Photogram Manipulation, 2014.
Taking influence from the work of Garry Fabian Miller, I explored the process of creating photograms to experiment with different light effects; seeing how objects and coloured acetates can create glowing, diffused, and ambient lighting effects; to give a sense of residual light inspired by night and day.

Geometric Photograms, 2014.

Experimentation with photogram process using coloured gels and acetates to produce layered imagery, that incorporate transparency and geometry. Influenced by László Moholy-Nagy and Joesf Albers. Exploration of contour, shape and layering to form abstract compositions in which to develop print design ideas.

Light, Shadow and Space, 2014

My work explores the natural link that surface pattern design has between graphic design and textiles by handling shape, colour, image, composition and surface - implementing my design skills to create original surface designs that can be applied to either Fashion or Interiors.

This body of work displays a selection of experimental surface pattern designs derived from the theme of light, shadow and space. Inspiration taken from imagery of light and shadow present in man-made structures and spaces, this primarily being architecture, that displays geometric qualities. The results manifest themselves in geometry with emphasis on positive and negative space, irregular arrangements, and obstruction of light paths found in different spatial environments. This culminates in a body of work accentuating shape, form and contour comparable to those found in different light and shadow surroundings. 

Experimental Image-Making, 2014.

Experimental image-making with paper folding, to create abstract imagery. 

Laser-cut Alphabet, 2013. 

Type experiment looking into the structure of the alphabet, and accentuating shapes that are inherent in written language to create abstract yet recognisable letterforms. Negative shapes have been given equal notability to the positive, to create more expressive forms that culminates into a visually dynamic alphabet.

Fragmented Typography, 2013. 
Further type experiment looking into the structure of the alphabet, and accentuating shapes that are inherent in written language to create abstract yet recognisable letterforms. Negative shapes have been given equal notability to the positive, to create more expressive forms that culminates into a visually dynamic alphabet.

Linocut Typography Experiments, 2013.
Linocut typography experiments centring distortion and playing with illegibility to form an alphabet, the message ultimately being: at what point does a letter become completely illegible?
