Outside of the film world, one of my passions is graphic design. I'm naturally a very visual person, and I'm always interested in the way things look and the choices that go into presenting information. As everything does with me, this ties back into film, as I love the world of movie posters. The process of condensing a two-hour film into one A2 sheet of paper and figuring out how to sell your movie to an audience, convince them to part with their time is a really intriguing process.

If I'm ever on a project, you can be assured I'll have made some form of graphic art for it, be that posters, titles, promotional material, or thumbnails for YouTube and Vimeo.

During the COVID pandemic, I set up my own business, Qosters Posters, designing and selling alternative posters for some of my favourite films. The business has been steadily successful, with my designs being featured on a handful of fansites and subreddits.

Uncut Gems
Knives Out
Mad Max: Fury Road
Memories Of Murder
David Byrne's American Utopia

My design style, like my film work, tends to be influenced by that of the late '60s and early '70s, and I'm drawn to the simple but bold choices of that period, with lots of negative space, big display fonts and often one sole central image.

Further to this, I was also commissioned to design the logo, visual indetity and awards certificate for the inaugural Words By Women Awards in 2017. The event was set up to spotlight the contributions of female writers to UK journalism.
