This was my entry into the 2016 penguin book cover competition. I chose to redesign the cover of 'In Cold Blood' by Truman Capote and attempted to highlight the significance of the 'American dream' as a theme of the novel.

In 2017 I was asked by Glasgow based author Callum McSorley to design the cover for his second volume of short stories entitled “Fresh Blood Orange”. The title of the book is an example of a ‘before and after’ clue. I used this along with the tone of the book as inspiration for the design.

The task of this college brief was to create 20 hand-generated typographical panels inspired by a quote of our choosing as well as a screen printed typographical poster. We also had to record the details of the process through the production of a short video.

Alastair Roberts is a long established, Glasgow based folk singer whose album 'Too Long In This Condition' is made up of historical folk songs which have been given a new lease of life by Alastair and his band. At college we were tasked with redesigning the LP cover for the album using the idea of 'condition' as our inspiration.

For my first year graded unit project the brief was to redesign the Glad Café's monthly events listings brochure.  Part of the brief was to come up with a design concept which could be rolled out over the following months brochures. Using the café's target market and atmosphere as inspiration I based my design on the concept of 'exploration.'
