Stereo Honey asked me to articulate the meanings and feelings of their music and influences into pieces of original artwork and design. These pieces would be used as the centre of the promotion of their respective recordings.
In ‘What Makes A Man’ (2018), the band explore ideas of frail and fading masculinity in the modern day. This is explored through the retelling of a poem about an aging boxer by Emma Payne.
In ‘The Bay’ (2017) the lyrics are based on the story of a group of Chinese Cockle Pickers who were swept out to sea late at night on Morecambe Bay. Amongst them were a married couple, around whom the song and artwork are based.

I was commissioned to explore new visual identities for Karin Park’s new ventures in 2017 and beyond. Karin was attempting to build her own label / recording studio / music venue, as well as continuing her music collaborations around the world. She wanted to bring all these efforts together under one visual direction so we began exploring her past influences in an attempt to translate her ideas in visual form.
The concept I provided was an historical exploration of how religious and cultural themes have been ‘Gothicised’ over time by slow perversion of their original designations.

Set in the near future, events mirror those of the Peasants Revolt of 1381 led by revolutionary Wat Tyler, when the people’s protest turned to violent revolt over taxes, austerity and unstable leadership. Experience what it’s like to be at the centre of a critical moment in this nation’s past, live the build-up through digital storytelling then let the lines between history and reality blur as you storm the Tower and decide the fate of the nation.
The People’s Revolt is an immersive, interactive experience from ground-breaking theatre company differencEngine in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces.

Promotional material for the release of the first EP under the name 'PRIZUM'. The music for the EP was based around the concept of musical 'curation' as opposed to 'creation'. In other words exploring the possibilties offered when the composer affirms they're more often than not reliving some prior musical experience through their work. This approach opened up a more free and eclectic path to formulating sound and visuals
The visuals were composited in Unreal Engine from a mix of lidar scans, meshes and memes.

In 2016 I was first approached to develop the brand and design language for Black Decagon and their venture Folk Horror Cinema Club; an ongoing series of cinema screenings that aimed to chronicle the work of various folklore inspired directions over the decades.
The night includes various guest speakers or panels who are affiliated with the respective films. So the challenge of the project was to marry the cinema heritage of horror over the decades with an intellectual layer into one design language.

Wayward is a London-based landscape, art and architecture practice – an award-winning collective of designers, artists and urban growers.
I worked very closely with Wayward for many months (even contributing to some of their ongoing architectural projects) in order to properly understand their mission and ethos. The closeness to the company helped my channel many of their fun and playful aspects that were sorely lacking from their prior public promotions.
To commemorate the opening of a new salon in New York Kennaland commissioned several artists, stylists and photographers to produce a book under a single concept. Katabasis was the result. The design work follows the concept of a downward journey into a dreamlike world that the stylists at Kennaland helped envisage.
