Creative Code 2013 was a six week extra-curricular course to introduce programming to Graphic Design students at Ravensbourne College. Using Processing, the basics of programming were covered and then students were encouraged to explore further and tackle a brief or integrate creative coding into their own projects.
Logotype and branding for fashion label Asudari. The custom drawn lettering pays respect to their original logo while recognising the more mature and modern direction the label has taken. An arabic version was also created for their growing markets in the Middle East. The logo was implemented across all printed and digital mediums.
Updates to fashion photographer Alice Hawkins' portfolio site, designed and built in conjunction with M/A.
The clean and clear design sensibility is retained. Updates include creating an archive section as well as minor modifications to other sections.
M/A requested me to make an HTML5 canvas animated version of the Improbable logo. The concept was to play with pattern generation and colours used in their branding. Each time you load a page a random pattern is selected and the colours evolve continually over time, echoing their improvisational approach to theatre.
Front-end development for the new Hempstead May website, designed and built by digital agency M/A. Hempstead May are a retouching and post-production company, so attention to presenting their images was paramount.
Wiggle Wicket was an Android tablet app used across the summer England tests and FLT20 series allowing spectators at the match to take a photo of themselves and friends and these heads were stitched onto a humourous cricket-based dance video. The video could then be viewed and shared across social media.
Alex Hammond and Mark Whitby developed a concept for a unique and stylish clock. I was asked to create a digital version to use on the promotional website and as a screensaver application.

A touchscreen kiosk application, positioned in Airport terminals around the globe. The application allowed a person buying a bottle of Baileys to make a personalised gift tag with either their own message or a choice of pre-written ones. The message was then printed onto special Baileys gift tags via a printer connected to the kiosk.

Freelance designer and developer with six years experience. I studied graphic design and taught myself programming in pursuit of a passion for interaction. This has lead me to designing and building websites; apps for tablet, mobile and desktop; and interactive experiences; but I also enjoy doing branding and identity work and I am comfortable working in print. I am a sessional lecturer at Ravensbourne College of Art & Design, working with Graphic Design and the Digital Advertising course. Most recently I devised a six week Creative Coding course for Graphic Design students.
