Recently, I joined up with Pride Radio North East (PRNE). The team is made up of a great bunch who volunteer a lot of their time to make the station the success it is. However, they were in need of a Graphic Designer… so I’ve stepped in to help out with various promotional/designery things!

Already in the short time I’ve been helping out, it’s been both inspiring and a lot of fun. There is plenty more work in the pipeline for PRNE - so keep your eyes peeled!

Here is a A5 double sided flyer I put together to promote their live broadcast on 87.9fm throughout August/September.

A boat load of them were handed out at Northern Pride 2013 along with QR code stickers to direct people to the site. I also designed 2 banners for the main stage to promote the station. So far, the station has had a good response - so thumbs up!

Back in early 2012, I took part in Homoground’s latest project - Feminist Playing Cards. The deck features 52 feminist musicians illustrated by 14 feminist artists. As a contributing artist, I decided to illustrate the members of Brighton band Electrelane for the deck; Verity Susman, Mia Clarke, Ros Murray and Emma Gaze.

The project launched a Kickstarter campaign in January and successfully surpassed its goal of £12,000 in March 2012 - totting up a whopping $12,954!

Recently musicians Tegan & Sara supported the project saying “Everyone needs a pack of Feminist Playing Cards! One of our favourite gifts in a long, long time!” - (Rolling Stone)

Bag yourself a pack for $24.99 before they’re all gone HERE
