A placement opportunity designing Cunard merchandise for distribution and sale aboard the three ships Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.
I designed and prototyped several pieces of memorabilia including notebook covers, commemorative coins and various other maritime-themed items, which were sent to a manufacturer to be mass produced, and went on to be sold on board the cruise liners.

A short placement working for Jonathan Daifuku, in Barcelona. I worked with CAD and prototyping materials to produce concepts and redesigns to fit in with the companies' current range of hotel lighting, and then helped pitch these ideas to the client.
This included making a functioning prototype with a powerful LED bulb and incorporating a solid glass exterior, altering the design where necessary in order to incorporate bought in pieces, to reduce overall costs.
