Oxford University Press asked me to design a concept for a new edition of the childrens classic 'Black Beauty'.
This new critical edition would take a deeper look at the underlying themes of the story and be aimed at a more mature audience.
To reflect this I chose a much more sombre design, using the close up of a horse's eye to connect the viewer with the main character of the book.Graphic Design2013
This was the winning design in an open pitch for the 2009 Textiles graduate catalogue at UCF.
The brief was to create a sophisticated package for individual student 'postcards' that would showcase their work, on a budget of £500.
Through carefully designing the package & cards to waste as little paper as possible in the printing process I was able to deliver this design on budget.Graphic Design, Photography, Print Design2013
These leaflets provide key course information to visitors on open days at UCF.
I felt the old design failed to reflect both the great facilities at the University as well as the amazing surroundings of Falmouth & Cornwall.
To convey both of these I created a barrel fold leaflet that once fully opened provided all the key course information as well as acting as a window to a typical view in Falmouth.Editorial Design, Graphic Design, Print Design2012
The 2010 RSA Design Directions asked for a new product or service that would use supermarkets to bring back a sense of community.
My solution was to combine online shopping with social networking, allowing friends and neighbours to pick up each others shopping from the supermarket.Through delivering each others groceries, participants would get to know the residents of their street or neighbourhood better and help re-build a sense of community.
This project was shortlisted for the 2010 RSA Design Directions student awards.Branding, Graphic Design, Print Design2012
Shed Light is a conceptual campaign set to run parallel to the 2008 Olympics in China.
As many critics were accusing China of using the Olympic games to overshadow alleged human rights violations I thought it would be appropriate to hi-jack the visual identity of the games and apply it to the campaign.
I used the official pictograms of the games to highlight individual areas of concern along with a campaign trail that would mimic the official torch relay, visiting individuals that Amnesty International believed to be at risk.
This was all tied together under the visual style of Amnesty International.Graphic Design, Print Design2012

The 'Capture Your Day' collection is a free set of pocket books to help people take better photos at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
The U-Fold book has a selection of images from each dome that can then be opened out to view a map of the location each photograph was taken.
Not only will this help visitors capture their experience of the Eden Project it also encourages them to fully explore the site.Digital Photography, Graphic Design, Print Design2012

I'm Chris Brown.
I studied Graphic Design at University College Falmouth.
I believe great design is all about ideas.
And that good ideas start on paper.
Backed up by a wealth of visual research.
And not to mention ensuring a good understanding of the brief.
I also love photography.
I’m happiest when I’m on my Bike, Surfboard or Snowboard.
I work well independently & in a team.
I produce my best work when I have a lot to do.
