I was very proud to work on this feature length documentary about the decades long scandal of contaminated blood products for filmmaker Marcus Plowright, commissioned by ITV. It was an expansive project, lasting many months from winter 2019 to September 2020 when it aired on ITV. I worked very closely with Marcus during the creation of the film to try and bring to life the events of the investigation, featuring many unearthed documents that charted the cover ups and events, over the decades it all took place.
Nice little project to work on from lockdown… I created an audio bed, timed out the structure and animated all the elements to create a 2 minute sizzle reel highlighting the upcoming collections for 2021 for Ralph Lauren. Sadly it’s all so secret I can’t show you anything! So you’ll have to make do with these frames from the intro and have to take my word for it about the rest, sorry.
I worked on this project during the first lockdown back in June. With the worlds of film, live events, music, art and TV all effectively shut down, I got in contact with Not Fur’ Long Creative, who were trying to make the best of a bad situation by connecting currently out-of-work creatives like myself, with in-need non-profit organisations like MEDIA CUBS. I created a series of deliverables for this Manchester based after-schools youth media initiative, including an animated ‘manifesto video’, social media spots, as well as a digital billboard and other print elements.
I like to create seasonal compilations when I get the chance, and it felt more important than ever to mark the occasion this year. To celebrate the season of rebirth and renewal, as well as creating this double mixtape, I also made a couple of little animated videos to help promote the project (plus designing the artwork).
Working closely with the UAL Design Department I created a suite of on-screen motion assets for them to use across all video and social media. Sticking as closely as possible to their simple yet bold brand guidelines to create a clean and versatile kit of parts.
Created the visual identity for a new health and fitness brand focusing on digital detox, outdoors exercise and healthy plant-based eating. First up was designing a logo, then an overall visual style and aesthetic, then I then moved on to creating some online animated videos for them to use on their social media channels.
In collaboration with Satore Studio & Chameleon Visual, I created the visuals for the launch event of a new BOSS range in Germany September 2019. Using specially shot footage of models in BOSS clothing, we created a bold, colourful tapestry of interacting cut outs across the 4 huge walls of the show space as well as the tunnel leading to it.
I was hired to refresh the branding and design assets for fitness brand CAR.O.L across their whole range of assets including print, web and motion (I couldn’t change the main logo/font or colour palette, only work from what they had already). The project ended up not reaching completion due to unforeseen issues, but I created and art directed a whole range of assets across social media, video, photography + more, some highlights of these are shown below.
I created these trailers to promote the new exhibition BEYOND THE ROAD at Saatchi Gallery. A collaboration between Colin Nightingale & Stephen Dobbie (Punchdrunk) and James Lavelle (UNKLE), the exhibition is a deep & mysterious experience in deconstructing music and imagery to create a unique and enlightening atmosphere. With no footage or artwork to be used, we instead focused on the imagery of the arch (the emblem of the show) and the idea of passing from one world to another. I was lucky enough to be able to create a bespoke audio bed for the trailer, intending to allude to the unique atmosphere of the installation using the many separate music stems of UNKLE’s track ‘Ar.Mour’ to create a de-constructed but eventually cohesive sense of progression.
