Interactive educational piece explaining the ‘Super Modernist Method’, which was created to optimise written English to be more efficient by removing any unnecessary components.
The folds instruct the usage of the method and can be read in three directions to reveal different information as it becomes appropriate.

A proposal to reduce London's commuter belt anxieties via an inadvertent exchange between commuters. When the newspaper is left behind and passes through the hands of other commuters, it accumulates content which can be read and added to, acting as an outlet for current issues.
The newspaper is filled with simple prompts that the commuter can fill in. As shown, it can be folded in four sections for easy use during crowded peak-hour journeys. By creating this outlet for thought, it aims to motivate and take the commuter's attention away from their long and often delayed journeys, which have been proved to be the cause of higher anxiety levels in Greater London.

This project was based on suburban gossip, under a brief that explored spatial typography. I designed a modular typeface using blocks in order to reflect the way suburban settings are landscaped to a grid. By adding a connection line on each letter allows all letters to join, following the idea that gossip is connected in the suburban environment.
I constructed a board game based on the design principles I used for my typeface. In the game, players are prompted by three different types of playing card to create, deviate and change the context of the initiating gossip.
This piece was shown in a collaborative exhibition at The Rag Factory in Brick Lane, titled 'Action. Time. Vision.'

33 Seconds of a London street scene mapped with typography, using picas and points as a means of measuring time and location. A simple key is given to provide non-personal information for the user to make their own conclusions and narratives.
It is letterpress printed using 10pt and 8pt Univers, bold and regular, printed on 50gsm bible paper in order to recreate a sense of the distorted vision of looking from a long distance by the show-through of the text.
