Projects ranged from creating national health information websites to designing a logo for a community garden project. I gained experience in the Scottish food and drink industry by developing a brand-packaging for a limited-edition island of Islay whisky and also designing and directing a house recipe book for a prestigious Glasgow seafood restaurant.
