City Meadows is an inclusive and modern community garden designed specifically for the people of Leicester. The City Local Plan Report states that the city encourages the “use of vacant or derelict land and the use of incidental open space in housing areas”. City Meadows aims to use these spaces as gardens where city dwellers and bio-diversity complete one another. To accommodate such a project, the locations chosen are decorated with colourful murals which reflect the city's vibrant and diverse dynamic. This is one of two locations selected for the gardens.

City Meadows gardens are adapted for all ages. The project visual language is used throughout.
I'm an all round creative with an interest in typography and print making.
If this were the shortest job interview, I would sum myself up as: adaptable, multidisciplinary, and ambitious. However, this is not the shortest job interview, so here is more about me.
My approach to design is very much based on delivering outcomes with a purpose. I am particularly interested in sustainability and UX. I believe in playful yet informative design.

City Meadows : A New Approach to Urban Bio-Diversity in Leicester.
Back in 2019, I moved to Shanghai to become Paper Stone Scissors' graphic design intern. This experience made me the designer that I am today: adaptable and open-minded. Being surrounded by highly skilled creatives, I learned to be concise in my design practice and to deliver highly professional outcomes. As the studio worked mainly with hospitality brands, I have had the opportunity to work with influential corporations such as Hilton Hotels and Resorts.
From January 2020 until July 2020, I worked in Paris at a small creative studio called Belastro. Here again, I was hired as a graphic design intern, however, unlike my previous experience in Shanghai, the position with Belastro required a lot of hands-on work. For 6 months I worked in the start-up's screenprint studio, designing and printing album covers and festival identities.
