Home. About Me. Portfolio. Contact.
I studied Graphic Design, 3D Design and Product Design A level’s. During my first year I was given the opportunity to spend a week training and had the experience and insight into the Jaguar/ Land Rover brand. I achieved high level grades which allowed my progression to Northumbria University. My coursework was displayed throughout the college and prospectus to be handed out to the general public. I was awarded a prize for outstanding student in the area of Product Design. During my stay at Carmel I developed good relationships with my peers and lecturer’s.
Portfolio. Key Skills
Hello, My name is Thomas Jolley and I am a Transportation Designer from the University of Northumbria.
At the moment I have just completed my first year of Transportation Design (BA) Hons Degree course at Northumbria University. I have developed key skills which will contribute to my success in the design industry.

For a personal experience within the automotive firm Jaguar/ Land Rover, I was given the task of creating my own dreams. Thinking out side the box and team-building skills to finally be led onto a full size 1:1 Scale clay model. I could have all full control over, design to my personal taste and have it re-assigned to Head of Design within Jaguar, Ian Callum. I used backtracking of my deep thoughts which had brought me so far into education. Russian Constructivism, Architecture and philosophical pathways which it’s connection within reality and fiction to balance each line, curvaceous undercut and isometric projection to convey my own beliefs. I began to sketch out what I created and visually referenced my own three dimensional C.A.D model as well being taught how to create the same level of standards in Photoshop. For the last years of High-school I had a placement within the design industry. I looked at motoring manufacturers across the country and was accepted at Bentley Motors LTD. Working alongside the designers it soon became clear that the passion and expressionism of each individual artist displayed within their own field was incredible. I managed to collect not only every other perspective on how they viewed their own work and techniques, but an insight into their own personal and emotional path from the start of their career to where they are now.
LEXUS Design Awards 2014 Curiosity.
Through The LOOKING GLASS
The idea of interacting with holograms or projected images is the next level in technology is quite daunting . Yet by using products such as leap motion which uses senseros to digitally detect the users hands to communicate with a computer program. Thie interactee can have full control over the computer enhancing the fourth dimension and five senses. The Leap motion device can be placed iinto most devices and can even control movement within an automobile. This could broaden the driving experience, which could include driving the actual automobile, increasing speed, turning anfd braking.
“Two finely balanced concepts are central to our philosophy and inherent in every one of out automobiles leading edge and finesse”
What is curiosity? Definition of curiosity. Pronounced; cu·ri·os·i·ty (kyr-s-t)
Is the Intuitive to course ones opportunity or personal interest. It is not only a method in which the human mind has choice to overpower, but is an instinct we all follow, as if we didn’t choose to follow eachother, our minds would simply wonder of what we missed out on that particular opportunity. When we think of the word curiosity, we think to ask the question. Why? Why are we interested in what others may see or miss? Curiousity is complex, it is investigation, rubbernecking, spying, escape, freedom, restraint and nosiness.
Through all the possible images of curiosity we could portray, I am going to follow into the wierd world of glancing behind the looking glass A telescope closely referred to as a spy glass, is an optical device which uses light to refract an image, which helps the human eye to view far away objects in a close range. An example of this could be at the end of a pier of a beach. As one person would view the horizon with just their eyes, if one where to use a telescope they could evaluate and recieve information in the distance whilst most other passers by would again miss the opportunity to view the scenery.
Black & white This idea is based around the concept of selective colour displacement through travel. As the driver and passengers enter a new area of the any country they are first greeted with a post noir landscape, with red highlights so that the driver can see the oncoming dangers. As soon as the driver has passed a certain area, the landscape they passed behind them bleeds into colour. They can return to the original location and as they pass through they will be able to view the environment in colour. This spurs the driver on to become more curious about their surroundings.
Selective looking glass This idea is based around the Alice In Wonderland “Through the looking glass” which has been brought to this day. As the driver or passengers are travelling to a specific destination or just want to query a building, landscape or they are curious of a specific landmark. They can simply point towards the landmark and the area which they highlight. A projection on the windscreen will give directions, important information and even if they have an appointment, business meeting or future booking, the information can be displayed and editied so that the driver is notified.

Augmented reality is a virtual representation on top of a real live image. Computer generated axis and sensor allows information to be processed ontop of the real image for the user to read or display to aid them in certain situations. for example if a user wishes to view a wearable GPS on the move and have real time functionality, the software will minipulate their reality. This will in turn guide them to their selected destination without the need to use a paper map. The advantages of this technology can elp designers scan two-dimensional images and then physically minipulate the object in three dimensions.

The automotive industry in one of the most needed nesseseties that we own. But with the upside of having faster travel, there are many consiquesnces which we will have to face. With the increasing population and increasing need to power every electrical product we own we have had to sacrifice millions of tonnes of fossil fuels. Oil, which is then pased on and treated to be plastics, fuel and other bi-products, which is burned to create electricity. But in the mean time we are doing more harm by wasting and throwing away unwanted items. On the motorways and roads that we use, there is one remaining problem which we still remain to face. The overhead lamps which are powered by elctricity, illuminate the roads and motorways at night so we can get from A to B at later times. With the Average street light producing 131 kw per year and there are 7.5 million lights, that means a total of 110mw are used. That is enough energy fro half a power station alone, wasted just on the streets when no one is around. With the Chinese buying a car every 2.3 seconds and an overall 38,000 cars each day bought, there is no wonder by 2030 that all the natural resources found in the earth will nearly be completely used up. And in 2025, The road network will cover the whole of the british isles twenty times over. This is a pretty big worry as the amount of congestion on the roads will have dramatically increased. This will inevitably take over all the natural beauty which has been cherished through time, all to be wasted on automobiles which we will struggle to fuel, and becoming depleated. What can we do to solve this problem? What if we bring the countryside to the roads, we take a natural living and breathing plant, its anatomy and use, and breaking its structure down to the bare skeletal matter. From this we can form a artificial natural environment which will help conserve for a greener world.
Our main problem is we have a higher demand for energy for the billions
there is not enough natural resources to turn to.
Flexible solar cells
Carbon fibre poles
Flexible solar light cells retain the suns energy within a certain size. They will e ble to flexible with the most vicious of air pressure. They will be placed on each side of the semi-permiable skin, meaning that when the module waves backwards and then forwards, there will be a constant absorbence of light. When the sun has passed and the light has receided, they will still produce light energy through the flashing of passing automobiles.
Carbon fibre is one of the hardest materials for the automobile industry, and it is very rare that it is used due to the amount of economy and high ratio of automobiles bought. But when used in small quantaties, it is more affordable. When suspended within material and operated by a mechanical rotation of smaller rods on a gear, when retracted will bend and flex and become a less linear product. This makes it a certanty for module, as it will create as much energy possible, with the least amount of friction.
With phosphorescent pigments woven and died into polyester, it can make for a ultra-lightweight material, that can act as a semi-permiable skin managable to warp and minipulate to any shape possible. During the day it will absorb light energy, then throughout the 7-8 hours of darkness will light up the highway with more efficiency and brightness than the standard sulphurburning street lamp.
The year is 2025 and most of the earth’s natural resources have nearlyy dried up. What the government has done has replaced all personal transport with publicised transportation, saving energy and all waste is recycled or reused.
If this bio inspired battery can power a car with the the same conbustatbility as petrol, but much cleaner and can last over three times longer than a lithium battery which we may find in a conventional phone.
The coffee cup as a inanimate object which we all take for granted. It is a beautiful object, it is compact, easy to hold and take from place to place. We usually throw away the cup and either recycle or some nowadays are reused over and over again. If for example every person in the world has a coffee cup, by 2025 there will be over Seven billion people. If the coffee cup where to symbolise a fuel cell, as a power source and we could recharge them at the work place, at home or on public transport. We can use biological batteries which can run off specific enzymes and can be engineered to run off glucose. Glucose is one of the primary enzymes which the human body uses to power the muscles and generally keep the general body in good health.
All rural buildings are revitalised with bio-plastics, All roads in and out of the major cities are green and ecologically natural.
All Personal vehicles, Trains and inner city transport has been replaced with a mega bus service in which every citizen pays for the service with their own personal source of energy.
Over nighty one percent of all civilisation live in an urban environment. The other percentile are keeping a farming ritual which conversates most of the natural food produce.
We rely on personal devices which help us communicate to one another but all congregate in large groups for more intimate time.
On a much bigger scale, this coffee cup can be a running power source which can power the transport which we may alternatively travel on to go the the shops, to a place of work or to the other end of the country, this fuel cell can be placed and run the transport, and all the consumer has to do is to recycle the waste glucose water and replace it with glucose
Oxygen O2 Enzyme
Water H2O Technology:
Most personal products have been re-designed to be taken apart and rebuilt instead of recycling.
The government has given the go ahead for more greaner nuclear energy and all coal running power stations have been discontinued.
Bio-plastics are being used for new products on the market and all previous depreviating materials are being refined for fuel.
As most transport is within the public sector we find greener ways to get from A to B. Cycling and human powered car are more popular.
The year is 2025 and most of the earth’s natural resources have nearly dried up. What we face is iminent failure of living and all life as we know has been placed into living and working quarters. All waste is either used as fuel or recycled.
= Carbon Dioxide
Human waste and other sewage is placed into the inferstructure of the living capsules.The compartment in which we find the anode, we find a fuel which has been oxidized by the micro-organisms, once the chemical energy has been transferred there are bi-products which have been produced. CO2 and the electron’s and proton’s. The electrons which are then directed to the cathode through an electric circuit which is found on other parts of the fuel cell. The proton’s are directly transferred through the membrane, also to the cathode. When both have started to collect onto the cathode, combining and forming pure H2O, also known as water. The mediators are typically used are natural living tissues such as Thionine, which is a group of small protein which are only existant in higher plants. Other catalysts used are bio-enginered around platations, such as herbicides, connective tissues and humic organic matter.
The air has become contaminated and is hard to breathe without the correct apperatus. Most of the plants and the trees are artificially grown inside and do not have the same physical properties.
Most personal products have been made by mostly themselves, creating their own technology.
All civillisation are reliant on the same transport as we have seen for the past twenty years, but all engines have had to be refined to run on waste produce.
The government has stopped all access to exiting the living quarters. the environment outside is too dangerous. They cannot control the public.
All civilisation lives in a confined modules and to go outside and live elsewhere you must have the correct commision from the government, which has also nerly become redundant.
All fuel is created with waste and by-produce of foods and human resources. Bacteria growth is creating health problems.
We rely on intimate conservations which does not give one person space. The over population means that all ethnic groups have to abide by one religion and one government.
There are little places for time alone and moods amoung the civilisations are detering. People can move to other module residences.

With this we can see that the bacteria driven fuel cells are going to be used more frequently within industry. Not only are they using natural resources which are renewable, the bi-products which are released are just pure water and nothing else. This would make it the ideal solution to petrol and diesel aswell as hybrid engined vehicles as they produce upto 1.5watts per meter squared of electrode surface area. This means that if a thousand fuel cells are used in a small one seater vehicle, upto 15 kilowatts are produced and stored within the fuel cells. This means it will happily produce around 15hp and will power the vehicle for more than 10 hours at reasonable speeds.
Main body & Wheel hubs.
The body which the bus is manufactured, is with bio-degradable plastics, which after its long life can be taken apart and completely submerged in soil and synthetic liquids, which just leave a liquid. This liquid can be simply washed away with the rain.
Tyres & Hubless wheel
The Hubless wheel can be dismantled and sent through the same degrading processes as the main body. The tyres on the other hand can be frozen and ground into dust. This dust can then be reused to form new road serfaces and new tyres for the bus.
Once all the solution has given out its minimum capacity of electrical energy, it can be poured out and filtered to become a carbonated drink, as carbon dioxide is also a by-product, along with pure water. It can be poured out while in motion, and refilled. The waste water can be treated on the bus to create clean drinking and usuable water for all.
All the waste from the journey, can be efficiently desposed of and transported to a local treatment plantation, where the waste can be mixed with biological enzymes, which when in contact produce small amounts of electricity, which can power the bus stations and roads with light.
Door Hatch & Glass.
The door, opening mechanism, electronics and glass cover all can be recycled and repaired for the next module to be produced. The glass if broken, can simply be melted down and shaped, to make more glass covers and bottles for consumption whilst on the journey.
All the electrical components can be repaired and then stripped to leave bare metal, which can be used in other furnashings, and the plastic which also can be ground down and reused as more plastics for future products.
Main body & Lid
The cup module and lid can be recycled, as It has been formed using bio-degradable plastics and synthetic, semi-permiable plastics which can help the control of how muh energy output is needed. This means that when the module has passed its life span, it can be degraded into soil or specififc solutions which quickly degrade and wash away, withiout causing unessacery wastage.
The bio-battery components aswell as the LED Lighting and wiring loom, can be taken part and new parts can be fitted to upgrade, improve and prolong the usability life of the product. As they are coated in plastics, they can be stripped and upcycled to create other plastic products.
