Design Specification
Atomic Design System

A comprehensive 66 page design specification, documenting all user interface elements for an application to be used in a clinical trial. The specification document uses the atomic design system methodology; all interface elements are broken down into their component parts and then assembled firstly into modules (molecules) then into groups of modules (organisms) and finally into templates and page examples. Short interactive prototypes were also produced to demonstrate important points of user interaction.

Vue Cinemas
Promotional Material

After winning Vue as a client, we were inundated with projects that needed conceptualising. In teams of 2-3 we set about developing concepts and creative ideas that could stretch across different mediums. Projects that I was involved in include Thor, October Half Term, Halloween and Christmas as well as the pitch itself. As well as working on a conceptual level for Vue I have also worked to develop concepts and ideas, bringing them to life visually, ready to be artworked for the cinemas. One of these projects being for the film ‘Rush’. Here I took reference from the film and collateral produced for the feature. A worn checkered flag was used to highlight the classic F1 battle.

Balmaha Brewing
Bottle Lables and Web Design

The Balmaha Brewing Company had secured land around Loch Lomond to build their new brewery. We were tasked with branding their lead ales, creating an emblem to tie them together as well a designing the site to showcase them on. The results took reference from the surrounding area and key landmarks as well as objects, possessions and artefacts related to the Balmaha Brewing Co. We commissioned Iain McIntosh (a local Glaswegian) to illustrate the labels. The final products can be viewed on their website.

Visa
Olympic Infographic

Role: Interrogating and interpreting a client report. Conceptualising, illustrating and designing an informative print & web based graphic. Storey-boarding and creating assets for motion graphic version. As a sponsor of the London 2012 games, Visa wanted to promote the economic legacy that the UK could benefit from, not only during the games, but extending over the next 5 years. A report was produced and we interpreted this data to visualise the information in an engaging way. Both a print and web version were created alongside a motion graphic. Since the publication and success of the Olympic infographic, Visa has approached us a number of times to create more informative graphics for various different parts of their business. They are seen as an integral way of communicating complicated information in an illustrative and engaging manner. They have dedicated a web page to showcase these infographics.

ScottishPower
Infographic

Role: Interrogating and interpreting a client report. Conceptualising, illustrating and designing an informative print & web based graphic. Storey-boarding and creating assets for motion graphic version.  ScottishPower, along with all other energy and gas suppliers in the UK, are now obliged by a Government incentive – aimed at reducing carbon emissions – to help install Smart Meters in customers’ homes. I was tasked with helping to communicate this incentive to customers by producing an informative graphic that would dispel the myths around Smart Meters. The static infographic was later adapted into a short informative motion graphic that is available to view on ScottishPower's website.

Signs of the Time
Books

Role: Concept, photography, design and book binding. A two-part set of books which delve into the world of signage, focusing on authority, obedience and the notion of free will. By examining the sign in context and then later separating it from its environment, it is possible to alter perception and find meaning in what is absent. The books challenge the authoritarian style of signage and focus on the ways in which we navigate – mainly through object rather than context.
