I am interested in the discourse around identity and urbanism. Questioning the spread of brand thinking beyond the world of commerce and into the public realm. From nation branding down to high street branding I am interested in the role that graphic design plays in the framing of a place’s identity. I look for moments when graphic design and architecture overlap and create opportunities for graphic design to play a more supportive and less top-down role in defining a place’s identity.
