First family holiday all together in a long time.
We explored the Algarve (South Portugal), visiting small towns and secluded beaches.
Soaking up all the sun we could.
I've dreamt of going to the Isle of Skye to explore and live out in the middle of nowhere for six years now and I got to live that dream with my oldest friends.
I've designed logos, video promos and photographed the rise CrossFit Hereford from the beginning; it has been a privilege to see them grow after all their hard work.
They truly deserve every success and I recommend them to everyone.
My first time going to Portugal.
A friend and I hired a car and saw the entire country, starting and finishing in the South.
We saw the long beaches with high crashing waves, the architecture of Lisbon, the beautiful people in Lisbon, the view from the highest peak and the small towns nestled into the deep valleys hidden away.
To go along with the brochure that showcased the services that Nomensa offers, I designed a range of case studies based upon work done in a range of sector. This included photography and placement into various devices.
Each images show both sides of a single case study, as they were designed to be cards that cards be slotted into the brochure.
Nomensa needed a brochure designed that would showcase the five main services that they offer. This would be sent out to the CEO's of a select few companies.
After deciding upon the structure with Mathew French (fellow designer at Nomensa), I designed the brochure and supplied the photography. We used a freelance copywriter to help with the words.
"From a young age I have been interested in how things work and how they could be improved. There is something about timber that I just love. Taking a rough sawn board and revealing the magical natural grain, then you proceed to craft this into a useable object that can fit into anyones home.
When I make something it is me expressing myself, as I am not one to dance or draw amazingly so my outlet is furniture. Most of my furniture is simplistic, but has a qwerkyness to it that is more often than not in the form of curves as I am most attracted to their shape. I suppose really the heart and sole of it is that it is the one thing that I am half good at and I just am in love with the whole process (besides pulling my hair out in-between)." - Sam Bolt
When he's not at Rycotewood Furniture Centre studying BA Furniture Design, you can find him in his family workshop, hand crafting beautiful award winning bespoke pieces.
Alan Peters Award 2014
On of the best experiences of my life; heart pounding moments in-between having to constantly push yourself to get in the time limit.
Organised three days before we set-off, we climbed the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in under 24hours.
Two of my closest friends and I bundled into a tiny car and took shifts driving between each peak so the others could sleep, recover and prep.
If you're thinking of doing this and want some advice, please feel free to email me.
Organised in a weeks time, two of my closest friends and I hired a car and drove across Slovakia over four days.
We stayed with an amazing family who completely looked after us and gave us somewhere to stay in the -20°C which would have frozen us to death. They taught us to ski and showed us their little town in the shadow of the mountains.

The key things to keep in mind when designing e-commerce sites for the general public and the potential drastic positive impact it could have on sales.
These are some my closest friends; the type of friends that are more like family as you've known them for far longer than you haven't.
Visiting Grandparents in Florida who haven't seen us in a decade.
They were kind enough to surprise us with a three day cruise to the Bahamas while we were out there too!
"It takes a long time for a man to look like his portrait."
- James McNeil Whistler
I can't remember how I came across this quote but it made me want to do a self-portrait, especially as I've never done one before.
