The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was a standout weekend for everyone involved. Freelance photographer and Graphic Designer Celeste Morton captured the day strikingly with photographs that each depicted a character with a story to tell.

“I headed to Westminster bridge on the monumental day, overlooking the jubilee boat parade, I’m not a die hard royalist but I was fascinated to see the special amount of effort people had gone to to witness the Queen. The weather was grey but spirits were high, and everyone seemed excited. I snapped the boy on his father’s shoulders just as a helicopter passed above and he turned to look, with the flag almost unfurling from his head like a speech bubble.”

“Regarding the girl; there was a fenced off pen for the armed forces, and it struck me how young some of the cadets were. I was watching them more than the big screens with Her Majesty on it, they were extremely intriguing people. This girl was particularly good to photograph, as she kept on craning her neck to watch the screens and she looked very important in her little navy hat, like innocence and youth dressed as a grown up. Lovely embroidered lettering as well. Even I can’t deny the uniforms are sensational.”

Celeste combines her love of photography with her discipline of graphic design. Living in London, she is constantly observing ongoing events. More of her work can be seen here.

About Rowan Ottesen

Hello I'm Rowan, a Graphic Designer In London. A strong body of my work is type based, having even designed a typeface or two. Combining vector graphics, with illustration, image and shape, I diversely design anything from intricate patterns, to visuals and logos. I've also created two installation pieces, as well as being a lover of classic literature, writing short stories, as well as songs - having previously played shows with a band in London. I think the Gola Student Ambassador project is fantastic. It's a great opportunity to work with a well-known, respected brand, by displaying the rich artistic community nurtured in Britain. It's a chance to not only be creative, but to also collaborate with others in a positive and meaningful way.
