The goal of the Five Things is to grow a global community of individuals encompassing all ages, locations and occupations; discovering, and documenting, the stories behind the things they choose as their five favourites. Hopefully, growing into an archive of interesting stories about humans and the things we love.

Kaffe O is a funky nordic inspired coffee bar on Belfast's Ormeau Road. The idea for this cool new coffee bar came from O's owner – Orla Smyth. After working in Copenhagen for several years, Orla released that Northern Ireland needed to sample nordic coffee culture and that a particular niche lay in the Belfast coffee scene. Orla employed me to work with her on all elements of design for this new nordic inspired coffee bar; from brand development right through to art direction and implementation.
Kaffe O is more than a coffee bar though, it's a brand, a lifestyle choice; and the brief from Orla was very much to create something that looked modern, fresh, nordic and to be different from what was already out there.

The Factory is a fresh modern grooming salon located opposite Belfast's City Hall; right in the heart of Belfast city centre. The salon's owner – Rowan Vernon – asked me to create a sleek, trendy and minimalist brand for this new outlet. Using modernist reference points I then created the identity, signage and all other branded print/digital material required for the launch of the new salon.
Motion Graphics. Animation.
This animation was created to promote a new night at popular Belfast bar Cuckoo. The night was to be called 'PONG!' as it would feature ping-pong and beer pong tournaments alongside a resident DJ playing urban and alternative anthems.
The brief asked that the animation be inspired by vintage computer games with an element of Manga style artwork and also a sense of humour to blend in with the bar's own brand and philosophy.
