Jessica Deakin

Annotation

“Jessica has demonstrated extensive application of creativity through the development of her design ideas and the creation of the final solution. She utilised a range of cognitive organisers to streamline her design processes including brainstorm, PMI charts and a mood boards. Jessica critically evaluated existing designs to accommodate current trends and then incorporate these into the final design. Her design development and ongoing evaluation demonstrated clear links to the identification of the need, concluding further development was required following research and testing.

Keith Perry

Annotation

“Keith undertook extensive and appropriate design solution testing to ensure the final product achieved the criteria for success. Design development was sequential with each new iteration based upon the results of the previous test. Keith communicated his results clearly and concisely via the use of photographs, CAD and colour coded evaluations. The testing undertaken was appropriate and relevant, in relation to the identification of the need, and the needs of the target market.”

The Chaise Chair

Angus Hallett

Annotation

“Angus describes a range of relevant areas for further investigation, which clearly relate the need for a relaxing and contemporary chair. These are justified by an indication of why the investigation is required, how it will be undertaken and the likely impact upon the final design. Each area provides Angus direction for future research, experimentation and testing. These are evident through the documentation Angus completed of the project’s development and realisation and the final design.”
