3D designer who has experience in product, furniture, interior and exhibition design. I like to create objects or spaces that encourage interaction from the user as a result of curiosity. Within my design process, I often explore opportunities that materials and manufacturing processes can provide. I have experience in the organisation, planning and budgeting of large projects.Locked Pro Plan feature
Exhibition design for Judith Seng Studio in Berlin, the final installation took place at Istanbul Design Biennale 2018, titled ‘School of Schools’. Firstly, the project involved extensive research into topics involving human interactions, which lead onto idea generation and ongoing material exploration and experiments. Next, was the sketching, development, prototyping and technical drawings for manufacture of the wooden tools used within the installation. Finally, the exhibition design itself, the layout, the structure, the timings and hosting of workshops with visitors of the Design Biennale. This project had a tight budget and therefore I learnt the importance of planning to extreme detail, as well as constantly communicating with the production team along the way. During my time with Judith Seng, I designed a versatile exhibition display system that worked at multiple levels and heights, it was displayed at an art gallery in Belgium. I was also responsible for documenting the finances of the studio and also the co-working space run within the company, as well as the day to day care of running and organising entire space.
During my time at LLOT LLOV design studio, I was the leading designer on the lighting project - FRAN, the initial stages of this project included concept development, material research, colour studies and contacting suppliers in China. The development stage included creating technical drawings for manufacture, prototyping, ordering and reviewing samples from our manufacturer in Poland. The final stages of the project creating instruction manuals, art direction on the photoshoot, photo editing and designing the packaging that FRAN would be delivered in, to protect the product during shipping. This project was shown at OFFSITE by Sight Unseen in New York, and the final product launch is in January 2019. I also worked alongside the senior designer at LLOT LLOV with renovating a lobby area at The Circus Hostel in Berlin. My role involved redesigning the seating area and lighting for the reception, I made accurate spatial measurements and technical drawings, technical development and idea suggestions within Solidworks and created 2D drawings for manufacture. This project also involved selecting suitable fabrics and colours that reflected The Circus as a company.
The Product and Furniture Design at Kingston is an extremely hands on course. From day one you are encouraged to experiment with materials and processes, this means I gained extensive knowledge around the benefits and limits of materials, construction methods and manufacturing methods. Within my time at university, I realised that I had a passion for installations and events. This realisation lead me onto creating the extracurricular, interdisciplinary project ‘CHLORINE’, by reaching out to two students with similar interests on the Graphic Design course. I chose to write my dissertation focused around design as escapism, and how the design of events like festivals can achieve a sense of unity within the society created. This course is well respected and highly ranked within university league tables. I achieved a First Class Honours in 2017.
