The contest run by twhl.info was simply about creating something beautiful and eye catching while only using 30 brushes; brushes are convex 3D shapes created within the source engines tool Hammer, they allow level designers to define the shape of the world. The majority of my brush count for the entry went towards the buoy ; i decided that this would be the main object in the scene and detailed it accordingly.
All the content used within the scene is stock Half-life 2 & Episode 2, aside from the sky texture which was created by komaokc and can be downloaded here. The Contest brief can be found here.
Obsession & Collection
The Obsession and Collection was a project during my foundation degree at university; it was about designing the poster for an fictional exhibition at the Design Museum showcasing peoples weird and wonderful collections. The idea for the design sprang around the myth (or reality) that magpies would obsessively collect shiny objects.
The SCES (South Coast Electrical Systems) logo and business card was an opportunity that arose when a tutors friend needed some design work done. I looked into electrical diagrams and such to come to the final design that was chosen.
