Introducing Silver and the rest of her royal family. Silver is a small moth like creature. Perhaps it had something to do with being confined to her dark tower on the far side of the castle but she had always been pale and skinny. She wore a small silver diadem on her mass of untidy brown hair but she never regarded herself as a typical princess.

This is the design for Sprung, my music magazine for upcoming music artists. Showing possible covers and spreads for interviews and promoting the artists material. Two versions of the cover for Sprung Magazine would be created one for in store and the other for subscribers. The Subscription version having an illustrated factor to tie in with the featured music artist on the cover. Another feature of the magazine would be the scan code for iPads or iPhones on interview spreads allowing the reader to sample that artists material.

This is a 3D Addictive world that would be sent through the post and the recipient would put together themselves. Raising awareness of hoarding and what impact it has on a persons day to day life. Causing everyday life to become impossible with the chaos created by themselves. Hoarding being a vicious cycle of collecting and never throwing away it was a suitable design as it portrays the sense of never ending.

This a a skylark that would be displayed with a factual book that would be illustrated. The Model itself is
made up of many layers of brown paper feathers. Since the skylark is well known for its song the wings had sheet music cast behind. The illustrated book was attached as a scroll coming from the beak as if it was the skylarks song.
