‘After university I moved back to Birmingham and started working at Keane Brands mainly working with Web Design as well as bits of illustration and artworking.
My work is all about process, and the way in which you can take, overlay and re-use different aspects of your design from its design process, so like taking initial ideas, scribbles and marks and incorporating them will the final outcome. I’m always looking for new techniques to achieve greater and interesting results. For example, to create the Merrymouth album cover I used close up scans of the clothes in my wardrobe to create the floral patterns.’
‘Influences are Illustrations created by SamSmith of Neasden Control Centre and Don Pendleton, particularly his designs for alien workshop decks. I Love the relationship between design and music, two of my favourite things so am always looking to collaborate and take on projects which incorporate the two, I am currently in the initial stages of Working with record label Swamp 81 to develop their website.
After creating the artwork and press pack release for Nick Olivetti inspired by the theme of a rorschach test creating different ink blots which make up the design. The Animation for Gangstar was was created using the iPhone App GlitcheApp to create a whole bunch of 3 second clips to be edited and re used to make trippy but interesting visuals which I feel go great with the track!’
