Nottingham –

The 40th issue of Corraini Edizioni’s non-conforming magazine Un Sedicesimo was dedicated to my collection of blue sky cutouts. I began collecting skies in 2008 as a reaction to my feelings of anxiety and melancholy. If feeling particularly low, I would cut away a segment of blue sky from the travel pages of a newspaper or magazine and preserve the sky as a souvenir of my (wistful) travels.
As “Un Sedicesimo” translates to “a sixteenth” my edition of the magazine covers the world via sixteen skies, plotting the distance between their location and my studio in Nottingham. The archive of Un Sedicesimo issues can be found here.

HunterGatherer was an exhibition of work-in-progress drawings made by students of the DRAW program at the Royal College of Art. As a Graphic Designer taking part in DRAW, I was asked to produce the exhibition identity and accompanying materials. The title of the show was a nod towards the prehistoric age of drawing and its uses as a tool for discovery. The visual design for the exhibition used rudimentary form and graphic textures to give a sense of rock and stone whilst also adopting ancient methods of mark making used in the oldest examples of drawing known to man.
