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.
This project could not have happened without Rebecca Ross (Project Leader), Jacob Watmore (Events Coordinator), and Jake Dow-Smith (Web Designer).

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.As a Central Saint Martins graduate, I was asked to design a small handout that would be distributed to Graphic Communication Design students alongside a selection of provided tools and equipment. The design uses abstract shapes that represent the contents of the toolkit. The use of colour, shape and gravity suggest a sense of playfulness in keeping with the nature of Make From Home and the equipment included in the initiative.

Mixed Pickles.Inspired by historical documents from Jewish refugee camps, this page-spread and activity encourages a therapeutic writing exercise aimed at vulnerable families. Born out of a collaboration between Knowledge Quarter and The Wiener Holocaust Library, the project was included as part of Playground; an annual zine in which I also contributed to the design and manufacture.

From the Story Garden.Yukari Ono and I collaborated with Make @ Story Garden and Global Generation in the development of a visual language and brand/identity for this London-based community outreach initiative. The campaign, headed by a small public garden centred in the Kings Cross area, was launched as a response to the COVID-19 lockdown. The initiative aimed to bring the garden into the homes of vulnerable families; providing light entertainment and healthy exercises.
With thanks to Yukari Ono (Co-Designer), Georgia Jacob, Martina Mina and Kiloran O’Leary.
