My first job after leaving college

After leaving USB2U I moved

the job done, working with two 3D
designers and also another 2D designer

Ford, Nissan, Volvo and Dacia.
Renault - Eden Project
A fun project working in partnership
with the Eden Project, creating vehicle
wraps for Renaults electric vehicles.
My idea behind this was to re-create
the hexagonal pattern from the biomes
and wrap them around the vehicles,
tying them in with the botanical garden

Nissan - N-GAGE Gathering
A proposed secret gig event for Nissan
involved a series of branding which
included creating the logo, designing car
graphics and shipping containers. The
event was a treasure hunt for all Nissan
car owners. The object was for them to
find secret gigs dotted around the UK.
Each shipping container they discovered
hosted a surprise music artists.

I went on to design the front web page so as applicants could
sign up to the treasure hunt and download the UI app on their
Hyundai - Tucson Test Drive Website
This was a website that I generated for all Hyundai
dealerships to use as their go to when booking in test
drives with potential customers, allowing the customers
to pick a car and road route of their choice.
Renault - DJ BBQ
One of my favourite Renault jobs was
making the DJ BBQ food truck. Working
with Christian (DJ BBQ) to re-create his
logo and then draw up a concept for
the truck. We went all out on this adding
flame throwers, mechanised speakers
which emerged from the roof and mixing
decks on the inside.
The biggest challenge on this was setting
the flames up for print so they would not
distorted by the corrugated steel walls.
Peugeot - New 3008
One of the most recent jobs I worked
on was for the New Peugeot 3008,
generating a holding page for the release
and also a kit consisting of pull-up
banners and 3m walls to support the car
on its stand for unvealing.
Rolls-Royce - Wraith
Another challenging project, which
involved a lot of calculations in order to
work out the dimensions such as height
and gradient of the waved plinth.
Mazda - All-New Mazda2
This was a budget proposal for secret beatboxers to pull people out of the crowd
to unveal the all-new Mazda2. Mazda specifically asked for an urban theme so thats
exactly what I gave them, incorporating both beatboxing and graffiti.
Ive seen them live
Life studying Art & Design at Northampton College
College for me was one of the best
times of my life. I met amazing people,
travelled a lot and most importantly
gathered inspiration for the start of my
design career. I kickstarted my freelance
design work creating gig posters for the
music department at college, making a
name for myself.
Various Gig Posters
A variety of gig posters I put together in my days
at college. Two of them were for the college
music department for their seasonal gigs at the
Roadmender in Northampton and the other for an
up and coming band from my neighborhood.
Photo manipulation project, taking
photographs of an abandoned factory
in Northampton and placing them into
Photoshop transforming them into
something from the past, showing age
and cosmetic damage.
Book cover design. I combined various images to create a winter
landscape within photoshop with imported vectors designed in Illustrator
such as the blurb.
Narcotic Mamba Vinyl
A concept for a 12-inch single I put together for an alternative
psychedelia band using blends to forge the front cover.
First steps into the working world withHoax Studios
At Hoax Studios I experienced the
creation of such works as, Alan Moores
Dodgem Logic The Possibility of Life
on Another World and music artist
Jay Leightons album, poster art and
video. Through Hoax my skills in
customer relations increased. I gathered
knowledge in how to approach and
converse with customers from all
backgrounds and learnt how to manage
Getting to grips with commercial layout atLike Minds
At Like Minds I worked close with
the design team on various internal
communication campaigns. Working
with senior designers allowed me to
learn and gather more knowledge
throughout the lines of Graphic Design.
