I made my triumphant return to publication layout and design this week with the launch of the Social and Political Review in Trinity College. The editor, Alex Trant is a good friend of mine and when she was looking for a layout and design editor, I volunteered happily. Below are a few of the initial … Continue reading The Social and Political Review
Yesterday I was asked to create a poster to be on display for an alumni and potential student event. It had to feature at least nine of the previous Trinity alumni, with a good mix of old and new. Simple, classical and with the incorporation of the three Trinity College colours (Blue, Gold & Grey) … Continue reading Alumni Circle & Squares
I hate the musical Grease, so wasn't exactly thrilled to be asked to make a poster for it but a long weekend of college readings and emailing replying made me desperate to do something creative. I considered a few ideas on paper (I always sketch my ideas out to some extent, even if it's just … Continue reading Greasin’ the Wheels
About a week ago I was asked to create a poster for a mock-Student Union University event that was happening. I took some of the candidates and created caricatures of each of them from pictures I had on on Facebook .

I've summarised my usual breakdown when I realise I've hit the word count on my last Reading Week essay … Continue reading Reading Week – The saga
Unfortunately my actual portfolio imagery was destroyed when my laptop when ka-plunk about a year ago. The following are the only two that could be salvaged. I use ink and pastels, I decided to do my self-portrait in lino, as I couldn't focus on accurately creating my face so stripped it down to the minimum.
I created two posters for the Visual Arts Society's end of year exhibition. We wanted two designs so as to attract more attention. When you're competing against 150+ society events, you want to ensure yours stands out. I worked on opposite colour palettes and tried to keep one to my classic minimalist calling-card, and leave … Continue reading A Tale of Two VisArts
