JOSH IS THE NAME... Innovating design is the aim! My name is Josh Pinard and I’m currently studying BA product design at Nottingham Trent University. I would describe myself as an outgoing, approchable and unorthodox designer. I aspire to become a successful product designer and become an influence to others in the future. I’m still maturing as a designer but for now I’m enjoying the process of my development. I chose Product design because it helps me express who I am and I want to use my skills to the best of my ability which can be shown through the design process. Outside of design, I play field hockey for NTU and umpire up to national standard. This has helped me develop my teamworking and communication skills. I take a great interest in cooking and fine dining.
Favourite Designer: Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard
Favourite Product: Shoes/trainers - A product that has been adapted
for various suitabilities and climates that can define the user’s characteristics instantly to anyone.

DEADGOOD LIVE BRIEF Design a Light shade that challenges the use of material, manufacture or form for commercial use and fits in with the current Deadgood collection.
Final Product The ‘DAMA’ pendant light is inspired from the corset of a Spanish dancer and also from the existing ‘Working Girl’ collection by Deadgood. DAMA, meaning ‘lady’ in Spanish, means to offer a very simplistic, sustainable and sexy aesthetic for social spaces or offices to provide a diffused style light that creates intriguing shadow effects.
