GONE IS MY OLD TUMBLR WORK BLOG. HERE IS MY NEW WORK SITE.

I Have edited my portfolio heavily and it still needs some work but I have put a few pieces of my design and photography up for you too see. Over the years I will slowly build on it. Nothing special yet!

ADVERTISING DESIGN

For the Barnes and Noble brief of ‘create a tote bag and correlating stationary under the theme back to school’ I decided to try and do something original and not as straightforward as i think the tutors may have wanted (the idea of design here is very straight down the line, not that thas a bad thing, but just different to what im used to.) So I used  Bubble painting as part of my design. It plays upon the idea of the ‘thought bubble’. It alludes to the idea of thoughts occurring in the brain  during the school day, constantly developing.. It can also appeal to a mass audience. Here are photographs of two of the images i used.

Went to the cutest restaurant for lunch/tea/supper -ABC Kitchen. Had the best burger ever. wow. Had the coolest interior, vintage chic, glass cabinets, old wood dressers, chintz plates (all off ebay) and distressed wooden dressers mixed with modern minimalist paintings and wall installations.amazing.

I had nothing planned, after suggesting to my friend we get a group together she said everyone was busy so we were going to ‘have  a small dinner just 4 girls.’ Unaware I walked into the restaurant (Indochine an amazing Vietnamese‎ restaurant with a kind of 40’s feel in NOHO) to see 13 of  my gorgeous friends who shouted ‘surprise’! Literally one of the best moments of my twenty one years.
