The International Journal of Clinical Skills is a valuable source of information for the medical industry, and I have been involved with the project since 2008. The client requires design, layout, and illustration work that represents the journal in an authoritative and engaging way. I am also involved in the design of the identities for the publishing (SkillsClinic), and online video (CliniTube) elements of the business.

Hydros promote awareness of global environmental issues. On a recent trip to Iceland, we saw the real impact of global warming on the glaciers. Hydros used these images to highlight the issue in an online campaign. The images provided visual evidence of global warming. There were areas of Iceland that previously would have been covered in ice, but they were now slowly disappearing.
Oncobiologics are a US based organisation that provides development services to the biopharmaceutical industry. They required an interactive online presentation to create awareness and encourage funding from the government to develop the project further. One of their key aims is to help find a cure for cancer.

Visual artists are often inspired and influenced by accidents and experiments - a piece of corroding material could be the inspiration for a new design or piece of art. The images contained within this book are the results of corrosion, defacing, or error. The resultant images are light blurs, corroding materials, layers and collages that are new forms of ‘accidental art.’
For the layout of this book, the images are arranged on the page at angles, to represent the randomness in the
creation of the original images.

These series of works are based around the themes of visual communication and information overload. An initial inspiration for the artworks was the ‘test card’ screen shown when TV stations (such as the BBC in the UK) finished broadcasting for the evening.
We live in times where large parts of the population of the world have access to 24-hour information and communication methods, via the internet or through mobile phones. This amount of information can be overwhelming. The previous generation were restricted by TV channels ending broadcasts late evening. There was no internet or mobile phones, and news updates were obtained via newspapers or TV / radio updates.
These artworks are created by digitally recycling this visual information into new multi-layered, mixed-media artworks. The artworks contain news headlines, distorted imagery and abstracts from various information sources – both online and offline. The title of each piece is taken from a news headline, with further related text contained within the artwork.

Friction creates heat...
Since 2009, there is a higher percentage of the worlds’ population living in cities than in rural areas (source: United Nations Population Division). This density and constant contact between people can have dramatic outcomes, both positive and negative. Cities are a melting pot where all backgrounds, cultures and opinions mix together. People visit and live there to gain new opportunities and experiences, and people move out of cities for a quieter and less chaotic life.
The artworks contained within this book are photos that are distorted digitally to represent this friction that we have within our cities. The ‘glitches’ within each piece represent excitement and tension, conflict and bonding. These works are also being shown as part of the Independents Biennial in Liverpool 2014.

This book is a tribute to the design of music packaging and artwork. It takes inspiration from one of the most famous album covers, Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon.’ The title ‘Jewel’ is taken from the name of CD cases, and it also describes a time when the act of buying music seemed more special. This project is a statement about the decline in physical music packaging, and the move towards digital downloads. For me, this has distracted greatly from the experience of buying music.
