Locus is a publication concept designed alongside Jennifer Ayre and Vicki Hesketh.

Locus would travel around locations capturing the true life and beauty of design that can be discovered. Edition one was created whilst completing a residency in Liverpool in which we each produced a personal response to the city in the form of a book.

This edition composes of three publications sealed within a box. The first smallest book, produced by Vicki, contains handwritten notes from the people who love Liverpool. Inside illustrating an array of memories, anecdotes and descriptions of personal relationships to the city. My response, book two, explores pattern and shape discovered within the city. The images are specifically selected to highlight the true beauty of pattern which usually can be overlooked. The third book created by Jennifer composes a collection of typography, presenting a real appreciation to lettering design and production.
