My work has been featured on the creative focus website that is run through The University of Central Lancashire. http://uclancreativefocus.com/outstanding-ma-student-work-design-student-lucy-wright/ .Its always great to see my work on other websites although I did notice a spelling mistake on this one which is unfortunate.
I have had so much fun writing this blog and sharing my ideas/designs and gaining feedback from my readers. For those reasons I decided to enter it in to the blog awards 2015. I have entered in two different categories Digital and Technology and Most Innovative. If you have the time and don’t mind please could you vote for me, if not don’t worry I really appreciate you reading my blog.
The voting links to the two categories are:
I entered a design competition in conjunction with Design students UK. The brief was to design a product for the brand Lowdi. They produce wireless speakers and were looking for other ideas to represent their brand. After my research that I had done on sustainable energy I decided to create a small wireless speaker that runs on solar power. The product is small and easy to carry and does not rely on a power source.
Just thought that I would share my work with you from the Getty Images Website. Its a great honour to be featured on there even if I don’t sell anything.http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/Search/Search.aspx?assettype=image&family=creative&artist=Lucy+Wright+Photography
I received my results for my MA Design course and my Lighting project, I passed with a distinction. I wanted to thank all my followers for their support and great ideas about sustainable lighting solutions. I will carry on to share my thoughts about lighting and design on this blog because it is a fascinating subject that I am hooked on. The next steps include looking for a job and researching the possibility of PHD funding as I would like to take my ideas and thoughts further.
Thanks again for all your help and support
When I started research for this project, one of the first things that I did was to take photographs and document all the different types of public lighting that I could find. I then got hit by the photography bug and it became a hobby of mine. I started a photography blog to share my work http://lucysinspirationalstuff.wordpress.com/. I also set up an online shop selling my photographs on products for example bags and cushions http://www.redbubble.com/people/lucy2104. I also joined The Royal Photographic Society http://www.rps.org/member/profile/lucy-wright
I got feedback about my website from design professionals over the summer and the commented that I should put a photography section on this website and create another website that shows both my design and photography work http://www.lucywrightdesigns.com/. I included my contact information and a contact form on my new website in the hope of getting some creative work. I received an email via my website from Getty Images. It took a while to realise that it was actually a genuine email but Getty Images want to feature my work in one of their collections. This is a huge honour from a worldwide renown company and not something that I could have expected to achieve when I first began to take photographs of street lighting.
I entered some of my designs to the Noise festival website a few months ago. I have just received an email saying that all the work has been judged and ribbons have been offered. I signed in and checked my portfolio on there and my kinetically powered bus stop design has been awarded an excellent ribbon and will feature on the showcase.http://noisefestival.com/user/lucy2104/work/kinetically-powered-bus-stop .Its great to have been noticed, especially as there was over 5000 entries.
