My practice combines both illustration and graphic design, I love to experiment with type and illustration, playing with compositions my work visually communicates environmental and social issues through design, colour and image making.
Please tell us about your final year project
My final projects explored two different subject areas. One visually explored our city, looking at utopia and dystopia I created illustrations of a utpoic vision of a sustainable city, then created a flip side dystopic vision of a unsustainable city, the project consisted of prints and a risograph publication communicating how to make our city more sustainable, juxtaposed with how we are living in a unsustainable city. My second project Street View offered a visual exploration of Yanaka, Tokyo, travelled virtually through google maps, Street View is a combination of reportage illustrations, type and street signs creating playful compositions which document my virtual journey.
How have you found your course/time at Brighton?
I have really enjoyed the course! Being in the same studio as graphic design has really influenced my work, giving me the opportunity to surround myself with designers, giving me confidence in my practice. The tutors have been really supportive of my work and pushed my development from a more abstract illustrator to a visual communicator.
What are your plans after Graduation?
I am currently designing the visual identity for a festival in 2020, after I plan to intern and carry on working freelance!
