Posters for the GUSRC Spring Election 2013.

Full brand development project, admittedly not my finest work as it was commissioned immediately following the completion of the GUSRC Annual Report, a 12 week project which exhausted me creatively.

I think they serve their purpose, and it was exciting to work with the organisation as it promotes the new position of VP Student Activities - the replacement for the role I served in as VP Comms.

Having previously done an Annual Report for Glasgow University SRC, I knew there were things that could be improved upon, given a second chance.

This year’s report is a lot subtler in its use of colour, less bloated with single-page articles and filler and general tighter in both design and copy edit.

My role in producing this was layout and design, statistical analysis and data analysing, copy editing, proofing and preflighting. 

Pretty pleased with how it turned out. Marked improvement on my previous effort, in my opinion.

Snapped a few photos of the LGBT flag being raised on the South Front of Glasgow University this afternoon to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). It’s a great gesture by such a prominent institution, and the flag will be visible for miles from Glasgow University’s vantage point on the hill.

Adaptation of the GUSRC logo I was asked to make by a student, though I’ve recently been challenged to make it in true ASCII. Might be a project for before the end of my term of office.

Glasgow University SRC Annual Report 2010-11

GUSRC oddly produces it’s annual reports in the second term of the following academic year, meaning I was putting together this document using information about my predecessors.

Timescale was tight (four weeks compared to ten for the 2009/10 edition) but it’s a pretty sweet layout and I was able to make some considered style choices despite time pressures.

Also, Mr Sansom’s artwork was resused here with his blessing after being dingied for the Strategic Plan. I think it works well.

This time last year I was frantically planning a campaign whilst carrying out my Presidential duties at the QM. This year I’m sitting back and watching it unfold…

That’s not true. Following the resignation of our President, I’m now the SRC election rep and am involved with it every step of the way.

I did have time, however, to knock this up (using the publicity of my design as a style guide). The first small-sheet of manifestos which has been produced for at least three years. Here’s hoping the voters find it useful.

Glasgow University Media Week 2012

Lineup of over twenty events I spent the first few weeks of January frantically organising, featuring some of Scotland’s media heavy-hitters. All design work by me, inspired and partial extension of 2011 branding by Luke Winter/Joe Crogan.

Over 700 attendees across the week, highest on record. Probably the biggest thing I’ve done/will do this year.

Glasgow University SRC Strategic Plan 2011-2015

My first major piece of design work for a couple of years. Came out pretty well, though the gloss laminate cover kills the colours of the photo.

Unfortunately, the cover design by Mr Samson, my collaborator on a few bits of artwork so far this year, didn’t make the final cut as I was overruled. It may yet see the light of day, we’ll see.

I was gifted this following my victory in the SRC elections by Mr Colum Fraser. It is now probably my favourite piece of clothing. It was a cousins of his who worked for the university in the 90s.The photo here is actually back to front - the Media Services logo is the front,  and this photo in no way does the fluorescence of the turquoise justice.
