Critical Paper Book

Psychology book Cover


The brief was to publish my Critical Paper as a printed book.

My critical Paper was entitled Psychology led Design – Investigating the Potential for Graphic (Communication) Design to Positively Facilitate a Better Learning Experience for Young Boys Through the Foundation Phase in Wales.

My research question was – By using some the finding of child psychologists and ideas from radical thinkers who have helped to shape the early years Foundation Phase we have in our Primary schools today, can I as a designer significantly improve the learning experiences of the rising number of young boys struggling to learn?

The finished book is 48 pages plus cover and was printed by Blurb. I took photographs of children in the Y1 class I help out in, centering on their hands doing things. I then digitally manipulated the images to create bright and colourful colours with which to base my colour palette.

Here are a few sample spreads.

D&AD Competition

The brief was to choose from one of this year’s top five films, and create my own unique cover for Little White Lies magazine. I screen-printed my image of the main character, Smiley, this allowed me to produce multiple colour ways. The background image is taken from an imprint of a piece of soundproofing, featured a lot in the film. My approach was to create the feel of a cold war poster produced around the time the film was set.

RSA Student Design Awards

The RSA Student Design Award brief for 2011/12

To Inspire the nation with a set of Royal Mail Special Stamps

World with a Future
The brief was to design a set of stamps as a means of encouraging consumers to make positive environmental changes and educate future generations with regard to energy conservation, low-impact transport, zero-carbon housing, and reducing water over-consumption.

This set of stamps is aimed at families with young children. Families, including my own, consume large amounts of food, generate a lot of waste, grow out of and wash a lot of clothes. Not to mention all the ferrying the kids around! I wanted my stamps to appeal to children because they are the future. I have made them bright and colourful with a simple direct style which conveys the message clearly but in a child friendly way without alienating the adults!

In my second set of stamps I have tried to convey the message that the everyday objects that people throw away are beautiful, have a value, should be re-used and then recycled.
