For my self-promotional piece, I decided to create a small booklet that would show off my skills, including typography, layout and illustration. The cover is a reworked and modernised version of Jan Tschichold’s iconic work for Penguin Books. The idea being to subvert the cover to make it read as if this ‘great novel’ has been written about myself, the copy in the back isn’t perfect but you get the idea. I plan to improve this over the summer and make it have more deadpan humour. The cover also includes a small caricature of myself as the penguin mascot. I have used a strong bold sans-serif typeface for the cover, to make it stand out. Overall I am happy with my work but I do feel it could be bettered, as it stands I don’t feel that it is ‘unconventional’ enough, but this is something to be worked on over summer.
Just spent allmost 2 hours in staples trying to print my self promo work, gonna have nightmares about this
problems printing my booklet
my printer having a mare and its now forced me to go get it printed properly at staples, hopefully they’ll be able to do it right. I hate leaving stuff like this to other people. stress levels going through the roof

“Illustration, Packaging, and Interactivity are my main strength in graphic design right now That’s why I have decided to create a self promo item that clearly shows these 3 capabilities. A custom toy wrapped in a nice packaging, designed and crafted by myself. Here, I wanted to show that I
have other capabilities other than creating a 2D prints design. This toy will be sent together with my cover letter and CV when applying jobs for my desired companies.”

(THE CHEMIST) NMP - COFFEE/ BAGS.
So the coffee bags are finally finished with the coffee blend inside. Both me and Liam managed to get our own blend made for my NMP. Really happy with it. Everything on the coffee bags apart from the stamp set that that wrote the ‘The Mendeleev Blend’ was illustrated by myself. The stamp was made by the ‘English Stamp Company’ with my logo design that was also hand drawn.
