The grad show

This is the piece that I showcased at the Graduate show 2011, I enjoyed the show, but found it to be less than productive in talking to industry people and creating contacts as there was a mixture of parents, students and industry people. It was not clear as to who was who and I believe that caused some confusion within everybody, but on the whole I think the event was successful and I wish everyone taking part in new blood the best of luck.

I decided to place a culture jam into the show to take away the focus of me as a designer but as a person who believes in design, a person who has the design skill and knowledge to continue to grow and form opinions about design and current issues. I pride myself on being honest and clear and in that want my designs to be the same, I recently had the pleasure of meeting new design people that reinforced the very reason I love to design. It seemed that the course that I was on was overrun with people that want fame, fortune and exclusivity in their career (all the things a design school wants their students to want) but meeting these new people gave me the optimism that there are agency’s and people working in the same or similar style and have similar morals as me and that is completely refreshing.
