Exhibition Graphics, The Story of Lowther
Lowther Castle is a beautiful ruined castle in the Lake District with a fascinating history. It has undergone a dramatic transformation into an intriguing visitor attraction with planting schemes designed by Dan Pearson within the castle walls. Part of the transformation was a new exhibition telling the story of the castle and the Lowther family through the years. Working with 3D designers Drinkall Dean I designed all the graphics for the exhibition.
This exhibition was the first major retrospective for British photographer Edwin Smith in the Architecture Gallery at RIBA. I was responsible for all the graphic design for the exhibition. Drinkall Dean were the 3D Designers.
Exhibition Graphics & Branding
Holkham Hall is a Palladian Hall, the centre of a thriving 25,000 acre agricultural estate on the north Norfolk coast and the ancestral home of the Earl of Leicester. Working with Drinkall Dean we developed and designed an interactive exhibition – Field to Fork – telling the story of farming past and present on the Holkham Estate. As part of the project I designed a mascot – Barney the owl – which features in the exhibition and also on a range of merchandise.
BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE
London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival relaunched in 2014 as BFI FLARE. In keeping with the new name I was tasked with taking the spirit of the festival and embodying it in an image. Working with photographer Vanessa Lockett we photographed a model painted in UV body paint and the resulting striking photos were used across the whole campaign, posters, brochure, website and social media.

Design of ENB's Annual Review. An A4 56 page book

Branding, print, & online campaign
Hidden Treasures is a project run by the Collections Trust which brings Museums and Galleries together through events and workshops that showcase items in their collections not usually on display to the public. After a very successful first year they needed a new brand and print collateral to raise their profile. I worked with another designer Rachael Lightowler to design a logo and brand for the project, which was very successful.
Physics Outreach booklet This is a booklet I designed to appeal to secondary school pupils - specifically girls – to educate and encourage them to pursue a career in physics.
The Geek Calendar was a project about geeks, by geeks, in support of geeks – conceived by a group of colleagues to raise money for the Libel reform campaign in conjunction with English PEN. It featured celebrities such as Brian Cox and Jonathan Ross. I designed the cover as a colourful pie-chart, representing a year broken down into 365 days and highlighting lots of significant geeky events. It raised over £16,000 for charity, made the Guardian.com frontpage and was one of the Independent's list of 10 Best Calendars.
I designed a new logo for Lowther Castle. Based on versions of the family crest through the years I designed and drew a new dragon for the logo.
