Mik Scarlet has written a wonderful review for a-n of the publication Access All Areas: Live Art and Disability which I designed for the Live Art Development Agency last year. The intention was to make the publication a benchmark of accessibility, not only in it's appearance, but by including DVDs with video content and even an audio transcription of the whole book. You can read Mik's review here and, if you agree with him, you can buy the publication here

Here's my poster for the docMiami International Film Festival 2012 in Florida. It's inspired by an old movie poster for a film called 'Moon Over Miami' with Betty Grable. The annual festival showcases documentary films and music with a focus on human rights and good causes.

I've been working on some interesting projects recently including DVD work for US performance group Goat Island and philospher and writer Hélène Cixous; conference exhibition work with the illustrator Marcus Oakley; and launching a new campaign with Jamie Catto opposing the UK arms trade called Stop Arming the World. So I thought it really was time to update the design portfolio section of this site...
I've been working on loads of new projects with some amazing clients recently including activist Jamie Catto, the Live Art Development Agency, artist and sculptor Hannah Woodhouse, film director Ross MacGibbon and ethical agency, Forster.

Streetwise Opera is an amazing organisation that stages professional operas performed by people who have experienced homelessness. They recently commissioned me to create four images for their upcoming winter production FABLES. The four fables are The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Oscar Wilde's The Nightingale & The Rose, Hey! Come On Out! by Shinichi Hoshi, and the story of The Hartlepool Monkey. The performances are to be filmed and screened as the highlight of this winter's Shoreditch Music Festival.
David Caines Unlimited has designed the website for children's charity Lumos. The charity, originally called The Children’s High Level Group, was co-founded by author J K Rowling. The new name, Lumos, is named after the spell in J K Rowling's Harry Potter books. (In the books, Lumos causes a small beam of light to emit from the spell-caster's wand.)
Lumos has unveiled its new name and look with a rallying call to put an end to the systematic institutionalisation of disadvantaged children across Central and Eastern Europe.
To find out more about their work, or to support them, take a look at the new website.
