About

Hello.

I am an enterprising creative designer based in Cheltenham.

In June 2011 I graduated with a first class honours in Product Design Technology after studying at the University of the West of England.  I now work as designer for Kohler Co K&B UK. Kohler Co. are a global Kitchen & Bathroom design business, where I am involved in a number of design based projects. I also work as a part time freelance designer, where I use design as tool to help create impact for small businesses.

Whilst studying I took the opportunity to take a year out in industry and work for a company called Blink. Blink are a creative agency who are dedicated to creating fresh and dynamic brands. Whilst working at Blink I was lucky enough to work on a large range or projects, ranging from creating print ready artwork to helping develop a new pet range for the design conscious pet owner.

During my year in industry I also set up a creative collective with four of my peers called PinkLime. PinkLime is a fresh concept, based on the idea of providing an affordable design solution for small businesses. Over the year trading we were able to develop an extensive portfolio carrying out projects ranging from branding for a software company to product design for manufacture for a sports product.

Please have a look through my site, to see how I may be help to you on your next design project.

Don’t forget to say hello…

Individual Project Progress

This week has been a really productive week working on my individual project. My project addresses the issue of the ever growing demand for convenience food products aimed specifically towards the increasing ageing population.

I am a strong believer that there is a lot that can be gained from food, not from just a nutrition point of view, but from a social aspect. My project will address this issue and allow the user to “get more from food”.

I am looking into issues concerning portion sizes, ease of opening, user interaction with food packaging, with the view to upskilling consumers in a kitchen environment.

Keep an eye out for my progress over the next few weeks, as I will be writing a blog post about my progress each week.

Starbucks Revitalise Packaging

Love it or hate it? After Starbucks announcing refreshing their brand mark by freeing the Siren from the ring. They have now released the revitalised packaging.

They have cleaned up and simplified the overall look and feel of the brand and are now playing on strength of the brand that has now been established on the market place for over 40 years.

This is the Bee’s Knees !!

I have been doing a lot of research into all sorts of different types of packaging for my individual project and came across this the other day!

I really like the subtle detailing on of the small slit with the bee on its way back into the box enticing you to open it, to find out what is inside.

New business cards !!

Over the last few weeks I have been working on promoting myself as a designer. My business cards arrived from the printers on Friday. What do you all think??
