Brief: Design and produce a sustainable bag for an identified situation and particular audience. Set By Amanda Lester, Central Saint Martins, London.
I chose to design a camera bag. I designed a light camera bag that you can easily take out with you and which allows you to take pictures in the rain. I figured out a system where you can unzip both sides of the camera bag. Then secure the flaps with the clip provided to hold them in place. Finally, there is an internal hook system that allows you to attach your camera to the bag to secure it from falling. You are able to photograph in the rain while your camera is safely protected in the water resistant material, which is made out of recycled shower curtains.
I am the winner of the national T-shirt contest for Schwinn Bicycle. The objective was to design a shirt to show the pure fun and joy of riding a Schwinn bicycle. This design has a vintage look to capture the history of Schwinn and to commemorate how long they have been around. The typography is hand drawn and inspired by vintage American posters. "it's all about the journey" captures the fun and joy of riding a Schwinn bicycle.
Brief: What is illustration?
I decided to focus on the idea of closure. Closure is focused around comic books, a way of creating scenes and letting the reader use their imagination. Closure allows us to connect two moments and mentally construct a continuous, unified reality.
I called my project “the invisible language” in which I created dice where elements of each die is able to work together as a pair. Depending on where the dice land, the story changes from its sequence or position. My drawings emphasizes the invisible aspect of illustration by showing how illustration represents emotions and feelings.
Brief set by David Preston & Kira Salter, Central Saint Martin's, London: create a set of four postage stamps to be packaged in a presentation pack, that communicates an opinion about British foods.
A group project where the idea of making a passport came to me as a way of showing the connection with the lack of identity and authenticity of Great British Food: it has travelled history and imported food from all over the world and titles them “classic” British dishes.
In life, things aren’t always what they seem to be. Have you ever bought something because the design seemed honest or beneficial? Design can be used as a tool to make you believe. A consumer buys the design rather than the item because they are mesmerized by its persuasive beauty.
Good design sells. You may not notice the role it plays in your life, but design confirms quality, provides confidence and relays trustworthiness. Whether you like it or not, design guides your purchases.
This project focuses on the NEED for consumption and the dialogue that happens between a package and the consumer. The package has to stand out from others and hold the attention of the viewer. For this to occur the package must seduce you to create intrigue and desire. My objective is to persuade you to purchase this medicine to cure your urges and shopping habits, which contradicts the concept it is built around. This project becomes an irony of consumption and at the same time emphasizes how much we have become “pill poppers.”
These different packages promote the consumers desire to buy what we want rather than what we need. You need to become aware of the impact that design has on your life. Are you buying what you want or what you need?
This set of condoms utilizes pictograms to communicate the message.

This package of condoms is provocative and has character, reflecting the work of Andy Warhol. The title of my exhibition is a good fit for the object, it attracts the reader to it’s subject matter.
Andy Warhol was interested in the contrast of black and white in photography and was a huge fan of his own camera. He would base his portraits on the study of a picture. This fun lomography camera is light, edgy and stylish for anyone to bring around with them.

Logos are a reflection of what a company is, they tell a story, give personality and brand to a company by learning and analyzing what they do. The logo becomes an icon that people recognize, they become an artistic and physical experience.
