Fenial — Type Specimen, 2017 — Buy Font / Trial


Fenial is a typeface inspired by the look of many gothic blackletter scripts that utilise pointed terminals and sharp serifs, combined with the characteristics of some realist typefaces. Fenial’s name is derived from the word Finial meaning “an ornament at the top, end, or corner of an object, often formed to be a decorative feature”. This book is a specimen for the typeface. Fenial started an exploration into type design, and was developed over several months into a single weight typeface. 9 x 24cm, Ring-bound, 56 pages.
A Blue, White, Green and Brown Jewel — Book, 2017


A research investigation into the societal effects of space exploration and the cultural narrative it has developed. The book explores several case studies where artists and designers have interacted with and reinterpreted the world of space exploration and celebrates the design of the counter-culture magazine The Whole Earth Catalog and the human side of space exploration. 12.5 x 20cm, Perfect-bound, 120 pages.
New York Mozart Festival — Identity, 2016


A festival based in the Culture Shed in midtown Manhattan celebrating the life and work of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart through classic recitals and modern adaptations. The identity works around the animated 'M' which serves as the logo and also a frame for imagery.
De Cecco — Packaging, 2016


Visual identity and packaging for De Cecco pasta. The De Cecco company produces hundreds of different types of pasta and pasta-related products, and this concept attempts to categorise this into a minimalistic yet sophisticated brand identity. Each product is easily identifiable and differentiated by its bold titling and numeric typographic system.
Food Packaging (Selection) — Packaging, 2016


A selection of food packaging designed whilst at the School of Visual Arts, under Louise Fili.
"Help Is On The Way" — 3D Design, 2016


Saluting the work of Good Samaritans over the past 100 years, “Help Is on the Way!” is a satirical “museum” of vehicles designed in an attempt to help others. Using photographs from the last 100 years, students chose means of transportation, and created vehicles designed to deliver help. I created 3 pairs of 'therapeutic' roller skates for New Yorkers who are tired of walking on hard surfaces all day. 16.03.16 — 09.04.16, SVA Gramercy Gallery, 209 E 23rd St, NYC, curated by Kevin O'Callaghan.
Ghost Signs — Newspaper, Editorial, 2015


A newspaper about South London's Ghostsigns – fading painted signs and advertisements of times past. The newspaper documents a handful of existing signs and explores their importance and place within the community. 21 x 29.7cm, 8 pages, 1 colour on newsprint.
