In my role as a student on the London College of Communication Postgraduate Certificate in Design for Visual Communication I was asked to create an instructional aid on the topic of colour theory.
Design principles: Colour from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo.
As part of that design process I also experimented with exploring the idea of an economic sociology of law and development, through the lens of colour theory

Also as part of the London College of Communication Postgraduate Certificate in Design for Visual Communication I was asked to analyse one characteristic across a range of typefaces. I chose the counter (centre) of the letter O and chose the typefaces to represent the characteristics of the disciplines in which I have an interest:
Helvetica for Design
Courier for Economics
Futura for Sociology
Baskerville for Law
Stencil for Development
Gill Sans for an Economic Sociology of Legal Development
The process of making the video helped me in thinking through the ideas behind my SLSA prize-winning article, The Case for a Visualised Economic Sociology of Legal Development Current Legal Problems (2014) 67 (1): 169-198.
