“As I was applying to a design company that believed in environmental sustainability as its key philosophy, I constructed a paper pop up out of paper left over from my other school projects!”

“At Christmas we always look to enlarge on the idea of a simple card. Christmas is a time for fun and we take the opportunity to explore the more eccentric side to our creativity. 2008 was no exception and we embarked on devising our own festive product – the now famous ico turkey apron.
For the chef who wants to make a standout sartorial statement, bright pink is hard to beat. Lovingly produced and hand packed by a dedicated team of seamstresses, ironers, folders and packers in the ico factory. This limited edition item of practical Christmas apparel puts novelty socks and sweaters to shame. The perfect compliment for a festive feast.
But the secret is in the packaging. The pink aprons were ingeniously folded origami-style to imitate a plump turkey breast and then vacuum sealed in plastic meat packets. At a glance the resulting item wouldn’t have looked out of place in a cold counter at your local supermarket. In fact, to prove their authentic appearance, we took a fresh batch down to Smithfield meat market one cold December morning to see our turkeys in context, annoying several busy butchers in the process.”

“We were to design work for a social or political cause; I chose tattoos for my topic. This Tattoo Tester is a kit that comes with certain papers so that the user can create custom temporary tattoos (transfer paper and carbon paper). The kit also includes a brochure with information on tattoo statistics and a brief history of tattooing. All parts of this kit are designed, written, and constructed by me. The box is made from light cardboard and all printed material is printed on recycled kraft paper.

“Our challenge was to redesign an existing campaign for an educational mentoring program called Start Something. The program is sponsored by Target Corporation and The Tiger Woods Foundation, which helps build core values and inspire leadership qualities in youth. The program is administered by teachers and adult leaders. The information and design needed to be cool and aspirational looking to appeal towards pre-teens and teens. The use of arrows and monochromatic imagery became the visual metaphor to the whole campaign.
The materials included ads, in-store kiosk posters, perforated postcard posters and a kit that included educational materials, stickers, award certificates, and wrist rubber bands with inspirational phrases. Participant numbers have skyrocketed from 25,000 to over 600,000 since the redesign.”
