WIP / 2019
Class Project

This is a (work in progress) project to create a new identity for the Government Communications Headquarters to celebrate its centennial. I have focused on creating a visual language that subtly and playfully resembles the abstract vernacular and inherent visual associations with codebreaking and espionage.

As part of the GCHQ identity I am creating an augmented reality app for iOS that will ‘decode’ hidden information on posters using the phone’s in-built camera. The app will recognise the poster and reveal through animation the details of the GCHQ celebratory event held in London.
