Out of the Dark
Jun 2012 - Sep 2012 (3 months)
The majority of my role at this small establishment was heavily based on ideas generation. I worked closely in conjunction with other designers on commissions, involving myself with all aspects of the company, including networking with potential clients. I also designed and made a product range, overseeing the development process from concept to product. My products were on display at Designers Block 2012, London alongside the companies` other pieces. I have since made my first sale as a designer as a result of this, with a small number of them bought for a concept store in Saudi Arabia. I used every aspect of the company that I involved myself with as an opportunity to learn, from such things as collaborating with designers to creating my own product with the company.

Pinewood Shepperton plc
Oct 2006 - Oct 2006
During my time at Pinewood Studios I worked in both the office and the set design department, the more creative side of the company. The insights I got into concepts behind specic sets and construction methods of these were of great interest to me. I also worked closely with the props department, observing how they created pieces that made up the finer detailing of the sets. I hold a great interest in the performing arts and was a member of The Wycombe Swan Youth Theatre as this work experience sparked an interest in design for film and television.
