I’m currently working on a ‘PlaySafe, StaySafe’ campaign for Scotia Gas Networks, a Scottish gas company.
Their aim is to raise awareness of the dangers surrounding Gas and any sites which have been worked on and left unattended.
The age range for this project is 5-11 year old, and my initial idea is to produce a colour/sticker book.
The idea is that the company would send a team of Safety Experts into schools who will inform the children of the ‘PlaySafe, StaySafe’ campaign and the dangers surrounding Gas and any sites which have been worked on and left unattended! As a reminder the children will take away a ‘kit’ which could include stationery i.e pencils, pencil cases, rubbers etc with the ‘PlaySafe, StaySafe’ logo on, badges, an A4 poster which will feature one of the campaigns characters and my sticker/colouring book.
I will produce detailed and well developed scamps of the additional items to show the client how I imagine these items to look, however, my main focus will be on the sticker/colouring book.
As the age range is 5-11, the images will not be highly detailed. I will produce them in Adobe Illustrator and they will be purely made up of a bold outline and solid colour, including little elements to introduce shadow and light!
The image I have attached is a sneak preview of a current character. All characters are in the very early stages and still require a lot of development!!

I am a 21 year old Graphic Designer based in Leicester
I studied Graphic Design at Leicester College for 4 years. Currently studying Graphic Design & eMedia at Foundation Degree.
As well as Graphic Design, I have a huge interest in Web Design and Photography. I'm a self taught HTML coder with a basic knowledge of Adobe Dreamweaver. I have a rough understanding of CSS. I am nowhere near a professional Photographer and it is mainly a hobby at the moment, however, if I can integrate my photography with my Graphics & Web Design, I'd be very happy.
If you'd like to know anything else, feel free to ask. I hope you enjoy having a look around and if you (or anyone you know) are looking for a Graphic Designer, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
