These images will be of particular interest from a graphic design perspective.  This material is currently being catalogued under the Maidstone College of Art Archive, and is currently available at UCA Maidstone Campus. It includes examples of typography, including letraset

Below are examples of book illustrations produced

Work produced included a co-operate identity project (below) for a diploma show, Maidstone District. This included bus timetables, memo, letterheads, and brochures

 

  

  Also included is the award winning handprinted Decimal Currency Project, a prize awarded by the British Federation of Masters Printers.  

 

  Another example includes an example of a fictional boutique, His and Hers. At a time where colours were very subtle, the bright colours were very stand out for the time.
