PART 1 ARCHITECTURAL ASSISTANT
2009 Student Class Representa ve,
4 Claremont Court,
I am an enthusias c hardworking designer, with a passion for dance, publica on and travel (just like most people these days). Ideally I would like to work in an environment that is challenging, crea ve, posi ve and collabo‐ ra ve, where I can both learn from, and contrib‐ ute towards my colleagues. I enjoy si ng around a table brainstorming with people, discussing ideas and learning new things. I am equally confi‐ dent working individually and dealing with cli‐ ents directly.

The Michelin Star Restaurant in Mayfair, Lon‐ don, run by chef Atul Kochar, wanted to refresh their image and branding. During my me spent at Halo Design Interiors, I met with the clients, understood their brief and their desire to create big eﬀects with minimal disrup on to their opera on. From researching their brand and also the idea upon which their restaurant was based on, I came up with several con‐ cepts for their interiors to make bold changes. To draw more customers in, I decided that more drama was required espe‐ cially in the ground floor entrance hall. During my me on this project, I liaised directly with clients and suppliers, I designed bespoke items, produced drawings, sourced materials, products, designed signage and branding and quota ons. I also organised the purchase, manufacture, delivery and fi ng of many such items. Branding is also a large part of their name, and as such the clients wanted a new set of op ons for gi s and hampers. I worked on this to produce diﬀerent branding op ons and produced samples, and cos ng.
