This book cover design for James and the Giant Peach aims to elevate the stature of the jacket by redesigning its role as a interactive chapter marker.

The Optimistic is a newspaper that takes a focus on good news. Adopting the principles of ‘slow’ journalism this quad weekly newspaper takes a reflective view on passing news, highlighting the positive and sourcing good newsworthy articles.

The centre page spread of the newspaper is a space reserved for the happiest highlight from the news.

Stories within the Optimistic concentrate on the upside to the news, headlines aim to show that it is not all doom and gloom (as is the case in many current newspapers).

Taschen Application

This iPad application is essentially a bridge between the TASCHEN website and its printed magazine. Many such applications take away from the leisurely experience of reading a physical publication; this app acts to incorporate such activity with 3D gesticulations and intuitive on screen exploration.
