To mark the 70th anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s death, Penguin Classics planned to publish hardback editions of six titles. The patterns evoke the jazz age of Fitzgerald’s stories, giving these books the elegance and glamour of the Art Deco period: the sense of ornate detail fused with the modernist aesthetic of mechanical repetition.
The combination of metallic foil and matt paper gives a tactile enhancement to the reading experience. The type panel fits with the deco theme and is echoed on the detachable bookmarks.

The Cocktail Scarf Collection was a collection I designed of limited edition scarves to be sold in the worldwide Revolution vodka bar, to promote there cocktails and expand there brand.
I created typographic scarves to be sold with the appropriate cocktail glasses, matching coasters and a small concertina booklet showing off other scarves in the Cocktail Collection range.
Here is my University Personal Project which involved creating my own brief.
I decided to look into cosmetic surgery and why people put there bodys under such dramatic circumstances to look good.
I wanted to raise awareness for cosmetic surgery by designing a Body Shop range of products as alternatives to surgery, based on the most popular bodily issues.
The Body Shop prides itself in selling all natural products, and what could be a more natural than these?
I kept a neutral theme throughout all the products and expressed each of the needs through the bottle shape or paper art, for example, the typography on the 'boob job' bra inserts has been embossed.
Fastly approaching my final year honours project (ahhh!) looking for inspiration, ive been looking at some students from last years honours projects and the one that stuck out the most was this clever project by Carl Jeffers.
"We all know that many designers live life in the fast lane, seeking quick solutions and eating fast food, but all is not lost. Apple have decided to create a package encouraging designers to be healthier in their work place. The package addresses bad habits, poor posture, general health, and exercise.
