V&A Dundee: A Few Minutes of Design

This installation, developed by V&A Dundee in partnership with Creative Education Trust, encouraged visitors to take some paper, a pencil and a few minutes to explore the world of design, inspired by the museum’s Scottish Design Galleries.

I provided the installation’s design, creating a 15 meter long illustration to house a series of activities that invited visitors to engage with a range of simple provocations rooted in design principles. Illustrations were also applied to five worktables for participants to use. Over the duration of a week, when the museum was both open and closed, I created the wall artwork in situ.

Zizzi: Restaurant Mural

The past lives of Glasgow’s Royal Exchange inspired this restaurant mural. The building had previously been both a bank and the city’s first telephone exchange; I combined these two functions with fun, relatable visuals, which I then painted over seven days prior to the restaurant's opening night.
