One of the main things I love about graphic design is how it gives me the opportunity to learn about many different subjects. One week, you may have to understand how people experience strokes, the next you may be researching biscuits. To create truly meaningful/impactful design which connects with audiences, I believe you have to be curious, and curious I am. I love history, therefore research plays a big part in my design process.
Journeymen: Migration of the Bauhauslers
A documentary about the history of the Staatliches Bauhaus made connections between the Bauhaus school, the National Socialist party and Auschwitz, and my further research revealed a surprising history encompassing communists, a cult and Nazis. ‘Journeymen: Migration of the Bauhauslers’ looks at the migration of the Bauhauslers in relation to their personal beliefs and how they affected the wider world in terms of design.
My research was self-authored and split into two publications to make explicit the connections between the Bauhaus, communists, cult members and Nazis and to ensure a consistent narrative flow. The main publication does not explore the general Bauhaus history, which has been documented extensively elsewhere. This story is visualised in an accompanying piece of printed ephemera, presented in a 3D context through paper architecture.

A Tale of Two Systems
Final Major Projectditorial & Exhibition Design
‘David Lynch: A Tale of Two Systems’ uses Kahneman’s theory of systematic thinking to discuss whether Lynch’s frequent depiction of violence against women is misogynistic or empowering.
The project consists of three outcomes: a piece of editorial, an interactive installation (which reacts to the public’s engagement to the editorial) and printed ephemera that also acts as a piece of data design.
