About the artist and work
Hello! I’m a multidisciplinary creative based in Birmingham. My creative practice consists of brand identity, interior design, styling, up-cycling, packaging design and illustration. I’m enthusiastic about making well-considered, timeless and meaningful design.
For my poster I wanted to explore my own perspective of Birmingham as a Creative City. I also wished to highlight the incredible and thriving creative community we have here in Brum. Through illustration I have featured buildings, items, collectives and all sorts of things which have been part of my creative journey here. The words reference old National Rail posters advertising Birmingham. The words are still just as relevant today and sum up, to me, how it feels to be part of the creative community in Birmingham. Yellow was the only colour I chose to use because Brum has always been a positive and hopeful place for me, full of energy, inspiration and warmth from the people, especially within the creative scene.
