Our concept was to experience the region (South Bank, Brisbane) through a carefull considered pairing of sounds and smells.
By channeling our inner sommelier, we composed a curated guide that invites the user to experience the region through an auditory and olfactory manner. By encouraging users to write their thoughts and fuse their experience with ours, a collabarated memoir is produced.
The user is to explore the region through the experience of their sounds and smells. By mapping these different spaces & creating a curated list of smells and sounds, we are providing the user with the knowledge of the public sphere, albeit in an almost poetic way.
We are encouraging an imaginery future where guidance works with the user to explore and experience the region. We are raising awareness of the natural and cultural environment through the emotional result of a curated sensory experience.
In order to aid in the exploration, a companion app has been produced. The app uses GPS tracking to locate where the users are and play a carefully curated piece of music dependant on the time of day and location.
The app features minimal graphics as the auditory role is the primary function.
This was a group project: my fellow members were Jenna Lee, Olivia Croxson and George Cassavetis
I had the chance to create a typeface for a project I was working on. I was inspired by the 1920's and show's like Boardwalk Empire.
The font was created in Illustrator with a double stroke brush.
We had to create a brand for a company that would occupy space in a current market. The brand had to be unique in some way in order to stand apart from similar competitors.
I decided to tackle the banking marketplace. I came upon the concept of creating a bank that specialises in dealing with one of the most valuable item we can have; our memories.
To create an elitist luxury bank that specialises in dealing with memory storage rather than a traditional commodity.
Personal brand image and stationery to aid in self promotion.
A personal favourite author of mine is Bill Bryson. I had the opportunity to redesign some of his travel books into hardback format.
The hardback books feature entirely hand-drawn sleeve designs. The books chosen were African Diary, Down Under, Travels Around Europe and Notes From A Big Country.
The brief was to create a poster highlighting the upcoming Brisbane & Philadelphian contemporary film showcase.
There are two posters in the series, one with the sponsors logos and a plainer, yet more colourful version.
This was a magazine created for an arts magazine. The brief was to create an interactive magazine for people interested in a niche market.
All images are fully interactive, some being 3D and some filmed.
Children today are surrounded by more and more sugary and fatty foods than ever before.
In Australia, 20-25% or 1.5 million children under 18 are considered obese or overweight. If weight gain continues the path it is following, by the year 2020, 80% of all Australian adults and a third of all children will be overweight or obese.
There are a variety of risks from being obese from cardiovascular issues to osteoarthritis. This rise in obesity is caused by an increased intake of high sugar, high calorie foods with insufficient exercise.
My goal is to create a method to try and reduce obesity in children and promote healthy eating in schools.
For children that wanted to eat healther, especially in schools, there is very rarely a healthy option available. My aim was to introduce a healthy eating programme for school-children where healthy and local eating was encouraged and promoted. The Bite: Club is an area where children can join, get packs for their school and change their eating habits for life.
This was a project we were given to redesign the South East Queensland Museum's logo and branding. We had to create a new, modern look to promote this years Tools Of The Trade Conference.
The logo is based on primary colours and the initials of the conference.
The brief was to create an outcome that played on visual rhetoric.
Celebrity culture is everywhere. People follow the brand of a celebrity, they follow the icon it represents - however, how much of the persons words and views show through in their 'brand'? I wanted to show that much like a religion, the image of a celebrity is so powerful that often it overshadows their words whether they be positive or negative.
I created a series of posters advertising a religious festival name 'Gospel' that was headlined by various celebrities. their alleged quotes are lost in the 'brand' of the celebrity itself.
I had the exciting opportunity to create a booklet on some of Australia's famous flora and fauna.
My aim was to create a smart, modern booklet that could educate and provide insight into each plant and their medical/practical uses.
This was a font I created based on overlapping circles. The name originates from a Japanese concept where the circle is heavily featured.
The font was used in conjunction with my sushi packaging.
This is a 100% recyclable sushi box concept for use in Australian sushi restaurants. Each year, thousands of tons of plastic from sushi boxes ends up in landfills when really there are hundreds of viable alternatives.
The majority of customers eat in store yet are still given plastic trays. This concept is made from bamboo cardboard which is 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource.
We were given the brief of creating a zine to showcase yourself as a designer. I decided to take the approach further and view myself as a studio entity - how I would demonstrate this studios working's through the medium of print.
I tend to have three different aspects to work whether I be in a creative mood, a social mood or a professional mood - these moods have formed the basis of the persona's that work in this fictional studio. The zine represents my design beliefs and aspirations and my personal flaws.
These are from a collection of stamps created to highlight a specific issue in our modern society. I decided to tackle the issue of energy wastage and over consumption.
In response, these stamps are printed on 100% recyclable bamboo paper with eco-friendly inks.
