CABINET OF CURIOSITIES
I enjoy making hand-crafted objects alongside my graphic design business. Mixed media is my favourite medium, as it allows me to put to use the creative and hand craft skills I have gained throughout the years.
Cabinet of Curiosities is one of my personal projects. Its name encapsulates my interest in science, arts, crafts and eclectic ephemera.
Taking advantage of my professional skills as a digital and graphic designer, I designed the brand and developed this website to promote one of my personal art and crafts projects. Inspired by old victorian microscopic slides I created a series of decorative objects which form a collection of mixed media miniatures put together in unusual configurations.
I participated in an art exhibition at Rich Mix (Shoreditch, London) organised by Zealous.
I was also part of an art exhibition run by Arthub in Deptford, and exhibited at the Telegraph Hill Festival Open Studios in South East London.
Alongside the website (displayed on a touch screen), I created a series of promotional posters, labels, postcards and greeting cards inviting people to find out more about my artworks.
My skills as a digital and graphic designer were showcased alongside my skills as an artist and designer-maker, with very positive feedback.
