Better Late Than Never.Following the cancellation of Central Saint Martins’ annual Degree Shows, this London-based exhibition brought together the 2020 graduates of the Graphic Communication Design Programme to King’s Cross to celebrate and showcase their respective practices. Spanning a range of creative disciplines and positions, the work on display presented some of the new and forward-thinking practices that were cultured at a time when the creative landscape was being challenged and shaped by some of the largest social, political and cultural shifts of the last century.
Better Late Than Never was organised, curated and designed by myself, Oluwatomilola Adefioye, Lili Phillips, and Rosie Stephenson. The event was supported by Central Saint Martins, Argent, EIZO and Studio Basic.

Make From Home.A small handout distributed to Graphic Communication Design students alongside a selection of bookbinding tools and equipment.

Depth of Field 2020-21.An online public lecture series that aims to question some of the most prevelent issues faced within the Graphic Communication Design industry. Coordinated by myself and others, we invite two guest speakers to present their unique perspectives and engage in a live Q&A discussion. The 2020/2021 series included speakers such as Kelly Walters and Gemma Copeland, in addition to organisations such as NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Climate Outreach, Design Observer and Thames & Hudson.

Experimentation in Type.A WIP display typeface rooted in the use of grids, curves and visual systems. Moving forward, the typeface will have no choice but to break the established design system in favour of legibility and visual consistency.
