Featured Projects:

The Market Will Regulate Itself

Neoliberal policies have shaped not only the way we live but also our society and environments. As a way of encapsulating the ideological change brought about by this ideology and its repercussions on our system, I created a sound piece mixing recorded sounds titled ‘The Market Will Regulate Itself’.

The Age Of Neoliberalism

A series of books featuring short essays around phenomenons which can be defined as manifestations of the Neoliberal system we live in: a topical and visual exploration on a range of debated contemporary issues.

Alternative Norm

Through a campaign-like approach, this project attempts to highlight the flaws within the current structural and ideological political landscape and spread ideas of change. Website: alternativenorm.cargo.site.

Bricks and Mortar

The Bricks and Mortar exhibition was set up to display and engage the public with the work of 3rd year students. These outcomes were designed as site specific mega graphics which were all installed in the city at the same time on Monday 11th November.

Collaborators: Ella Staines (Exhibition Curator & Visual Identity ), Emilia Bermejo-Ford (Editorial Design & Visual Identity )

Low Frequency

A tabloid created to celebrate the importance of the live music industry and the communities built around it, which have been put under threat following the recent pandemic. The tabloid is to be sold in support of the cultural communities, with all proceeds going to grassroots venues.

Collaborators: Leah Williams (Graphic Designer)

C.E.O.s

Speculating on daily life in Bristol, 2050, through the lens of current climate projections, the C.E.O.s* seek to engage those groups disenfranchised by current media platforms, to think differently and to engage in community focused conversations around climate issues. C.E.O.s is the end of year graphic design publication.
