Infographic

I was approached to design an infographic, pointing out 5 ways to protect against insider threats, for the Open University.

I thoroughly enjoyed researching different styles of infographics and design layouts for this brief. A huge percentage of my time was spent researching and coming up with ideas, to illustrate each section on security.

I was given specific guidelines, such as, what fonts, colours,dimensions and the ‘overall look’ to work to. I just loved producing the illustrations, then putting all the elements together!

The illustrations were created in Illustrator, then the pieces were placed together in InDesign. I like using InDesign, as I find it comfortable to work with.

See below the final infographic and each seperate illustration.

Art inspired Fashion

The fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2014 are very exciting!!

The abstract prints are quite a modern and freshly emerging drive in the world of fashion trends. They involve a huge diversity of themes from florals to abstract art. Not one to shy away from colour, I love the brush stroke patterns,block shapes and colour combinations. I recently bought a blue, peplum top from Zara, where they have many art inspired dresses, trousers and tee-shirts on display. A few designer and high street examples of abstract print apparel are below –

Here are a few samples of abstract art which I love and are a possible reason why the above fashion appeals to me. They display carefree lines and unintentional shapes, plus they are all just fabulous! They are just a few that I have collated on Pinterest –
