Mad about well thought out problem-solving design. Inspiration is drawn from a love of great outdoors leading to products that don't leave behind what wasn't intended to be left by nature. Love coffee, beer and cycling running jumping and general silliness.

using a favourite disposable coffee cup design to test if an alternative opening would avoid the need for a separate lid. It does! :-)

however it would prevent the cup from being stackable.

I am hoping that the smash able concertina design will allow for easy storage in the coffee shop.

My first Vlog

click on the URL link and it does take you through to the video of Kristen and myself planning our brief.

we chose messenger as a way of communicating as we were both working hard but away from uni.


Just a little thing I did to have a break, and warm up to writing Essays.
A story was written for my nephew.

Have a great Holiday.

The build of my Photoshop image...Did it days ago but technical problems have held up the upload.


My fully rendered Cad image.
I'm really pleased with what I have self-taught.
My personal targets for this project, becoming comfortable and navigating around adobe suit and a cad program ( Fusion 360) have far exceeded what I first hoped.
I am pleased with the results of my photographed image and then how I manipulated it in Photoshop, to add context.
the tools I have learnt to use in cad will stand me in good stead for future design projects and add a different perspective and widen my manufacture and material usage.
I have also achieved the target of working with different professionals within the university to achieve goals.
Ben has helped with my Fusion learning, and Antony and Pete have both helped massively with stretching my knowledge taught by Nick.
Also, i have generally improved my digital resilience, for example, the general lack of swearing at the plotter was massively reduced.
and in the main working successfully between different apps and programs.
All this I consider a massive achievement considering I was asking for the on switch last October in year one.


Rendering pod frame.
to do this I have had to find a stock image using google, then change the image in photoshop to import it in.
there must be an easier way than this? homework .


Getting there!
reworking the base/stand, worked.

pleased that I've had the opportunity to redo this model as I've proved to myself that with use, speed on the software is coming...this will help in future projects and when I'm working with cad over Xmas at jewellers.

I'm really enjoying using the software, this is important to me! because it was an aspect of the degree I was looking forward to mastering, I can see the benefits in conjunction with quick modelling.

if I had had these skills at the start of the project I can see how the project could have been better, and gone more smoothly and worked through problems of build much more smoothly and with fewer material resources.


Only one thing for it! start again
