Success isn't having all the money;
or having all the popularity.
Success is being happy with who you are; where you are.
Instead of thriving towards success,
I choose to build value.
By doing what I love, I believe happiness, and success will come.

Sticks and Bones is a fictional dog food delivery service. The branding was developed to portray the fun and loving nature of a dog; characteristics most dog owners can familiarize with. The menu folds from A2 high into a DL format brochure; ready for a mailout. On the back is a series of infographics providing factual information relating to dog health.
Along with the Sticks and Bones menu, a stationery set was developed. The branding, along with the menu, was developed to be playful. Keeping in mind that the stationery is a corporate asset, the playfulness had to be kept within professional constraints, therefore not being too over-the-top with it's playfulness and fun.
A final year typographic project. Although our class Annual Reports were developed in class as a project, they had another use and livelihood in the hands of the CRDT. We developed an Annual Report that was to be sent off to the CRDT in Cambodia to be used as a template for their 2012 Annual Report, free of charge. This was my treatment of the project.
'Unesco’s Award for Excellence in Handicrafts represents the balance
between tradition, innovation and sustainability. A helping hand is a long life tradition, starting early, during childhood where a child helps his brother weave cane into baskets. A brother helps his father build a hut to put a roof over their heads, a father cuts down trees to build furniture for their house, a grandmother makes ornaments for the market out of left over wood. This is the tradition Unesco is fighting to sustain, the
tradition of handicraft. A craftsperson’s hands is their greatest tool.'
- This logo was produced as part of a second year student project, in which we followed a 'real world' brief to develop a logo for an international competition for 'UNESCOs' Award for Excellence in Handicrafts'. I placed as a finalist in the competition. UNESCOs' program exists to support Southeast, Central, South and East Asia, Western Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean craftspeople to improve and innovate their product design so that it remains relevant and marketeable in our changing world.
An early typographic project. Our brief stated that we were to develop a two page spread and cover page for an existing article. I designed my cover page and spread keeping in mind the content of the article. The long typographic illustrations represent piles of tomes, built from letters within the tomes.
Our end of year exhibition called for a promotional website to be developed to showcose our best work, and to drive possible employers to our personal websites. I took a lead role in the design and development of this final showcase website, and our temporary website, which was used to build suspense and create hype within the industry.

Two Point Four is a fictional wine developed during a student wine label project. A circular bottle of wine, capped with a circular lid, poured into a circular wine glass, comes from a circular grape. Two point four pounds of grapes, to be precise. Noticing that everything surrounding wine is of a circular fashion, it was a natural step for me to design a circular label, with circle-based patterns.
Ride Into The Mirror is a blog website based on the Wordpress framework, which follows Geert Van Keulen on his current cycling trip through Asia, America and Europe. Geert plans to build a fan base via his new website, and hopes to gain attention from bike brand, Specialized, to sponsor his future trips. The blog follows his adventure, day by day, detailing the food he eats, the water he drinks and the distance he travels. I worked closely with Geert the week before his trip, to design and develop this website, ready to be launched the day he left.
