Design & Illustration

ARTEFACT ILLUSTRATION

I am versed in artefact illustration techniques and conventions, having worked previously with archaeology programmes, and having taken a course for my MA in museum studies. I operate with Affinity Designer and Adobe Illustrator to create print-ready vector images that can be scaled to any size.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I am experienced with creating eye-catching and easily comprehensible designs, such as flyers, brochures, website images, and infographics.

Digital Illustration

While I am not doing museum work, I am a freelance digital illustrator, operating under the name ‘Flaroh Illustration’. I love to create art inspired by my fields of interest, whether that be archaeological artefacts, myths, or pieces that echo the aesthetics of a time long past. Much like the Romans with their statues, I am a fan of bright and bold colours, and I strive to break the convention that archaeology is primarily muted earth-tones
