Caledonian MacBrayne Annual Report

We were asked to design an Annual Report for several different companys. I choose to to re-design the annual report for Caledonain MacBrayne. The corporate message of this annual report was to show that the company is proffesional, the reason I choose the colours for my spread was to give it a softer feel and also the lines througout the spread were to create a wave which I feel was appropriate for this subject.


Rocking Through the Years, this is a project where I researched the Top 60 Rock Bands and different genres of rock. I had much fun with this project. <3

a new purchase! :)

Today i took a wee visit to Waterstone book shop, on the intention o n buying books for this new project (Annual Report) but instead i choose to buy this book by Gestolten - book of logos, basically i think it was more of an impulse buy to be honest, i loved the cover, and as Rhinannon did go on to us while doing the book jackets about how u can just buy a book for its cover, well this happened to me today! :)

Grow Your Own range

The aim of this brief was to attract a new target audience to gardening rather than your average garden novilsts, I choose to attract a young business couple who wouldn't be very interested in gardening, though do have a passion for cooking, hense the reason for the style of this packaging, it was more to attract them to the design rather than the gardening side at first.

Below are my final designs <3

Point Of Sale Poster and Cards

Grow Your Own

well i did say i was going to try and update this more often, as i feel this is starting to look a bit boring,


Dear blogger, y wont u let me upload my work? :(
this has made me quite upset.

We have finally finished the 'Grow Your Own' it was a rather long brief, I had some ups and downs with it and found out quite alot about fruit and vegetables and how they are actually grown, and let me tell u its not all about flinging some seeds into the ground, some interesting facts and some very boring!

So after this long dreaary period of learning about fruit and vegetables i actually feel in this project I achieved alot, I feel very happy with it, due to the fact as well I was asked to enter the D&AD Awards, which is a 1st for me, so i am rather excited about this! I am just wishing at the moment i could post my work,

Please blogger work soon! :)

Book Jackets.... aaah lovely! :)

okaaaaay so here you go these are my finished book jackets, we were asked to complete 1 fiction or non-fiction book, i choose Sheena Mackay 'The Atmospheric Railway' which i thought turned out not to bad, i was also asked to design a book series of our own choice, i choose to do Feminism and Emotion below are my finished book jackets.
I came up with trying to give my covers a elegant look and feel to it with a soft touch to it aswell, I feel this has worked well with Feminism and Emotion.
below are my finished series which i am quite happy with to be honest :)
