Over the past year I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in a number of external projects within the design industry.
Billabong Creative Project
I was lucky enough to be given the opporitunity to participate in a workshop with Threaded and Billabong where we were tasked to put together a proposal for a new billbong t-shirt based around New Zealand youth culture.
This design was one of three that have now gone into production and are on sale in stores throughout New Zealand. Check out the promo video here.
100 Days Project: Daily Thoughts
The premise is simple: For 100 days you must repeat a design operation of your choosing. The ‘operation’ must be repeated in some form everyday, and every iteration must be documented for eventual presentation. The medium is open.
This project is based on Michael Bierut’s ‘100 Days of Design’ project on the Design Observer Blog. Emma Rogan is running this project and for more information or to follow other people check it out here.
My contribution to this project was 100 daily thoughts. For 100 days I created one typographic design based around a thought for that day.
On day 100 we all came together for an awesome exhibition celebrating the project and it gave everyone a chance to check out what each other had been upto. You can view the entire project here.
‘I Made You A Mixtape’ Exhibition
I was lucky enough to be asked to take part in an exhibition at the beginning of the year. It featured a number of established New Zealand designers and illustrators.
A series of orginial monoprints that have been designed around the idea of ‘nostalgic childhood memories’.
These illustrations featured in an exhibition at Corban Estate Arts Centre in early 2012 of which a number of them were sold successfully.
