Craft Spot's Annual Report for the 12-13 financial year. This year they chose to focus purely on the use of colours and patterns, emphasizing the use of a hand crafted aesthetic, with these patterns being screenprinted, to then further add to the tactility of the report to its top directors. It then picked out colours from each pattern to have as a section divider, allowing an ease for navigation throughout the report for all readers.

Life, Loss, Letterpress
A publication exploring the history of letterpress, and an essay discovering the effect letterpress had on a certain individuals life. The publication takes inspiration from the original letterpress printed books such as The Gutenberg Bible and Poliphilus. It features a monochrome, traditionally typeset first half, with a contrasting experimental and explorative second half of letterpress experimentations through the use of woodblocks and metal hand set type.
A body typeface designed to be uniform and harmonious, with minimal personality to allow for multiple purposes and uses.
The Devil's in the Detail
A four layer screen-print based around the idea of cross stitch and hand methods of production - two things I enjoy most. It plays on the idea of the quote 'The Devil's in the Detail' which is hidden in the centre of the print. It has an accompanying booklet showing the 'devil' that comes with the detail, documenting the misprints and process that comes through the method of screen-printing.
A redesign for the Murray Valley Gourmet, Salt Flakes, taking inspiration from early Italian monochrome design, focusing on the use of typography and scale, with minimal embellishments used throughout the design.
A bi-monthly digital publication, intended to be viewed on the iPad, that tackles the issues, ideas and themes around feminism and society.
A modular display typeface designed around a strict grid, with high contrast and slab serifs to complement.
A collaboration with Esperanto Magazine for their Melbourne Issue. There has always been a rivalry between the occupants of Melbourne and Sydney, and as a solid Melbournian, stereotypically beautiful embroidery has been created that juxtaposes with the crude content that has been embroided.
