  • 3. Global Issue | Primary Food Source for Endagered Giant Panda Is Threatened by Growing Agriculture Human Activities. Inspiration Image | Chris Jordan Concept Design Development | Global Industrial Design - Packaging for Awareness ID 3 of 15 Bamboo Habitat is a simple yet beautifully crafted soap bar holder was inspired by artist Chris Jordan. My design intent of this product is to do right by Chris Jordan, bringing awareness to a global issue without contributing to the accumulating waste on Earth. Just as Chris Jordan incorporates ‘Visual Metaphors’ into his pieces, this packaging brings awareness to the endangered Giant Panda. It consists of an abstract image of a panda which depicts 26 to 83 pounds of bamboo, the amount a panda requires daily for energy. These animals, like many others, need awareness and help to survive. I am hopeful that with creative, informative and reusable packages, such as Bamboo Habitat, the cry for awareness and help will be heard, reducing the waste we produce on Earth and protecting our environment’s living things.

  • 6. Final Product | 1017 Sans Souci Road Model The 1017 Sans Souci Road model construction project is an example of the knowledge that I acquired at BCIT during the Interior Construction and Renovation course. The purpose of this assignment was to demonstrate an understanding of the fundamentals and stages in residential wood frame construction. Individually, each week our assignments were to research and complete one portion of the construction of this model. This assignment has proven to be incredibly beneficial in my industry related work as it has given me the ability to understand and anticipate on-site construction details and methods.

  • 7. Materials Sustainable Initiatives | Government Project - BC Department of Natural Resources ID 7 of 15 Essentials. This project was a wonderful learning experience and I am determined to incorporate the essence of what the project represents in all my future designs. The purpose of this assignment was to research and better understand the basis of designing for the environment. Through sustainable initiatives, embodied energy, and life cycle analysis, my partner, Amanda Weirsma and I, were to design a natural resource and energy efficient building. We chose a concept that best represented our client as well as our own core beliefs; Essentials. Contrasting with the buildings surrounding it, this earth-friendly space reverberates nature through its earth-friendly materials; including those that make up the base building elements, ceiling features, millwork, furnishings, and finishes as well as through its structure and design. Inspired by the simplicity of nature and the philosophies of Bio Philia, Designers Amanda McGinn and Nathalie Carter from ReGrowth, transform this empty shell into a happy and comfortable environment that enhances productivity and creativity. Warm reclaimed hardwood flooring and curved wood ceiling panels throughout the space contrast the natural wool carpeting. Earth- friendly walls and ceiling paints are seen throughout the space with accents of recycled glass tile features. Clay paint plasters and living walls; create better air quality and emphasize inspiration of nature. Creating a natural and earth-friendly environment for staff enhances productivity and encourages originality without causing unnecessary harm to the environment.

  • 10. ID 10 of 15 Rendered 3D Perspective | Reception Area with Adjacent Dance Studio Heartbeat. This academic project design is my favourite project and it is a representation of the knowledge I have accumulated throughout my BCIT Interior Design program. Individually, we were to research the project location, Phoenix AZ, as well as our local dance studios, incorporating the important details and requirements into our projects. This project was submitted as one large construction package c/w 3D drawings, imagery, and materials. In searching for what connects varied types if dance, one finds a pulse. A pulse defines that we are really living, giving way to a variety of movements. Our hearts feel a beat in music and we are moved to create the emotions that we hear. Movement is personal. To create a comfortable atmosphere for this individuality, this space reflects an eclectic feel. It is full of history, life, and uniqueness. This is seen in the materials; wood, stone, ceramic, glass, metal, and bucolic fabrics. One can find line, rhythm, and colour throughout this space. Words to describe the feel of the materials and furniture used within this space could include: vintage, industrial, weathered, and rustic.

The purpose of this project was to design a display seating for a specific retail store. This project was done individually, each of us picking our designated stores from a hat. In my mind, this toy store would only sell the most classic and timeless of toys and so it was named “Little Classics”. My inspiration came in the form of a semi- trailer truck character called, “Packer” from the children’s television series, “Bob the Builder.” This display seating is made up of three parts; the ‘pickup box’, ‘driver cab’, and ‘front bumper’ area. Through my research of beneficial functions in seating within retail stores, I decided to utilize all vertical and horizontal real-estate for display, also incorporating comfortable seating for both child and parent. The pickup box holds 17 display cases, each with its own light source that is controlled from the ‘driver cab’ storage area as well as from the retail store’s main power switch. These display cases have a perimeter of banquet seating. The ‘front bumper’ is focused around the horizontal town play area. It is surrounded by seating that is designed to be kneeled on by children while playing with the interactive display. As this is a playful environment, the millwork finishes are bright, easy to maintain, and have no harmful emissions. We were to create millwork drawings that include plans, elevations, sections, details, and specifications.

  • 13. Accessory Design | Residential Project - Suite 1718 Toss Cushion Artwork ID 13 of 15 Final Product | The Fox Toss(Above) within the Space(Below)Design Implementation | This sewing pattern design incorporates a field fabric and an accent fabric. The field fabric makes up the neutral coloured front frame, flange, and back cover. The accent fabric is inset into the front cover. Fabrics were ironed, measured, pinned, and cut. Seams were sewn and corners were poked. These accessories were designed for a client living in an apartment on The Drive in East Vancouver. This suite was spacious, full of natural light, and was furnished with a mix of new and used mid-century modern and eclectic pieces. The owner of this home was a young woman with a big heart, fostering animals regularly and seeming to gravitate towards pieces that had sentimental value. Do The Fox Toss. My client appreciated how each item contrasted beautifully with one another and how together they told their own unique story. My goal was to incorporate modern colour and pattern into the neutral palette while keeping to the personality of the space. I designed the toss cushion sewing pattern to incorporate an accent fabric that would be framed by the field fabric. Design Development | Pattern Fabric Layout Ideas(Above)
  • 14. ID 14 of 15 Design Implementation | Incorporatiing Characteristics of Element Into Each PieceFinal Product | Elements Artwork wiithin the Space Elements. This artwork was inspired by my clients love for the outdoors and her respect for the environment. These pieces are abstract representations of the four primary elements in nature: earth; water; fire; and air. My goal was to incorporate the basic concept of the natural elements, the essentials if I may, into these art pieces by using as little material as possible. The materials included are water-based paint, twine, and cotton cord. The neutral palette and linear texture of the artwork creates a simple contrast with the wall finish that compliments the colourful and unique accents through the space.
