Can’t Make It To The Degree Show?

Here’s  a little look at some of the work I have on display

I’ll try to get some more photos up throughout the week.

 

 

I Always Take Something Back From My Travels Even If It’s Just A Story.

This collection focuses on the sentiment of mementoes and our urge to collect and store memories. Inspiration comes from my personal experiences and combining my  love of travel with my  fascination of architectural forms. I have created a collection of delicate yet structural pieces, which offer a tactile and tangible way to reminisce.

One Day We Will Look Back On This And Laugh

imagesHELLLO!!!

Sorry it has been a bit quite here lately I have been super busy.

First of all we reached our kickstarter target! (YAAAAY) so will be heading off to London in June for New Designers. So a big big THANKYOU to everyone who supported, donated and shared out campaign, the support has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated.  You’ll all be getting little gifts and rewards sent out in the next few months.

In other news I have been busy preparing for assessments and degree show. So it has been a hectic few weeks of finishing pieces, painting, setting up spaces and presenting my work. However all of the stress is over  and I cannot wait for next Friday. The degree show Space is looking fantastic.

It’s also nice to have a little more time on my hands so I’ll try to use that to keep up to date on here.

Until then go have a little looky at my Facebook page and brand new website:

We’ve been working our little butts off promoting our Kickstarter Campaign to get to New Designers and have made significant progress raising £1,770 so far however with only 5 days left time is running out and if we do not … Continue reading

“It’s a busy time of year, that’s for sure–the fun sort of busy, usually. But with that fun frenzy comes a pile of to-do’s, a mountain of stress, all the daily pressures that build up, little by little, until one day you realize there’s a pit of worry in your stomach. There’s a knot tangled with all the things that unsettle you. And you see that somewhere, in the midst of it all, you forgot to breathe.

 You think: No wonder they tell us to stop and smell the roses.”

Amongst all of the making and writing and making and sketch-booking and making we have also been doing some Fundraising to help send some of us  to New Designers. New Designers is an exhibition for graduates and is a fantastic opportunity for young designers to showcase their talent, kickstart their career and get themselves and their work out into the “real world”

It’s pretty much the place to be!

Only 1  problem: FUNDS.  We gotta get a stand for New designers, get ourselves and our work to and from London and accommodate ourselves for 1 week. As full-time students we just don’t have enough £££ to do this by ourselves. That’s where YOU come in.

You can help a diverse group of talented, hardworking designers take an invaluable opportunity to launch their careers and show off their talent.  Have a look at our KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN to learn more about us, see some of us in action and see what YOU can do to be a part of it all. And remember in the words of TESCO “every little helps”…we might even give you a little something, just to say thanks.
