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.

Lowdi Design Competition

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.

I received an email to say that my design has been shortlisted and sent to the company in Amsterdam for further judging. I will let you know how I get on.

Getty Images Part Two

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.


MA Design Results

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


Getty Images

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 I also set up an online shop selling my photographs on products for example bags and cushions I also joined The Royal Photographic Society

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 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.


The Noise Festival 2014 Showcase

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. .Its great to have been noticed, especially as there was over 5000 entries.
