Work for get your foot in the door pamphlet

Just some stuff i'm working on for a pamphlet that is contributing to our Idiom based end of year publication.

A little series I took into silkscreen. Illustrating the dying tourist scene that is Bournemouth Pier and its surroundings.

Albin Holmqvist

Some more very lovely work by the talented Mr Holmqvist. Loving his use of Typography. V. clever indeed.

I do like to be beside the Imax

Project based around the death of my hometown Bournemouth. Its seaside view is now scarred by a massive Imax. The original draw to Bournemouth's seaside is now masked by clubbing and university students. What happened to all its charm?

Albin Holmqvist

Just found this now by Art Director Albin Homqvist. Really relates back well to my Vous Parlez English series. Homqvist says of the project:An experiment based around language, if you take folkloric swedish sayings and translate them literally, will all sense be lost? Are there equivalent sayings in other countries?
Those where questions i asked myself when i created my contribution to the "From Sweden with love" exhibition that me and my friend Shahin Haghjou curated. They are also a lot more visual than mine. DAMN. Is making me want to return to the porject and expand on the idea though. Which can only be a good thing.

Vous parlez English?

A new postcard/ stationary set playing on things I heard over a recent ski trip being used in the wrong context by both nationalities. I decided to play on this and create translations of some colloquial phrases. Still working on them and need to design the packaging for them.

London reasearch

On my last trip to London to drop off a portfolio I had a longggggggg gander, as I always do at the stationary section in Selfridges. These were some of my favorite bits on sale. As well as this there are a couple of pictures of my mum's design studio. Some of my favorite interior designers and their books. Pattern has always been a large part of my life, so I thought I would give you a few references.
