BOM is a gallery and co-working space for art, tech and science, in Birmingham city centre.
I began freelancing for BOM in early 2015, and later in the year moved in to work from the co-working space.
I design BOM's printed materials, exhibition graphics, identities for sub-brands, interior signage and everything in between.

Warwick Arts Centre

I've updated Creative Alliance's brand identity, enabling them to utilise their brand colour more predominantly across their marketing collateral.
As part of the overhaul, I created a set of brand guidelines for CA's apprentices to work from, and a series of print materials (pictured) including a 60pp Employer Pack, a gatefold flow-chart direct mailer, and a 4pp leaflet.

In addition to general curating/organising tasks, I designed marketing materials for two events; Midland Masters 1 &2. This involved producing two-colour risograph printed programmes, beermats, flyers, posters and more.
Glug Birmingham is now led entirely by Inkygoodness.
