Trump May Day

With Trump today promising a new arms race with Russia and his desire for a ‘Reagan Thatcher’ relationship with Theresa May… I decided it was time to produce a homage to the classic 80’s CND poster.

The original classic is here.

Alpha Delta ’86

Filipa Mendes and Kiva Murphy collect Judges’ Award for Alpha Delta ’86 at the Ottawa Fringe

 

 

 

 

 

Two spies, clown spies. Their job: to covertly listen to phone calls, discover incriminated citizens & sentence them accordingly.

Unfortunately, they are more interested in eating biscuits than finding culprits. Exploring the banality of evil and the dehumanising effect of a surveillance culture, our two clowns play out games of domination, power and baked goods.

An anarchic physical theatre show including audience participation, use of a typewriter as musical accompaniment and…biscuit eating spies.

UK Major Ports Group (UKMPG) Website Design

A full redesign and relaunch for the UK Major Ports Group website. The key design brief was to keep the site simple: the core users for the site were identified as being at a low level of digital literacy. Users would be accessing the site from potentially quite old hardware or hand held devises, so a clean, simple and mobile responsive site was key. The site was built on the WordPress CMS using the Genesis framework and includes event management, integrated CSS driven newsletter, members only area, social media integration and secure document storage and sharing.
