Data Walking


I was fortunate enough to have my work feature in David Hunters Data Walking book that looked into gathering environmental data and how it could be visualised.


"Data Walking is a funded research project exploring the potential of walking to gather environmental data and through multiple walks and visualisations build a rich picture of that area. The project examines technology and tools for creative data gathering and experimenting with data visualisation, to create tools, gain insight, and share knowledge."


[Insert Sport Here]


Earlier this year a friend and I decided to set up a sport focused design blog called [Insert Sport Here] or [ISH] for short. It didn't go well... we wrote four articles and realised it was quite a lot of effort and couldn't come up with ideas for articles. Who knew it would be so hard!


But while coming up with [ISH] we decided we wanted a strong and flexible identity that would work across reporting on multiple sports. With the name 'Insert Sport Here' we came up with the idea to replace the brand name with the sport, [F1] or [Cycling] for example. This meant we could make it clear what we were reporting in a very simple and clear way.





Monotony is a month long project to help visualise the feeling that you are doing the same thing day in day out. Spending a large proportion of your time sitting in the car driving the same way to and from work along the same route, seeing the same thing, makes that time seem like it has been wasted.





d0_0dle is an interactive piece of software that gets people to doodle on images just as they would on a newspaper but digitally. Coded by myself the pre selected images would be drawn on by the user and then automatically uploaded to Twitter, with the option for it to be tweeted to the drawer.



British Racing Green


Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and British based Constructors have seen huge amounts of success since 1958 when the Constructors Championship started. This book helps visualise the success of the British based teams that ran in 2014 and tell the story of their history in F1. British Racing Green also has an interactive element to it where you can compare the teams rise and fall in the Constructors Championship.



Pixel Albums


The original idea behind Pixel Albums was to see how much you can remove from an image before it becomes unrecognisable. Using code I have edited album covers from my favourite music artists into these pixelated images that still in theory will resemble the original covers.


While the first series of Pixel Albums did not fully explore how far you can remove the image before you cannot tell what it was or what the image actually shows. For the second series of Pixel Albums this is what is going to be explored.



Integrated Branding


The brief was to work on a design for a brand for an online art house film company. I decided to base mine around Science Fiction and called it AV.



Imgur Coloring Book


I had my work selected to be in Imgur’s adult colouring book that was put together to raise money for the Dig Deep charity. The black and white outlined image used for the published book was developed from an older project developed for a Creative Coding exhibition at Ravensbourne. Randomly generated lines controlled by a Xbox Kinect sensor were put into Illustrator to then create this ‘Explosion’ pattern.
