SWDDS AWARDS 2019
I was the winner of the Digital Design category in the 2019 South West Design + Digital Student Awards run by Proctor + Stevenson. The project I entered was Second Chance, a campaign I designed to educate users on better food management in order to reduce household waste. This interactive campaign works through an app that functions alongside specially designed food packaging labels which are scanned, similarly to QR codes, to reveal short educational animations showing users alternative and innovative tactics to help reduce the amount of salvageable food that they throw away.
I was awarded a 3-month paid placement at Proctors, where I gained experience working within a design industry and working on client briefs as well as in-house branding, and was then offered another 3 month extension. I was also honoured to be invited to be a judge at the 2020 SWDDS Awards.
RSA STUDENT DESIGN AWARDS 2018/19
I was extremely honoured that my animation Passing Conversations was the winner of the NHS England Award of £2000 in the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) Student Design Awards 2018/19. The brief Living and Dying Well, was for an animation to clarify and illuminate the Michael Burke's TED Talk, which explored why talking about illness and planning for death is important for people affected by serious health conditions. Passing Conversations is an animation that brings to life everyday inanimate objects facing fears and concerns in the run up to death, aiming to encourage a more positive approach to this challenging subject in a light-hearted and playful manner, accessible for even younger audiences.
CREATIVE CONSCIENCE 2019
CREATIVE CONSCIENCE 2018
I had the honour of having two of my projects shortlisted by Creative Conscience. The first being my collaborative project with Esme Woodington, for which we designed reusable takeaway packaging named SilaBox. The other project was my motion graphic Beneath The Surface based on oil spills in the ocean.
THE STRAW CINEMA
AUB Human featured my motion graphic Beneath The Surface based on oil spills in the ocean in their straw-bale cinema, also featuring the short documentary: A Plastic Ocean, We need a sea of change. Many of my projects have a focus on environmental sustainability, as this is something I am really passionate about. So, it was a great opportunity to have my film featured as part of the AUB Human symposium.
I had the opportunity to be part of a one-day workshop based on urban interventions; designing installations within an environment to provoke a reaction from the public. User-centred design shows us how design can provoke and change people’s behaviours or actions just by adding something new to their environment.
My team and I created a diagonal rainbow zebra crossing to create a shorter path to the university. As the workshop also coincided with Pride, we decided incorporate the rainbow colours into our design.
