Through a study of one of Zaha Hadid’s designs, I wanted to display the creative process in architecture, and draw her portrait through one of her projects . I found inspiration in her designs' balance between organic lines and complex structures, reminding me of natural patterns, being both mathematically precise and deceivingly simple.
This font was created by adapting the natural curves and weights of calligraphy to a more systematic, modulable system of simple shapes.
This series is an exploration of colour and shape within the possibilities of a fictional 3D object, one that offers both creative constraints and freedom.
MA VILLE ME RESSEMBLE
This poster is a commission from the city of Fleury-Merogis, on the theme of women in public spaces. As a city known for it's prison, the women of this city often often navigate it alone, building invisible boundaries for their own security. This was inspired by their need for their spaces to reflect their needs.
This project was a study on form in visual communication. I wanted to produce as much of it as possible, so I designed a display font and dyed the paper myself, creating an eye catching, intriguing publication. the content is an excerpt from a guide to manipulation, so I wanted to emulate a smoke-and-mirrors, fully fabricated aspect.
I continued using the vessel as a frame within which to experiment with colour and texture and materiality.
I selected elements from my urban environment and catalogued them as simplified three-dimensional shapes, to be used as building blocks for new creations. I used these elements to make constructions, balancing them on top of each other, building them up into unexpected formations, their sharp or curvy segments lending them individual traits and personalities.
