Constructed Peace Editorial 2022

Size / Binding 150x220mm / 154pg / Sewn Softcover Otabind
Printing Jubels Amsterdam / Metallic Silver Spot Colour + ColorLibrary Profile
The resulting thesis of one year of research in to how the design of defensive infrastructure in Northern Ireland, particularly the Belfast Peace Line, reflect the intentions and current situation of the Peace Process in Northern Ireland. The walls were built as a temporary solution that today still define a divided co-existence. [Part of DAE Graduation Project]

New Gold Standard Editorial 2021

Size / Binding 210x275mm / 110pg / Softcover with Aluminium Spine
Printing Silkscreened Metallic Gold Ink
Outcome of research exploring methods to view and analyse how the the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are manipulated. The entire book takes the form of a graph, bringing to light the nonsense and greed that dictates its value, whilst allowing these layers of information to become more tangible to the reader. The book used a custom inDesign script to display the graph on each page.

Field Guide to Constructed Peace Editorial 2022

Size / Binding 100x185mm / 110pg / Softcover with Vinyl Cover
As segregation of spaces through the walls of the so-called Peace Line continues, it becomes ever more difficult for these walls to be removed. Materially too, the walls have slowly transitioned from temporary metal sheets to permanent steel, concrete and brick that blend into the urban fabric, disguising their main purpose. Through the format of a Field Guide, this project reemphasises the abnormality of these structures and questions their legitimacy as a permanent solution. [Part of DAE Graduation Project]

Seen Unseen Editorial 2021

A photo book juxtaposing the visible aspects of division with the unseen, yet pervasive societal rifts in Northern Ireland. [Early Part of DAE Graduation Project]
