To celebare the 10th year of The Rose Theatre in Kingston, they wanted to honour their history, famous productions, and community involvement.
Led by the aesthetics of stage lighting, and the circular design of the stage (based on Shakespears first theatre), we designed an orbiting lighting system that would highlight the unique and individual details of each prop, costume or object, while conveying a sense of passing time.

How Do You Sound?
The addition of a new word to the Oxford English Dictionary requires it “to reach a level where it is unselfconsciously used with the expectation of being understood”.
This is often a lengthy and organic process and takes considerable momentum, but can you market a word?
How do you feel? How do you do? How do you look?
How do you sound is an attempt to translate the structure, lines, creases, bumps and freckles of the human face into sheet music.
Based on the visual representation of sound known as a spectrograph, one is able to accurately and objectively translate facial features into hmm's, ooh's and aah's, and a cohesive piece of choir music. An ongoing collaborative project with composer Jaka Skapin and Charlotte Allen. Watch here
"Investing In Future Genartions" - Quote from Southbank Centre, talking about their recent renovation project which threatens to close Southbank Skate Park.
I created these typographic skates stoppers to subvert and highlight the hypocrisy in the South Bank Centre's pro-cultural rhetoric, and their simultaneous attempted closing of the South Bank skate park, an iconic and historical cultural landmark.
Is sitting on your own arse better than sitting on someone else’s? Why do humans tessellate so well? Is our own anatomy the key to perfect ergonomics?
How can I waste enormous amounts of resources and time on the simple pun of an arm chair made from legs?
This project answers these questions, and asks so many more.
Paintings & sculptures are experienced in space, you can move around them, observing them all at once, appreciating their individual constituent parts. A song is experience over time, from beginning to end, yet one cannot exist without the other. – “It would be a mistake to assume that music is without spatial connotations or that visual design, especially ornament, can flourish without incorporating the affective drive of rhythm.”
A grid of 35 independently poweredspeakers producing 35 different tones, allow’s someone to experience a sound spatially, all at once. Translating the painting ‘Mona Lisa’ into a sound. Watch here.
Croydon was designed to be one of the busiest business centres in London, with the town centre being focussed around offices not public space. Now the centre of Croydon is rife with empty buildings, minimal public space and the largest youth population in London.
This project re-imagines office furniture as public and play park equipment, highlighting the problems faced by Croydon today.

To celebrate the launch of the UK paperback edition of Rutger Bregman’s book Utopia For Realists, Charlie Jeffries and I created a window display in Foyles Flagship store.
A giant clock face shows notable and once Utopian social advances, each whose time came, with the clock just before the hour of Universal Basic Income, and the 15 hour work week and no borders shortly following.
The pitch won by a unanimous decision, and was installed in March of 2018.
A perforated publication reflecting the impermanence of the posters found in Berlin.
We interviewed five Berliners for this publication, each had increasing concerns for the gentrification of Berlin.
As with the layered posters in Berlin, you rip your way back through time to memories of a freer, younger Berlin.
To me, designing is to be curious, to make and think, to challenge perceptions and twist preconceived notions on their head. To tell stories. To approach every project, idea, brief and obstacle with an open mind. To not stay in one discipline.
