Time goes fast

By | Design | No Comments

Today I realised I’ve been back at AR for two months now, but perhaps what is more unbelievable is the fact I have only got 4 weeks left. I’m not sure how working seems to create what I can only define as a time warp. I’ve really enjoyed getting back into working life and have learnt significant amounts not only just about design but more specifically time management and the design process. Unfortunately I’m not in a position to share some of the work Ive been producing but of course feel free to check out their website here. The weekends of…

What’s going on?

By | Design | No Comments

Wow, its been a while! For the past few months I’ve been living in Bath and working freelance which is rather exciting. I’ve produced extension drawings, done CAD layouts, made models and even made some of my own clothes. I’ve also attempted to Sketch a lot more to try and remember how to draw without some form of computer aid. In all honesty, it’s been great having the opportunity to really enjoy Bath as a city and not be living my life somewhere in between studio, a bus and my uni room! However, i’ve still tried to make  it my mission…

AR Design Studio

By | Architecture, Design | No Comments

So after an amazing 6 Months, I’ve finally finished my placement at AR Design Studio! I honestly can’t believe how much i’ve learnt throughout the placement experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Working for a relatively small practice also had great advantages and I was able to participate in multiple design stages, was exposed to the architectural world through lectures, competitions and trips and I was even made to build a sculpture.  Massive thanks to the whole team, I had a brill time.

Exciting news!? I have a placement, woooo! I'm now working at an architecture practice called 'AR Design Studio' in Winchester and you can check them out here. What I have been dying to blog about though is a mini project of mine that  i've been working on since moving out of bath in late January. I say mini project, its more a mini portfolio. I wanted to create a CV that would grab people's attention, that was fun, and that I felt was a true reflection of me and thus, the tin was born! Using a circle cutter I found online...

The Mobius shoe.

By | Architecture, Design | No Comments

Being back at uni has already lead to late night blog posts, but i’m still here. So today, I wanted to do a feature post on United Nude, a shoe company founded in 2003. Having read Tamara Mellon’s memoir, ‘In her shoes’, this summer, my love for shoes has grown even stronger. Whether they’re flats, heels or somewhere in between, I appreciate them. But why United Nude you ask!? For the Mobius Shoe, almost a heel without a heel. A sculptural piece of shoe design that has since become a classic. It is thought to have been inspired by Mies…
