Secret 7Secret 7

This brief was asking to choose a song from a selection of 7 and create a album sleeve representing the artist and the chosen song without mentioning their name. I chose Churches - clearest blue and watched their actual music video before creating my sleeve. Whilst listening to the song I noticed that the artists repeated the words "Every Open Eye" which is also their album name. For my cover I decided to use two circles which representing eyes and change each circular line inside it to different colour representing the different colour iris'.

Animal alphabetAnimal alphabet

This work was an expansion from an animal icon brief from Briefbox. I decided to create an animal for each of the 26 letters we have in the alphabet and created flashcards, an A3 poster and colouring book pack for children 18 months and older.
