Biography

I am a self-taught multidisciplinary designer who has a passion for branding, digital media and eating sushi. I am an open minded, fast learning innovator who’s always exploring new things. During my 3 years at Bedford, I had won a YCN Student Award, was offered an internship at Williams Murray Hamm in London and received mentoring from Bonfire’s creative director Stephen Judge. I aspire to inspire and want to leave my mark on the world through ideas and visuals.

Brief: esign a suite of branding assets for one of the trading groups within the Wells & Co. pub offer
Solution / Concept: One of the three trade groups aim to appeal towards a consumer group with higher affluence. To achieve this, I created sleek and minimal branding to convey luxury and class. The combination of colour and type creates a modern identity that exudes elegance, differentiating this sector from the other two without breaking its connection back to Wells & Co. by utilising the triangular pattern.

Customers will receive a unique customisable key fob upon registration which has a gemstone embedded in it, acting as a physical identifier of their loyalty to Dishoom. This key fob acts as a creative and culturally significant replacement for a loyalty card.

Solution / Concept: The Whole Truth is an awareness campaign that aims to reform government policy.
The name is a play on the words ‘whole’ and ‘hole’, which refer to the holes within the government budget, the metaphorical holes in children’s stomachs that convey hunger, and how the public deserves to know the whole truth about how the government is tackling the situation.
