Final year project
Improving sketching confidence, ability and skill.
Improving sketching confidence, skill and speed.
Bridging the gap between digital and traditional sketching methods. It provides interactive, visual guides through paper. Visual, as opposed to physical guides allow the development of muscle memory. The user can easily adjust the guides through the paper with the touch screen as well as the brightness with the slider.
Portable sketching assistance.
The product consists of two screens that can attach together with magnets to allow use with A4 or A3 paper. They can be packed away into an A4 case for improved portability.
A project from my placement year at Inca Creative. I assisted with the technical design of a 12 meter high rose wall installation for John Lewis.
The canopy provides dappled shade by day and atmospheric lighting by night. Solar cells on its surface make it self sufficient. A few light dependant resistors enable the canopy to rotate and follow the sun across the sky to maximise efficiency. There is also a charging port, useful for items such as speakers or phones.
Another project from my placement year at Inca Creative. Development of a wooden framed visual merchandising plot for the Westfield John Lewis home ware department.
A collaborative project to automate using an AeroPress. A linear actuator pushes coffee into a mug which then rotates to be topped up with a shot of Baileys.
I’m particularly interested in sustainability, as well as taking inspiration from nature.
My final year project involves bridging the gap between digital and traditional sketching methods by providing interactive, visual guides through paper. Visual, as opposed to physical guides allow the development of muscle memory. Many design students are not confident sketching, this product aims to encourage traditional pen on paper sketching, leading to the quick and successfully capture and communication of ideas. At Inca Creative I worked on many projects from concept to installation. I had to rapidly develop my technical design skills as there was a real need for the designs to be structurally sound. I’m committed to have a career combining creativity with thorough technical understanding. I also aim to always continue learning.
