Enterprise Project

Last year, as part of our course we had to start our own business, ours was called "Aurora" and here is the look book of the jackets we created. We made 6 Jackets in total, 22 canvas bags and 12 t-shirts. (Sorry if it looks pixelated it wasn't originally like it, I can only find the low quality file on my computer)

Open publication - Free publishing
The parts I was involved in, was the Jacket design, print design, print placement, screen printing, construction and I took the photographs along with Daniel Chesterton from www.phcimages.com, I also designed and created the whole look book on indesign :)

Past Projects

These are 2 very old projects but I still love the outcome.

This one I didn't make anything for I just did the photoshoot.







The next project, I made the cape and the print design (plus I knitted the scarf!). It was inspired by climate and the beach.

Logo

So I've been playing around with a logo of "Sarah Jane", I found the perfect font which you can now see in my header above, along with the QR code, which has some how managed to add a box around itself, going to have to sort that out!

Anyway back to the original subject, logo. Here it is, what do you think? It is the letters SJ but the other way round, I was going for an elegant look, I was also trying to make it look like it relates back to the text.

Hand In and Designer Presentation

Ok so it was last Friday, 2nd December 2011, so I am posting this a bit late, sorry.

So this was the day that this topic was all over, it was the day that we got to hand all our work in and start a fresh, and for some people it was such a relief. I have to say I was one of those people, not that I was bored with it, it was more I was ready to let go, start fresh and move onto something new (mostly my dissertation *snore*).

I woke up feeling surprisingly chirpy considering I'd only had 20 minutes sleep, which totaled up to a whole hour in the last 72 hours. When arriving at university and fighting with the printers to get my presentation boards off, the tiredness started to kick in, but fortunately for me but probably not for my body I had a cheap version of Redbull on hand to keep me going. We set up the studio, I set up the camera (Canon 1D Mark 2N) so we were already for Charlotte's arrival. About 30 minutes later after a lot of form filling on all of our behalf (hand in rec…

Inspiration search

So today I went in search for some inspiration and after looking into a bit more I worked out I didn't have to go as far a way from home as what I'd first thought. It turns out that there is a Japanese Garden only a five minute cycle round the corner from me, so I stocked up on food goodies and filled my rucksack with paper, crayons, scissors, other stationary and a camera and off I went.


The garden was small but it had more than plenty to look at I spent the first half hour photographing everything in detail, it doesn't matter how trivial it is, inspiration can come from anywhere! After that I started taking rubbings from various tree's, stones, walls, and fences. Then I moved on to taken stippets of each flower or plant that I liked so that I can press them in my flower press when I get home. At the end I took a few more photographs and even climbed up a wall so I could get to the roof of a little shelter that was built there, I took a rubbing from the roof as well a…

Designer Visit

Charlotte Taylor the designer arrived at 10:30am today, much to my disappointment. It wasn't that I didn't want to meet her, I just wasn't ready. I'd been looking forward to her visit since the start of the project but with major home complications I'd fell severely behind. After a quick two minute chat with the teacher, I had five hours to pull myself together and get something even slightly worthy of Charlotte seeing.

Charlotte isn't scary, she immediately put everyone at ease, she's not intimidating like you would expect most fashion designer to be, in fact she's actually rather lovely.

Anyway... I'm a bit of a perfectionist so having to present my work, which isn't anywhere near my usual standard to a complete stranger who is an amazing designer was very daunting; not to mention the rest of my group being able to see what I'd done, or more to the point what I'd NOT done. So off to the computer room I went.

First off, was touching up …
