The reader is educated on the building’s history and it’s relation to Manchester’s impressive achievements towards computer science to help reframe the historical piece of architecture.

The book outlines the research, analogue algorithm, specimen and application for each particular display font. Details within the layouts relate to the connection between the City Tower’s decorative circuit patterns and Manchester’s history of computer science in 1950’s.

INFOGRAPHICS
   2020


A series of visual data ‘profiles’ that narrate the increase of data that Facebook is collecting from their users. Advancements in technology has meant our privacy is progressively being taken from us, often unknowingly. The project uses downloaded data files from an individual’s Facebook to visualise their log ins and outs, account activity and datr cookies to make a statement about the lack of privacy online. 

The profiles become long columns of data to imitate the endless scrolling of Facebook feeds by users. Viewers will find a  booklet to go alongside the posters, explaining the grid structure and the analogue processing behind the designs. Instead of page numbers, a timeline at the bottom of the pages indicates which page they are ‘logged’ into.


A1 posters, varying in length.
