Subway Duo
This was a group project completed by 3 of my class-
mates and myself. We created our own promotion for
subway which we called Subway Duo. This was a meal
which two people could share. We also made flyers,
promotional materials, posters, advertising and a gim-
ick to be given away with each purchase.
My job in the group was the packaging. I designed my
own templates and designs for the sandwich holder
that fits inside the main box (not pictured), the box to
hold everything, and the drinks holder.
Our idea was presented to a panel of judges which
they loved our ideas and our work, and were very hap-
py with the end result.

For my calendar brief I wanted to do something a little different from
most regular calendars. The result was my 3D robot. The text was cre-
ated in Illustrator and the metal panels in Photoshop. It also features a
creative barcode. I think this is a great example of my creativity and abil-
ity to think outside of the box.

Falcon Beverages
Falcon Breverages is my own drinks range. The idea be-
hind the product is an alcoholic drink with only natu-
ral flavours and sweeteners. I created the logo, all the
labels, art work, barcodes, posters and the packaging.
The most difficult part was working out how the pack-
aging was going to be put together, as it is all one piece.
