Ankle Deep in the Flicka Foundation

I decided to volunteer for the Flicka Foundation Donkey Sanctuary on a whim. I've always been curious to see what it's like to work with animals but have never had the chance. Thankfully, the foundation is easily accessible to volunteer for through the FXU Flicka Volunteering Project.

Shard (Assignment Magazine)
Shard - Gaming Magazine Assigment

An assignment done for the 2nd academic year, which was to create a magazine as a group project. I was assigned as Lead Design, organising the pages of the magazine and contributing to the overall look, as well as a few articles. I will acknowledge the design is a mess, but it's only an example of the work I produced during my time as a student.

Copywriting is a rather vague-sounding subject, and one that draws confusion whenever it's mentioned.

Home of Springs, Trengwaington: At the Poly

Home of Springs, Trengwaington is a long-running project by Barbara Santi, an established documentary filmmaker currently based in West Cornwall, whose themes often revolve around Cornish heritage, rurality and agriculture. This project in particular is about the Trengwaington gardens in Penzance: it takes place across multiple mediums from the feature film, to the companion book, exhibitions and even a few workshops.

A Loner in a Lonely Land - My Half-Year in Finland

In winter, especially from December to January, the Finns only see the sun for six hours a day. If there's a country that epitomizes the winter blues, it's Finland, complete with the cold, isolation and lots of woodland.

Housing Disasters (And How to Avoid Them)

It'll soon be the start of a new term and soon after, a new academic year will approach faster than you think. Provided you haven't blown your fresher's year on clubbing or whatever, you'll be looking for accommodation outside of halls.
