Colour Theory 

Using red, yellow and blue watercolour paint to create an array of colours. Investigating the relationship between composition, shape and colour through a grid system. I then RISO-graphed this painting and again used red, yellow and blue inks.

Penguin Book Cover

The Penguin Student Design award challenged me to redesign Dara McAnulty’s ‘Diary of a Young Naturalist’. The book details the life of a teenage conservationist and naturalist living in Northern Ireland. Dara’s connection to nature is unique and the way he writes is extremely evocative. Inspired by my colour theory work, I hope to have communicated this passion for nature through the cover, highlighting the vibrancy and tranquillity of the natural world.
