I am an enthusiastic, outgoing designer with a passion for objects and spaces and the way people interact with them. I come from a fine art background, having a 2:1 in Sculpture from Brighton University, which has given me a unique approach to product and interior design. Since graduating I have exhibited at 3 different London design shows, including Clerkenwell Design Week 2014, which led to me being invited to exhibit at Shanghai Design 2015. Most recently I have been working at Zone Creations, a design and manufacturing company, working on bespoke designs for a range of clients. This built on my previous experience working at Ordinary design, as well as my freelance work designing a number of interiors, including Sushilicious, a restaurant in Box Park, Shoreditch. During my time at Zone Creations, I worked as part of a small design team taking projects from concepts right through to in house production, giving me an in depth knowledge of all aspects of product design including manufacturing and the constraints of materials and tolerances. I love exploring new ways of creating objects and spaces, through a merger of technology and materials and enjoy the challenge of incorporating different specifications into my design, working out it’s functionality as well as creating a beautiful objects and spaces. You can see the range of my work in my portfolio at: felixproctor.co.uk I am now available for work and am eager to pursue a career in bespoke design within an agency, where I will be able to work on a variety of projects, with different materials and thrive in this creative environmentLocked Pro Plan feature
During my time as a freelancer I have worked on a number of live interior projects, including Sushilicious, a sushi restaurant in Box Park Shoreditch. This was a particularly exciting project for me as I was able to create a design that worked within the constraints of a shipping container including light and space, to create an inviting and engaging space for the customer. This project also gave me a real insight to designing for a client and working within a budget, developing on the skills I previously gained through the design of Cloak, a retail space in the heart of Brighton. It was also during this time that I was invited to exhibit my furniture designs at Shanghai Design 2015 (having exhibited at Clerkenwell Design the previous year). It was really exciting to not only be able to exhibit my work but also discover the Chinese design market, and get first hand experience doing business in that culture. These shows were also a fantastic opportunity for me to really develop my skills as a furniture designer, especially in terms of learning about the manufacturing of products and curating exhibition spaces. It also gave me a chance to use my photography and design skills through creating promotional materials using the Adobe Creative Suite.
I worked at Zone Creations for 5 months as part of a small design team (alongside a large manufacturing team). I worked on a variety of projects including marketing products for retail, bespoke furniture and interiors. My role included working with clients and taking their briefs from concepts to presentation ready renders, through to production, working alongside the in house production team. My job required an in depth knowledge of production techniques and materials to enable me to create innovative designs, while ensuring they were able to be manufactured on time and within the budget. The variety of projects, and very technical elements of some of the briefs, really help me develop my skills as a designer, especially in terms of solving challenging technical briefs. I worked mainly in Solidworks and was able enhance my skills creating technical drawings and using plug-ins to create my designs.
During my time at Ordinary Ltd I worked as part of a small team on furniture, interior and architectural projects. My role included making bespoke furniture for clients, taking the project from concepts right through to in house production as well as designing a series of residential and commercial buildings, which I developed into presentation ready renders. The variety of projects really helped me develop as a designer, especially in terms of my rendering skills (building on the skills I learnt from my 7 week placement at Mike Miller Associates).
Whilst at Mike Miller Associates (furniture manufacturers) I worked as a Cad Intern where I learnt to create renders ready for manufacturing as well as creating 3D production ready models.
Whilst at university I was able to explore design from a Fine Art perspective, focusing not just on the functionality of an object or space but also the multi-sensory way people experience them. This has become a continued passion of mine, as I still am fascinated by the way that people react and interact with textures, shapes and light.
