Waiting for the
kettle to boil ︎︎︎

        ‘Waiting for the kettle to boil’ is a tactile, poetic publication that explores slowness in a fast world. Through personal experience, the book explores the good, the challenging, and the vulnerable nature of slowing down when the world is urging you to speed up.
    A homage to 2020, this publication comments on the obligation to live quickly, and how finding balance in the pace of life can nourish relationships, perspective and connectedness. Through typographic pacing, tactility, and interactive moments, the book encourages the reader to take their time, allowing a slow read and a quiet moment.

CubaDupa Rebrand︎︎︎

         Rebrand of Wellington’s street festival, CubaDupa. The brand essence for this new identity was to “Cuba-fy the everyday”. Using the quirky nature of Cuba Street and it’s culture, to Cuba-fy something is to make it weirder, wackier, groovier, and spicier.

Slow Design Principles︎︎︎

         I used the principles of Slow Design to guide my honours project in 2020. Slow Design has been described as “design that’s timeless, made to last, and done thoughtfully,with intent and care for the planet.” (Spencer Bailey) The Slow Design kaupapa encourages slower processes and methods that are more reflective, collaborative, and considered.
