New channel packaging for NickJr and NickJr2 – endboards, cross-channel promo bed, straps, bugs, etc. The designs worked on the concept of a pop-up book and tied in with existing channel idents (that used paper-folding).

A new system for credit squeezes at the end of programmes, I helped develop a visual structure/approach for taking advantage of the new features the system offered. Sets of templates were designed to tie in with other events on the channel, and keep kids from turning over while the credits were rolling.

Canon’s IPOINT was a video installation in the reception areas of all their offices in Europe. A new video was produced twice a year to showcase the latest and greatest in the world of Canon – new advertising, product launches, sponsorship campaigns, environmental initiatives and so on.

As well as editing this selection of clips together, a series of bumpers was created to introduce each of the clips, taking Canon’s “red line” as a starting point and tying the video together into a coherent package. The video above shows an edit of various bumpers.

My final MA project. In short, I created a proposition for a new animation television channel aimed at a 15+ audience, and then developed the branding for it. The ‘Flux’ name stemmed from the idea of animation being phases of motion – a state of flux being in constant change. This one core idea formed the basis for all visual manifestations of the brand.

This short film was a one week collaborative project based on a short trip to Dungeness, an old fishing village on the south-east coast that is also home to a nuclear reactor. The film aimed to convey the jarring contrast between the stark beauty of the natural landcape and the impact of the reactor on the community there. The film was designed to be projected on two opposite walls, with separate soundtracks, but is shown here side-by-side with audio split into left and right channels.

A collaboration with Adriana Knott, Gary Chan and Sylvia Hassett.
