Final Second year project

It has been a little while since I last posted as I have been busy with lots of uni work. But as I handed my last project of second year in today, I thought I would let you know what I have been up to...

I really enjoyed designing for gift during our live brief with Hallmark, and decided to do it again for our final individual options project.
I chose to design for the female market and chose a 'Craft' theme as my starting point. I looked at work spaces, craft materials, objects, tools and equipment such as sewing machines and typewriters. Below are my final collections of gift wraps, gift bags, cards and tags.

 ... And so the summer begins!

Surface Design for Gift

Our last project was surface design for gift, and was a live brief working with Hallmark. We were given a selection of trends to work with, and everyone produced some amazing work as there was the added pressure of presenting to industry. At the end of the project, we presented our work to Hallmark individually which was slightly nerve racking, but we all received really positive feedback. They were also offering placement opportunities- and I was lucky enough to receive one, which I was very pleased about!

Below are my final collections.
