↑ Monster Children magazine layout, 2nd year Uni assignment. Article against the sterile and bleak environment of hospitals, and how that affects mood and healing. Original concept, content and photography.

 
 

↑  À la carte Menu for Ananas Bar and Brasserie in The Rocks, Sydney. Client work.

 

↑  Photography for a piece on the ethics of mascots. Uni assignment. 

 
 

↑ Unfinished short animation. Follows the story of a person that can't be happy unless they're doing something creative, and how that affects their quality of life, shot from their hand. Click here to view the comic I made previously which this is based on.

 
 

 ↑    I like to compose music on my long train trips between home and Central. I’ve learned that good Midi keyboards are large, and small Midi keyboards aren't good. This is a project I've been working on for a couple of years in an attempt to solve that. It's a keyboard that splits into modular octaves with different interfaces like knobs and drum pads that can be added in at either end or even in the middle of the keyboard. It can be stacked vertically in a backpack. Pitched it to two industrial design tutors at a previous Uni but it hasn't got anywhere. Yet.

 
 

 Alphabet of Rope knots. Brief was to create an illustrated alphabet, I challenged myself to literally depict the objects I was illustrating within the typography, as part of the letter. I invented a few fake knots along the way. 

 

↑ Miscellaneous work for German restaurant Bavarian Bier Café. Client.

CRITIQUE EVERYTHING

← This project started as a way to annoy owners of vehicles plastered with “Fuck off we're full” stickers and the like, but in 2009 it quickly turned into a physical representation of the internets ‘like’ and ‘dislike’ buttons. There was a tumblr page to post photos and there were plans to sell thumbs up and thumbs down stickers online. Unique serial numbers/url on “like” and “dislike” stickers could lead the recipient to the website to view a rationale of why the person posting felt the way they did and possibly justify or react within the comments. I dubbed the project “Critique Everything”.

 


 
 

↑ A reimagining of the introductory credit sequence to a James Bond film. I wanted to push myself when it came to designing movements that worked well with the music i'd chosen. Uni assignment. 

 
 

↑ Glitch art. Made for fun and/or album artwork for my music.

 

↑ Magazine layout, Uni assignment. Experimented with printing and scanning, using sandpaper, and overlaying type over itself multiple times.

A USEFUL PORTFOLIO

I’m a firm believer that anything print can do, digital can do better, except when its edible, novel and printed on awesome stock. If you liked what you saw above, why not invite me and this ridiculous folio in? When I made it, my goal was to hopefully appeal to the right kind of employers, people and companies that value interesting ideas and lateral approaches to problems and briefs.
