Hornchurch visual identity
Place branding for Hornchurch in Essex. The town wanted to re-brand their town centre to promote local businesses and civic pride. Based on surveys and focus groups, the idea was to capture the town’s history and friendly village-like feel. I produced brand guidelines and designed posters, hoardings, flyers, loyalty cards, merchandise, social media ads and other assets to launch the brand.

Crawley Council place branding
A rebrand for Crawley that worked with the idea of expressing the excitement of the New Towns in the 1960s. It celebrates the mid-century modern aesthetic, but updates it with a quirky, colourful, modular approach. I produced brand guidelines and designed posters, hoardings, publications, way signs, a set of icons and other assets to launch the brand.
