Folding posters were designed to advertise the Leeds College of Art Open days. The design of these items needed to carry the visual language of the college prospectus to create a set that can be mailed out to potential applicants.

[column width="48%" padding="3%"] Patrick Oliver – Appreciations
Appreciations is a book compiling tributes and memories of the artist Patrick Oliver by his friends, family, colleagues and former students. The book also contains Olivers notebooks, which give an insight into his thought processes and teaching plans.
[/column] [column width="48%" padding="0%"]The front and back cover were printed in Monestial Green, a trademark colour of the artist, with a black spine with matt white block foil to list the contributors. The notebooks were printed on pistachio green paper to mark them as a sepatate section of the book.

Archipelago was the name of the 2010 BA (Hons) Fine Art degree show at Leeds College of Art. The concept comes from the idea of each of the artists being separate in their practice whilst also being connected under the umbrella of the course. The exhibition ran at first at the College’s end of year show and then travelled to London for Free Range 2010.
[/column] [column width="48%" padding="0%"]Imagery of the artists work was printed in black to represent each artist as an island while everything else was printed in a rich blue to represent the ocean connecting them. The name ‘Together we are bound by the sea’ perfectly communicated the dark romanticism associated with the ocean and the concept of the show.
Designed in collaboration with and cover photography by Angus Macpherson.
[column width="48%" padding="3%"]Impossible Prints
A set of three hand pulled screen prints. Having been interested in the nature of impossible shapes for quite some time. We decided to see how far the idea could be pushed in terms of a repetative pattern. Printed in metallic gold ink.
[/column] [column width="48%" padding="0%"]Since being printed, the impossible prints have been exhibited at Testspace Leeds as well as being sold on Counter-Objects.
Another day, another new studio on SI ;)
