Concept and Brief
I designed the cover for the fiction “The Ghost at Brooklands Museum” which is a novel primarily aimed at an audience of children between the ages of 9-12 and young families.
The novel (written by Mark Richardson) is based on Brooklands' motoring and aviation history. The museum has also had many ghostly sightings which have been reported over several years and in part inspired the novel.
For the novel’s cover design Mark wanted to reflect a scene in the book where the main character (Jake) dramatically spots the Brooklands ghost (Sir William) for the first time. The novel is about how Jake and Sir William become friends and embark on a important mission to preserve a vital part of Brooklands history.
The book is available as an e-book on Amazon, and as a physical copy in the Brooklands Museum shop. In December 2016 the book reached Amazon’s Top 10 Bestseller list in the category “Children’s Time Travel ebooks.” The book cover has also featured in the Classic Car Weekly magazine. During the launch the book cover design was printed onto T shirts that the author used to promote the book.
The design is a competition entry for a Talenthouse competition to design visuals promoting Fantastic Beast’s latest film “Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald.” The poster design was inspired by the colorful wands and magic that feature in the trailer of the film and also the film’s footage of the main actors.

KOAS (Kingston Altitude Orbit Satellite) is an new organisation that work in collaboration with Aerospace firm Airbus, on satellite projects in the UK. KOAS commissioned me to design their branding and Mission Patch for the satellite project they where working on. I designed a mission patch and logo that reflected the idea of the satellite orbiting the earth to calculate the earth’s altitude. I also thought it would be interesting to bring the mission patch and logo to life, by creating animated gifs of both designs.

This is a re- brand project for Third iris Films. The idea was to keep the concept of the camera viewfinder brackets from the original design (which also features on this website). However, I wanted to give the brand a more contemporary feel, for example through the colour and typography. The brand also features 3 dots, which represents the 3 elements to the Third Iris Films name.
I also wanted to incorporate motion into the design through Gifs and motion graphics. I incorporated the branding into Third iris Films imagery (see images at the bottom of this page). There are two versions of the logo, one that is more simple with two camera brackets and another with four camera brackets.
When conducting work experience at Sky Creative, I did visual mock ups in photoshop of an interactive Gold Dust installation for Sky's Back Stage bar in the 02 Arena.

Jim Al-Khalili ( BBC broadcaster) commissioned me to re-design his website using Squarespace. He wanted the website to have a more contemporary feel and clearer page structure, compared to the website he had previously.
Received positive feedback from Jim Al-Khalili on Twitter for the design of the website.
Boom is a platform that is intended to inspire, promote and inform young, upcoming designers about new media disciplines such as motion graphics and digital interaction. The concept of having a TV channel to help promote upcoming artists work in this field, resulted in me producing a series of contemporary idents that would reflect the contemporary feel of Boom.
The indents feature abstract shapes and typography exploding and growing. These act as a visual metaphor for the brands name 'Boom' and catchphrase “unleash your creativity.”

LA Rosa Racing (a Go-Karting team) commissioned me to design their logo, which they could include on their social media pages, Go Kart and other racing merchandise. The logo featuring the wreath is the logo for the team. While the Freddie logo is a personal logo for the driver - Freddie LA Rosa who races for the team. The red and yellow colours resemble the Sicily flag (an Island in Italy) which reflects the team's family heritage. The blue and white colours used are inspired by the teams racing livery.
This is an identity I created for a start up film production company, Third Iris Films. The concept of using camera viewfinder brackets stemmed from the client's research that when people hear the name 'Third Iris Films' they think of the camera's iris acting as a person's third eye.
Third Iris Films wanted the branding and identity to be simple in order for it to be clearly seen at the start of their online films, on their website and other promotional material such as business cards. They also wanted the branding to be used in both black on white and white on black.
