Because of it’s flexibility Soft Storage can be rolled up and moved to another place within the home or when packing up and moving. Soft Storage has adjustable straps allowing the multi-function, with either side able to be removed. An extra pair of straps means the removed half can still be used. These straps have grip backing to prevent slipping. Including 7 stitched pockets of varied sizes suitable for multi-function and organised storage.


RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT.

Our clients, Umbra and John Lewis required a design which would be which could be manufactured and sold at a affordable price for our target market. Also providing a colour scheme to follow for their brands. Soft Storage has a grid like pocket design to simplify manufacture and keep costs down. Using felt for the entire product as well as thread continues to keep the design uncomplicated and affordable.


Up-cycling Project PULP Project Brief To use a material commonly wasted and damaging to the environment and up-cycle this material to create a new product. Thinking about the up-cycling process and a market the product would fit within.

PULP UP-CYCLED PAPER

PULP is collection of up-cycled paper products which use a bold textile design to create on trend aesthetics to appeal to young adults This collection is made up of more decorative small pieces for the home, perfect for young adults with small spaces.


DETAILS

The bowls are embroidery with thread to add another textile and colour to the design. This embroidery also appears on the light shade. Colour is added during the pulping process to create dusky shades. I’ve added more pigmented colour and patterns. The PVA glue added during the pulping process makes the products durable and better quality.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

The dre aded

To attract young people to learn about their own mental health and others. I tapped into tribal settings such as school and social media. Creating a talking point for mental health, allowing earlier education/ understanding and a break down of stigma surrounding the topic of mental health. Educate on the Brain is used within social media and has a website but also has handouts and stickers to cover every demographic and reach every young person.

To develop the project and style of the designs, I researched current styles of illustration which inform and aid on mental health. I wanted to get an idea of the trends within the culture of a teenage culture. Therefore developing my illustrations to appeal and attract young people. Creating my own trend on the education of mental health.
