October 2010 – March 2011 (6 months)
whilst at Witcher Crawford, I was approached by By-Plan Associates to take on the role running the graphics department. Working for many developers such as Charles Church, Bloor Homes, Amber Homes and Redrow Homes we produced drawings for planning, construction and CGIs for sales purposes. My role meant I had to produce 3D architectural models and images to illustrate the proposal for client and planning committee presentations although I spent an equal amount of time working up detailed design for various construction details.
