Product, Graphic, Interaction Design


Hello

I'm currently studying MDes Product Design at Sheffield Hallam University and working to expand my portfolio and experience. I love the idea of making products that have value to the people who use them and manufacturing them in a responsible manner, whether this is through materials, process or location.   

Im originally from Stoke-on-Trent but currently live in Sheffield, both places have a deep heritage and are  world renowned for design and making. It's hard not to be influenced by that.

With design becoming ever more varied I've tried to build a varied portfolio which encompasses industrial, graphic and interaction design.

Experience


Jake Phipps and Click Industrial Design

My skill set ranges from card modelling and sketching through to CAD, Photoshop and Indesign. I'm as comfortable in a workshop environment experimenting with materials as I am behind a desk working on graphical layouts or perfecting detail in CAD. Ive honed my skills in industry with two internships.

 My first period of experience in industry was at Click Industrial Design, a consumer product design consultancy in Sheffield, where I worked on a range of projects for various clients. This was a brilliant insight and huge learning curve into industrial scale design and manufacture.

The Second was with Jake Phipps a furniture and lighting studio in London.

 I was lucky enough to work on a number of high end products form bespoke furniture and commissions to pendent light shades. 
I also gained experience in exhibiting helping to exhibit at Super Brands London as part of the London Design Festival and at the Goldsmiths pavilion at Somerset House during the summer of 2013.

Although opposite ends of the spectrum both have been invaluable meaning that my industrial design skills from modelling and sketching through to CAD and working with manufacturers have all been improved. At the same time I've learnt a considerable amount about furniture making as well as exhibiting and working on bespoke or small run products.
