My first step was a trip to the museum  of brands packaging and advertising


From the visit i decided i wanted to do a kind of old style looking cereal but with a modern touch. I thought that era was humerous, where they could get away wit false advertising where you could say thing like, eat this is will make you better etc

cereal back


So this is the front of my box, i’ve decided to go for a square shaped box becase after looking through the cereal isle in tesco i didn’t see any that shape. I think this will help it to get noticed and also can be advertised as storage smart. My cereal is going to be a healthy cereal it seems thats where the market is going, but its not going to take its self to seriousy. I aim for my advert to be a little tounge in cheek





The Brief was to create a series of 6 postcards that were totally original and wouldn’t be the kind of postcards you would see for sale

My first thought was to glamorize popular U.K holidays resorts into a cliche Americanized postcard and name

bathelona bbas vegas

my next thought was kind of bad taste post cards/ people that shouldn’t send post cards


I thought the bad taste post cards were a little obvious and not actually that funny, so i thought of the general theme of post cards being places you’ve been, and the familiar phrase “places my feet have been” came to mind which inspired the following images while working on annother idea


this idea kind of came as a fluke, my intent was to put the foreground into the background, so the view you would want to see was put into the background, this came while learning about psych geography, the intent to get a pedestrian to  divert his regular route to learn something new about his surrounding, well to that affect. What i realized was that i could use windows to frame my image using the similar collage style seen in post cards. This will follow after these images.


On a totally opposite angle i had considered putting famous suicide notes on the front of the postcard, a kind of morbid idea but goes against the point of postcards, which are usually light, it did tempt me to pursue but visually it is quiet plain and may be slightly confusing


the series of foreground into the background didn’t work so well, kind of boring from the photos but i did kind of like the idea of framing the images and after being encouraged to go with those i did here are the final images



I liked how they came out, but wished I had gone with the glamorized cities, I feel I would have been more enthusiastic about my work when presenting it


Surrealist Typographical film


This is my first ever attempt at film let alone a  surrealist typographic film!

It took me 4 attempts to get the final piece of film and i wanted it over as soon as possible because we were setting fires in a forest without any permission, so i wanted it shot as quickly as possible.
Took some inspiration from David Lynchs “lost highway” and his quirky cigarette add that had nothing to do with the advert
Really happy with the final outcome

This is A fire




A brief based around the idea of excuses for not doing our projects. The excuses were to be presented typographically




Alone With Everyone


This day brief was purely photographic and was aimed to present the concept of being ‘Alone with everyone’

These are my attempts

This is my final image.


I chose this one because I see this scenario a lot, especially on the train, people being surrounded by others but still trying to keep a good amount of personal space. Their aim is to be alone, but in public spaces its almost impossible, so to me this fulfills the idea of ‘Alone with everyone’


High School Musical



That’s all the brief says other than ‘No fear’ so considering I deeply dislike it and feel it is cruel to make children watch it,  its just not realistic to encourage children to think being they way they live in those films is ok, myself and 2 others are going to make an ‘NSPCC’ style advert protesting against the use of high school musical. It will be very tongue and cheek but well polished to look like an ‘NSPCC’ advert.


Show Me Something New


Photograph ten everyday objects in a way that shows them in a completely new light. WE SHOULD not be able to tell what we are looking at. Make them visually extraordinary
