City of London Freemen’s School, 2018.
It's always a pleasure to design for The Two Imposters and especially to front a piece of new writing. 'Fox' by Harrison Rose premiered at The Old Red Lion Theatre, 2017.
Poster Design for a new exciting project with White Slate Theatre.
Such a delight to work with Dear Hunter Theatre designing for their UK tour and Edinburgh Fringe performances. This hilarious, irreverent story inspired an equal parts punchy and seedy design.
A pleasure to establish a new design for Ad Libido as it emerges from 2018’s Vault Festival and tours to Edinburgh Fringe.
The British Theatre Academy's upcoming production Adventures of Pinocchio.
A fun project converting the Accidental Collective into hanging plant-pots for the Here's Hoping artwork.
The Secret Garden returns to the West End! A pleasure to design for P2P Productions exciting production.
A current project with White Slate Theatre. As their visual artist I have the pleasure of creating photography, publicity design and projection design for their new show 'Captured'.
In The Daddy Blues, Phoebe Marsh sets out to create a new dad, a "franken-father" of her own. The artwork is centred around a key theme in the play, CSS Code. I wanted to use this to bring focus to the show's title. Combined with a vivid surgical environment I aimed to create an eye-catching visual.
This was an exciting opportunity to produce all print and digital campaign roll-out for the London premiere of Pig Farm. The play's dark and daring humour needed to be reflected in a bold, vivid design. Playing with the animation of the star pig's face and incorporating a pitchfork in the title-treatment, I aimed to reflect the show's playfulness.
It was a pleasure to create a logo design for Joshua Boxall’s sports therapy services. Together we aimed to create a strong identity for his start-up business, one that is both personable and professional.
Using the idea of recovery and mending, I experimented with separation of elements as well as circular formation to communicate the idea of full-circle recovery. Through joining elements of Joshua’s initials together, a notion of binding and fluidity was created - the result was a minimal branding that reflected the core mission of his business.
Somnio Productions were a joy to work with, giving me the flexibility to experiment with different styles to realise their rebranded logo design. The company wanted to lift the concept of their existing design into a minimal and modern design which would be used across all their business collateral, including their digital video work.
Taking a dreamcatcher as a starting point, I aimed to simplify the image using simple lines and shapes. After experimenting with different weights and styles we decided embark on a more abstract direction, adopting a geometric style and a lighter weight font.
Forever Beauty and Nails wanted to create a new logo design and identity for their marketing materials. Providing luxurious beauty treatments in a relaxing environment I wanted to establish this mood in the branding. I combined ornate patterns with an elegant serif font to reflect a sense of luxury and supported this with a warm and bright colour palette.
Angels in America is complex and symbolic exploration into AIDS and homosexuality in the 1980s. This was a great opportunity to create a symbolic design for the publicity and with the client’s permission I was able to explore the play’s material to decide upon the image. The play ends with a note of optimism for the characters and America's progression beyond the AIDS crisis. The Statue of Liberty being a symbol of freedom and one of the most iconic landmarks in America seemed to be a fitting tribute to this hope.
Design for White Slate Theatre’s touring production of ‘Your Fragrant Phantom’ was a lovely opportunity to marry production images with an art-deco 1920s feel to encapsulate the mood of this Jazz Age production. It was important to carefully measure homage to the era as well as a presenting a modern style to appeal to a wide demographic. This was realised through attention to a combination of space, colour and type.
White Slate Theatre company provided me with the rare opportunity of creating projection design for their show Captured. With a collection of photography I was to create visuals that would project onto the entire set, a back-wall of an apartment. These visuals would be triggered with the character’s retelling of her memories, so I focused on ideas of reflectiveness and memory to create appropriate mood and motion. Using projection mapping software I tailored the visuals to the set.
Music Theatre Warwick wanted to create a modern visual for their production at the Warwick Arts Centre, whilst remaining faithful to the play's iconic setting. For this project I created a range of print and digital design; including posters, flyers, programmes and clothing merchandise. The designs were also showed on digital screens and advertised with a strong social media campaign.
Harsh lighting and textures were used to create a moody visual. To give the design a modern feel I used contrasting neon piping for the title treatment to overlay the more traditional image of the barber chair.
Bristol Revunions needed an eye-catching design to stand out on The Royal Mile at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Compositing photographs of the comedy group with images of Arthur's seat, rocks and all sorts of military paraphernalia I aimed to produce a high-octane, colourful and larger than life image.
Bristol Revunions wanted to create a bold, incongruous image for their Edinburgh Fringe comedy show Cream. Taking Wes Anderson's colour palettes as inspiration, I wanted to create a minimalist design that focused on the image of the man in the raincoat and the dripping title-treatment. The resulting harsh block colours and stylised image were able to create a sense disconnect and incongruity.
The client wanted to create a striking and vivid visual to promote their piece of new writing The Daisy Chain. Encapsulating the surreal and playful elements of the show's narrative and staging, I used contrasting images to create one eye-catching composition.
A new solo performance artist's 'Immerse' theatre wanted to establish a piece of artwork that would stand out and intrigue Edinburgh Fringe festival goers. For this design I focused on composing a striking image using the iconic Barbie to demonstrate the show's title 'I'm Not Like Other Girls'. Combined with a sharp palette of colours and hand drawn title treatment I was able to create the campaign's anarchic mood.
The client wanted to create publicity artwork for their piece of new writing around the feeling of being lost. Compositing photography into a minimal and spacious design, I decided to use a warm colour palette in order to reflect the play's writing style whilst also demonstrating the feeling being lost and suspension.
Dead Posh Productions' 23.5 hours was transferred to St. James Theatre Studio, London in 2013. For this project I created artwork for publicity materials and printed invitations to the event. Through the use of space and imagery, the artwork represents the play's conjunction of entrapment and freedom.
The client wanted to create a colour palette that would indicate the 50s era, taking inspiration from the likes of The Godfather. The red, black and white colour scheme alongside the high-contrast imagery evoked this mobster vibe.
With a main theatre slot at Warwick Arts Centre this project involved creating a range of print, digital and front-of-house materials.
Bacchus, a community arts collective; working to inspire connections, creations, and collaborations in Leamington Spa approached me to be Publicity designer for their organisation.
As well as creating publicity materials for Bacchus, I also filmed and photographed each of their events. Bacchus wanted to document their events particularly to capture the atmosphere and mood.
