Designs Logo
Asked to design a logo for a freelance architect. The logo focuses on bold shapes that form structure, in this case the initials AM. The logo is clever using small detail features but overall simple and memorable.
Myself and Greg Barrett was asked to create a lecture poster for BA Hons Fashion & Textiles 2nd and 3rd year students. The poster was for two speakers in the fashion industry. The poster had to communicate both of the speakers. Researching both the speakers we then came up with a minimalistic design that took aspects from both of them and what they about to do. Using pattern and the idea of the dots being the students and the other dots being the speakers. The day before getting the poster all cleared and off to print one speaker had to pull out, the change was only minor and was solved.
Photographing Posters 06.02.14
Thursday evening down in the photography studio setting up to photography posters I have worked on. They will be used on both my printed and web portfolio, taking photographs of them against the wall will help show how both text and image looks at an A1 on scale.
Exhibition at Tate, some of the photography in the room was really nice. I mainly liked how it was laid out, sectioned into themes, from nature, people, places etc.
Light exhibition at Tate Modern.

ISTD Brief Spread
A spread from my book for the ISTD Brief ‘Everything About One Thing’.
Semester one hand in
Mine and Greg Barrett’s work hung in the studio for hand in. I didn’t hang anything for the ISTD brief as I produced a mock up booklet for that, which was in with the sketchbook submission. The Alan Kitchen poster produced remained in its frame in the hallway, so didn’t require hanging in the space. I am pleased with the amount produced and the overall outcomes for them.
Continued work to the ISTD brief will be done for the actual submission for that, but now it’s onto the FMP.
As Suarez signed a new long-term contract for us today, I thought I would do a little drawing. #suarez #liverpool #drawing #illustration #football
Alan Kitching Talk
On Thursday 12th December we had the privilege to have Alan Kitching come down to The Minories to do a talk for us. The Talk was a great insight into his practise. The best part of the talk was being able to see pieces of his work that I had never seen before. It was also interesting to hear his though process behind many of the pieces such as the typographic maps of areas he had lived in and how he explained, just like the underground map the places are not geographically correct to the scale but the direction is correct and the same principles applied to his posters. The talk wasn’t about teaching us something new but more of his ways of thinking and the many things you could do with one medium.
Myself and a few others also had the privallage to go to the pub and have a few drinks with him and talk further more on his talk and other subjects.
