2013 - 2014

Gold Award

Duke of Edinburgh

I enjoyed DofE as it tested my mental and physical capabilities. It taught me to understand the importance of responsibility, organisation and making sure I am at the correct location at the right time. Creating and presenting the final presentation to different age groups tested my presentation skills and I feel it has made me more comfortable talking in front of large groups.

2011 - 2012

Co-Oproduct Upcycling

Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven, Netherlands

The brief was up-cycling and three of my group’s design ideas were presented at the exhibition. They were also featured on the Co-Oproduct website and gained quite a lot of interest. A proud moment within the first few months of starting at university.

Sept 2012

Bicycle safe storage

Lock-It-Safe Design Project

Two of the design proposals my colleague and I presented were chosen to be developed by this manufacturer. As time has progressed we have now streamlined our designs by combining the design elements into one cohesive product and are continuing with the design development and are in discussions with the manufacturer still with an aim to progress to production in the near future
