In all the excitement of New Designers I forgot to post my degree show pictures! SORRY! Here you go! Leon didn't want to leave! He thinks he's the luckest boy in the world to have mummys interactive wallpapers in his bedroom!
My time at Cleveland College of Art has been a fantastic experience one i will greatly miss, I've spent so long at CCAD studying a Graphic Design ND, Foundation BTec and finally my BA in Textiles and Surface Design.
It has been hard work juggling a full time degree and a 5 year old, but it has been worth every tear and headache.
The support from my Mum and Step Dad has been amazing, none of this would have been possible without them. My son Leon has been a huge influence on my work and will continue to be for many years to come.
During my degree i have met some very talented individuals, with various areas of speciality's, the overall standard of work produced has been amazing, so I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS to everyone!
The support from the tutor's and staff has been second to none, I want to say a special thanks to Claire Baker, who has been an amazing tutor and inspiration and also Ann our adopted uni mother who has listened to our endless whingeing and helped massivly with research!
When I decided to start designing interactive children's wallpaper's, I never realised that I would have to learn to wire up lights, connect plugs and make sure a wallpaper design didn't burn a house down! I have had a great amount of fun designing this collection, it has been a roller coaster of emotions but if I could, I would do it again in a heart beat. I really hope that one day my interactive designs will be used to help stimulate children with disabilities. So without further a do here are my degree show pictures!
I am also pleased to announce, that i have been chosen to exhibit my work at New Designers in London, and I hope to see you there!
