Graphic Design - BA (Hons)

I am a graphic designer based in the UK with 3 years’ experience in book cover design, logo design, brand identity, and information design. I specialize in editorial design and poster design but am always open to working on new and different projects. I enjoy exploring different themes and concepts and view it as an opportunity to grow as a designer.

For my final major project, I designed a book containing stories from different people of different genders and ages from the UK about their experience with the Covid-19 pandemic. This particular project took on inspiration from ‘Working’ by Studs Terkel as well as the covid-19 pandemic. I use gradients in my book as a way to showcase the emotions and feelings that are being portrayed by each individual. The purpose of this book is to give a voice to those who feel like they haven’t been heard during the pandemic and to give them a space to share their experience. It presents readers something to relate to and gives validation to the different hardships that people have gone through.
