After hearing about the plethora of stamps available in Japan, I was inspired to use my skills to create a personalised itinerary for a recent trip to there. This itinerary was to be the home for the beautiful stamps I collected whilst overseas.
The Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) has been known to be notiriously hard to understand. As part of the wider project my team was involved in, we set out to understand why people were signing up, what impact this was having for them, and how we could help make it easier to understand what this was. Home is the result of gamifying the ETS to help visualise various scenarios before signing up.
Tangible Tales is the documentation of designers at play with the materiality of sound. By adopting an interdisciplinary methodology, It explores how we can make the intangible tangible. This is perhaps not in measured ways, but through forms that foster a haptic/spiritual connection with the sounds we produce and encounter every day. Accompanying our installation is a publication of our experiments that showcases the journey we took to get here.
I aimed to create a publication that communicated how I felt about the works of Studio Pacific - unique, contemporary and bold. The cover and case - inspired by the Taipakupaku house - were both laser cut with the case left in its raw unvarnished state to convey a pacific look of driftwood. Patterns featured throughout the book have also been influenced from patterns found throughout the Taipakupaku house.
The ISTD brief, the Undiscovered Country, prompted an investigation into the causes and interpretation of the last minutes of flight TE–901, that crashed into Mount Erebus, Antarctica. Through the use of iconography, typography, colour and maps, I aimed to retell the tragic story that lead to the deadly crash that killed all 257 people on board.
As part of the 2016 Festa Biennial Festival of Transitional Architecture on the theme of ‘Lean Means’ my team was tasked with visualising, developing and installing a pavilion using only reclaimed or repurposed material. Collaborating with creative director Jos de Krieger from Superuse Studios in the Netherlands and local Kiwi artist Julia Morison from Christchurch, this brief posed various challenges asking us to rethink how we design.

As part of the latest set of animal welfare regulations to be released, I created the full suite of animal welfare collateral from ideation through to design, development, illustration and implementation. I established a style that was simple and highlighted the use of colour to draw attention and stand out amongst the busy and often green designs of other farmer material. Other collateral included posters, signs, and videos.
