I’m Charlie Cheshire, I’m 22 and from London. My interest in design has always been there from a young age starting with comic books and Pixar films. As I’ve gotten older I came to really appreciate design in a broader sense which led me to CSAD. During my time at CSAD my understanding of design has greatly improved and I’ve experienced some great briefs. My time spent completing my ISTD this year has really made me fall in love with type, an area of design I’d struggled with before. Moving forward I hope to keep working on editorial and branding projects but open to trying my hand with any type of brief. I will soon be starting a spray-painted mural in about a month’s time as one of my other interests of design is street art.
Try Their Skin
Final Major Project
My project was intended to be an educational pack. The pack looks at teaching school children about the struggles a sufferer of any particular medical condition may face, with the aim of having medical sufferers integrated more into communities. The educational pack included a binder full of learning booklets each tailored for a specific medical condition. The accompanying interactive animation would then use mental (blue), physical (red), and social (green) prompts, specific to the chosen illness, to simulate the day to day struggles a sufferer may go through.
The interactive experience is made to be overwhelming to reflects how medical sufferers often feel. Due to the recent pandemic, it was hard to produce the interactive element but I made a mock-up of how it may look. Displayed are mock-ups of how the pack itself would look as well as posters to promote it.

I hope to showcase the mundane and
weird yet wonderful numbers around the
World Cup using the personal storyline of
my grandfather, my father, and myself
I chose to focus my outcome on the significance of the numbers involved in the FIFA World Cup. After extensive research, I decided I would centre my outcome around the FIFA World Cup. Football is a sport dominated by numbers, there are 11 men on each team, both teams try to score a higher value of goals than the other, etc. The World Cup in particular only happens every 4 years and once the event does arrive it becomes the sole focus of millions of people. A number of select countries partake in a 3-week long tournament to see who is crowned the global champions of the next 4 years until it can all happen again. This sense of history and tradition through the World Cup doesn’t only affect the tournament itself but influences generations of families, in particular my own.
I hope to showcase the mundane and the weird yet wonderful numbers around the World Cup using the personal storyline of my grandfather, my father, and myself. The significance and effect of the numbers are different depending on where you’re from, what generation you are born in etc. By mapping each tournament from my grandfather’s first memories of the 1966 World Cup up to my own memories of more recent tournaments I hope to showcase the importance such events have had on mapping out my family members’ lives. Going forward I looked to merge the statistical element and the personal elements throughout the timeline differentiating through typefaces and different systems. The piece itself looks to be both a personal story but also a documentation of the history of the World Cup over its almost 100-year history.
