The brochure I created for Animal Fly. I was asked to create the brochure in both English & Japanese.
I created a flyer & also a website for a company called “Wakalture” in Tokyo, Japan. The company offers calligraphy and other classes in Tokyo to Japanese & tourists visiting Japan.
I wanted to show something Japanese, but also fun. I included a Daruma & a Crane Origami into the design. Once the design was selected, I then applied the design to the website.
I was approached by Univa Capital to come up with a New Year’s Card design to represent “The Year of the Monkey”. Univa Capital is a holding company with corporate companies around the world, so I had to make sure the design would be understandable to all of the clients that the card would be sent out to.
Using the Japanese & English copy provided, I create the illustration of the monkeys with the logo element incorporated in the design.
Currently I work at Lisuto in Japan as the Lead Designer, working on UI/UX design for this new application in Tokyo. It’s really interesting coming up with the design style, and then applying the style to creating responsive designs, & the iOS app.
The application will be provided in many languages, so I have to think about how the design will work in many languages, when designing for the application.
On the 21st of June 2012 I had my end of year show at the Batley School of Art.
I was surprised how it turned out with some work from my last project. The exhibition for my final year showed examples of my first year too.

The poster was put together using photographs I had taken of origami cranes, to make the shape an origami crane.
