Communication Design / Illustration

I create images and text exploring emotions, ideas and culture.

My work is characterised by a deep interest in human connection. I believe that in the present age, designers have the responsbility of bringing honesty and warmth to everyday, ordinary interactions. Right now, more than ever, design can be a conscious act of love.

Through a series of experimental illustration, I aimed to introduce the public to the positive side of this topic, as well as explore the journey a person can take to accept vulnerability, improve emotional health and move towards growth. 

The objective was to provide a viewing experience that will influence the audience to re-think their approaches with self / other relationships.
