This design is based on the phrase 'Life is a bumpy road' and was created in Illustrator. The type was created on a wavy path and warped to represent the road. The trees were created with the brush tool. Life may have its ups and downs but we always seem to reach our destination!

A new 3D paper cut design that represents a puppet on strings using the word 'puppet' to represent the figure. The letters are hand cut from paper and fixed using foam spacers to provide depth. The strings are made from embroidery thread, and once assembled the design is simply photographed.

A new 3D paper cut design based on the theme of chaos. All elements are hand cut from card and layered with foam spacers to create a three dimensional effect. Photographing the final result is tricky to get all the shadows to form in the correct place, so you have to move the light source around until it looks OK. Paper cut designs are often more enjoyable to create than using digital methods and you get that hand made feel that is hard to achieve with a computer.

This cover design was created in Illustrator using a minimal colour palette of black tints and red. All the textures were vectorised from scanned images (stone and leaves) and I used the transparency features to create depth and tone. The fonts are from the Meta Plus family.
