From Installation Artist to professional CAD Draughtsman, I have been lucky enough to work in a diverse range of fields. I recently applied my distinctive blend of conceptual and technical skills to help launch and develop the now successful furniture brand Joined + Jointed; exhibiting this year at Salone Del Mobile. A holistic designer with an appreciation of what is involved in taking a product from concept to creation, I am now looking to build on this success and contribute towards an exciting new project in a dynamic team. I strive to consider all work holistically and simply. Understanding context and delivering simple, meaningful work with delightful details. A lightweight design, a lightweight environmental impact and a lightweight journey.
After joining the company as an intern, I was soon offered a full-time role managing the J+J website and developing projects. Working in a small team required taking on a number of different roles and enabled me to refine skills in technical drawing, coding and project management. I built an inventory system for the company, developed new web pages, new retail pieces and coordinated a large hotel refurbishment contract. More than anything, however, my time at Channels taught me how to design holistically and enduringly - to consider details, proportion and investment at every scale in order to produce the very best work.
A fast-paced working environment with plenty of hands-on work. I helped with a number of projects, including producing CAD drawings for architectural and domestic products and developing the website.
Apple are well known for their impeccable after sales care and customer service and as a reseller of Apple products, Solutions Inc have equally high expectations. Teaching and problem-solving were as much a part of my job here as selling. Our targets reflected the importance of these aspects; targets that I met each month. I particularly enjoyed the problem-solving aspect of the job which allowed me to learn more about the hardware, software and processes of the computers and the company.
A conceptual course weighted equally between studio practice and history of art. Here I studied sculpture with a particular focus on site-specific installations.
I was awarded the Passey Art Prize for 'Best in Show' for a collaborative piece between myself and a fellow student. Our practices were very complimentary - both concerned with material memory - mine the past and my friend's the future.
