FINAL MAJOR PROJECT / DUENDE JOURNAL




The news is everywhere, we have become consumed by the 24 hour cycle. Despite the pivotal role that it plays in our everyday lives, we rarely question the information presented to us.  Created in response to the current political climate and the rise of sensationalist media.  Duende Journal is a quarterly slow news publication that aims to harness the contentious, encouraging discussion and debate on some of the greatest challenges facing the world today.  The first issue explores the gender equality under the notion of “Propagender”.



TREND REPORT / GENERATION RISK; LIFE ON DEMAND.



A forecasted trend report for the travel and lifestyle sector, on behalf of London based design consultancy, Household.

Generation Risk: Life on Demand explores the rise of “digital nomads”, who are taking a more fluid approach to work fuelled by their desire for self-fulfilment. Sacrificing materialistic purchases,  in favour of taking their 9 to 5 grind on the go.
