Thematic Mapping

Text & Image- Project 3: Thematic Mapping

For this brief I needed to create a thematic map of Blackpool based on the research I gathered during the trip to Blackpool. I finally decided to base my map on the theme of attraction. My map show you when each attraction is open throughout the year. Above you can see the designI created for both sides of the map. One side has a full page map of the Blackpool area with coloured & numbered stars where each attraction is, the other side is the front & back cover and the list of attractions at Blackpool. I created all the illustrations that you can see on this map using Adobe Illustrator.

Below you can see the printed version of my map.

Final 60 second animation

This is an animation I made for my final project in Motion Design for my Graphic Design course at University of Chester.
The project involved me selecting a 60 second part of soundtrack from a podcast of my choice from the BBC Four shortcuts series.
I chose the podcast ‘someone to watch over me’ and selected 60 seconds from the part about a school invigilator.

Let it begin!


I am currently studying my second year of  Graphic Design at University of Chester. In this blog I am hoping to show you the work I am creating during my time in university and any personal work I may be working on. Some areas of Graphic Design that I am interested in are Animation, Advertising and Identity and Branding. I will be posting about the work I am doing and hopefully some of the process taken to complete each task.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and will come back to check for new posts!
