Alice In Wonderland

The Tim Burton directed Alice In Wonderland is shaping up to be a great movie next year. I love the way he has created a completely new world for the film to be set in, which he manages to do in all the movies he’s worked on. I particularly like the soldiers outfits in the trailer, and I can’t wait to see this film!

Real Life Street Fighter Poses

via My Modern Met

I love the idea of this, creating great poses from the ‘Street Fighter’ video games using well timed photography and various lighting techniques. Design doesn’t always have to be functional. Sometimes it just has to make you smile.

Home Sweet Slough

I created this piece in February of 2008 whilst creating my portfolio for my university interviews. I wanted to include something that represented where I was from. Slough is often mocked and made fun of, so I decided to take some of the aspects of Slough and just explain that no matter what people may say about it, it will always be home to me. Home Sweet Slough.

The Audacity of Hope

For my typography project based on book covers, I chose to redesign the cover for The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama. Released in 2006, it builds upon his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention, and sets the basis for what would be his winning Presidential campaign. Having to use only type was a concept I was unfamiliar with but I am quite happy with the final outcome.
