Currently based between

London (UK) & Stuttgart (DE)

Formally trained as a Graphic Designer and Visual Communicator, my practice focuses on modes of display and representation. While my formal profession as an Exhibition Designer allows me to work within the most pragmatic aspects of this subjects, my personal extends this through the conceptual exploration of topics related to media and its relational value to society.

 

Under the name, Cerrato–Halls, Jon and I explore ideas about value and living standards in our collaborative practice, which extends to exhibitions, talks and writing. This collaboration started while studying Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art.

 

Commissions and collaborations welcomed.
