Sign of the Times – NB Studio
NB Studio, Spring Chicken and Michael Wolff invited designers from all over the world to submit a design to replace the ‘Elderly People’ road sign as they felt it was ageist and outdated.

An exhibition of the designs took place at the Protein Gallery, London on the 11th – 13th of September, 2015.

Another person was given credit for my design – sad times, but I did manage to get hold of the sign as a keep sake – good times :).

Little White Lies & Ralph Steadman / Breaking Bad Exhibition
To celebrate the release of the Breaking Bad Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbooks, featuring exclusive artwork by legendary British cartoonist Ralph Steadman, Little White Lies released a creative brief to design a piece of artwork based on a memorable scene from Breaking Bad.

The brief was created to coincide with a special exhibition of exclusive hand-crafted character illustrations by Ralph Steadman, at the 71a gallery in East London. Ralph would then choose 15 of the entries to sit alongside his artwork in the exhibition.

I was extremely honoured to be one of the fifteen selected for the exhibition by Ralph. My artwork is based on the scene where Gustavo Fring is unfortunate enough to have half of his face blown off. I had a great time at the exhibition and even got to meet the main man himself.

Anorak Magazine
I was asked by Anorak to create a colouring in page for Vol.18. I thought a character with fruit on their head would be a good option.

A mash up of the typeface Akzidenz-Grotesk (Berthold Type Foundry). I made this by running the letterforms through a scanner, moving, jolting and twisting the paper to create the desired effect.
