Student Work, New Pret-A-Manger concept development sketches

One of the experiences that I feel is so important for my students is the opportunity to take part in live projects with an actual client. Pret-a-Manger contacted us to discuss an opportunity to work with our students and develop a new concept for their flag ship site. During the course, students study a unit called Commercial Design Practice which draws together the main themes which they have been developing throughout their course of study, and which enables them to investigate and research an area of Interior Design in depth which was also relevant to their expected eventual career pathway. Students began with Design Research and conceptual development and investigated into the development of design history from a cultural perspective in conjunction with Market research and consumer trends. Here represent some concept development sketches from one student in the group. Over the next few days you will be able to track this progress - a kind of synopsis of the process which in reality of course took several weeks.

  1. Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
    DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com
    Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
    Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
    Bring out the Y-O-U!
    Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
