Against the Current is a personal statement expressing my disappointment in the deterioration of the Selwyn river. Through using communication design tools, design can facilitate a spirited conversation and construct a form of subtle activism to provoke, challenge and convey the degradation of the Selwyn River. My concertina publication is a tactile and expressive piece of work which allows the reader to take away from it what they wish.
As a Visual Communication Designer, I’ve developed a passion for user experience design, editorial design and everything typographic. I get excited about kerning, en dashes, widows and grids, and enjoy creating work which is both conceptually and aesthetically beautiful.
