I am a Welsh designer born in Cardiff. I enjoy movies, games, reading, baking and conspiracy theories or anything that promotes discussions. I specialise in print based graphic design with digital areas included. I believe printed matter reflects strongly on us as a practice and supports what we are trying to represent in the industry. Print related medias are something that I enjoy and find that getting the right quality and feel of the medium, shows my preferences and areas that I best feel comfortable and suited towards.
#Tech.NO is a D&AD project using typography meets techno music to help address net neutrality and the impact of data stealing in conjunction with people having no protection against them or often forgetting what they are agreeing to in the terms and conditions. The techno music was chosen due to it implications with modern music and the use of technology, which seems to be the biggest issue with data protection. The true aim of this project is to raise attention to what people agree to and see if they can start taking true measure against data hacking and lawful data stealing.
The audience was aimed for teenagers through to young adults as they are the most commonly affected by data stealing but it is not limited to this audience. It is effectively for anyone who has social media accounts or uses data in any way, shape or form.
The outcomes consisted of creating a Vinyl cover with sleeve, hacked poster, snapchat filter and RFID phone case. All using the theme #Tech.NO in order to signify the dislike against third party data laws and privacy issues that exist within our world and supported by social media platforms.
The true aim of this project is to raise
attention to what people agree to and see

data hacking & lawful data stealing.
It was an in-depth exploration based
around graphic design with product
design terminology and psychological aspects
to help justify terms and approaches.
Applying Product Terms to Graphics
My Dissertation Design project was to design my Dissertation in a way that best highlights and showcases the content to whichever way I deemed suitable. Each section was made to be different because it reflects what each chapter is trying to do. Whether it be emotional connections. Questioning why something was made this way or even a collage/ scrapbook effect. I made this project more psychological meets editorial.
The audience for this was mainly the tutors but also other students who wanted to see some past examples of what could be done. This also extends to a wider audience as it could be used as part of academical research or a graphic study. As well as anybody who wished to see what examples already existed of this application towards that of graphics as it is an uncommon exploration.
The outcome consisted of multiple double page spreads that contained my actual dissertation that was used for my final year. It was a complex in depth exploration based around graphic design with product design terminology added as well as psychological aspects to help justify terms and approaches.
