Editorial/Layout/Conceptual Design

Ciara achieved a First Class Degree in Book Arts and Design at The University of the Arts London in 2014.

The BA course encouraged the exploration of ‘narrative’ in new interesting ways, the main focus being on effective visual design communication.


Projects combined the use of illustrative techniques, alongside typographical design layouts within Adobe InDesign. Traditional book binding techniques were then taught to home projects.

Having previously studied photography at A-level, Ciara was keen to explore the subject further within her dissertation and accompanying projects; focusing on 'family photography as ideology'.


Below you will find a few of her conceptual Book Design projects, as well as some more recent examples of editorial/layout work using Adobe InDesign.
