[ ABOUT THE ARTIST ]
Reader is a passionate designer who thrives on challenges and revels in great ideas. His career has been built on a foundation of passion and enthusiasm for design that always shines through in the work.
Reader is a Visual Communications graduate from Birmingham City University with over eight years of experience in Graphic Design, both in-house and with design agencies. His skills include concept design, project management, and final design implementation.
[ ROUNDABOUT ] Proposal
For our ROUNDABOUT project, Reader proposes to transform the Chapel Ash underpass into a well-known destination for arts, community and performance through a strong brand identity that will be echoed across the underpass alongside the other artwork.
Using strong imagery and graphic design to leave a lasting impression on pedestrians in the underpass, the ultimate goal of Reader's proposal is to turn Roundabout into a hub for art exhibitions, music performances, street food, craft stalls and other enjoyable activities.
His work will also present opportunities to promote artists' work and make Roundabout a well-known destination, which will help boost tourism in the area.
