Design For Industry Portfolio 2016

I am a Fourth year student at Northumbria University studying Design for Industry. Art & Design has always been one of my most keen interests in and out of education. This is a collection of the work I’ve been up to the past couple of years.

Over the summer last year I spent 4 months in Cambridge with a design consultancy called Special Agent. I worked with companys like Adidas, Kuerig and Mars.

I also work part time for a design innovation and product development company called Cohda. A*A*A*: BTEC Level 2 First Award and Design D*D*D*: Art & Design Extended Diploma Level 3

The Cultural Isles is a social media brand of my creation. The aim is to portray a somewhat just image of youth culture today. @the_cultural_isles

As a group of 7, we had to design a set for hot drinks. The set would be served to first class British Airways passengers. The concept of having two compartments to the vessel is so that in the event of turbulance, the BA passanger can pop the parts together to prevent spillage.

For our research we visited Appleton Lodge, and gained some key insights into the thoughts and memories of people living with dementia. The three main areas we found that made the residence happy were reminising about their youthful freedom, talking about their previous occupations and finally escapism through music.

We decide to pursue the idea of assisting through suggestive sensory patterns, designing a range of garden products to help with routine. This aligned with maintaining the idea of freedom of people living with dementia, whilst also linking with the occupational theapy insight we gained during our visit to Appleton Lodge.

USER EXPERIENCE MAP Martyn used to work for a major graphic design company in the 80’s but retired early so him and his wife could move to Stokesley, the place where they where born. Martyn misses the creative lifestyle and has been looking for commission work. Bill owns his own electricians business. He has worked with a lot of people and is quite business wise. Although business has been ok, he would love to see growth.
