Having joined Norwich School in for Sixth Form, Johnny started 3D Design at GCSE level, having studied Design and Technology from Lower 4, and plans to carry 3D through to both AS and A2. His designs include a scaled down model of a opening chair constructed from rings, as well as a telescopic bridge design, which was part of an 'Enhancing a Location' project over the River Yare in Norwich.
I've been studying Design since GCSE and I am now in my final year at Norwich School. I hope to study Graphic Design at university in London and I have had offers from Goldsmiths and Kingston so far. I have a keen interest in photography and screen printing, which influences many aspects of my work. My English Literature studies have also inspired much of my recent work based on narratives and book making.
Conceptual designers such as Bruno Munari are of particular interest to me and will hopefully prepare me for the ideas based design courses I have applied to.
A selection of product design and engineering pieces from my portfolio over the last few years, spanning a range of different themes and project titles:
- Articulating bridge for Carrow Road Redevelopment (Particular Environments)
- Desk Lamp inspired by Spinnaker sail of yacht (Natural Forms)
- Table inspired by a concept alloy wheel for Lotus car (Lotus Cars)
I have taken up photography during my final year at Norwich School and have made good progress within the subject and I especially enjoy the individuality of photography. At school I am also studying 3D design and History, both of which have aided me in design inspiration. At university I will be hopefully going to Oxford Brookes and study architecture, with offers being received from Kingston, Liverpool John Moores and Portsmouth.
Since taking up photography at the beginning of my AS year, I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring different ideas and themes and coming up with ideas for photo shoots, while making the most of the fantastic resources that the Norwich School design department has to offer. We get a huge amount of independence regarding our work alongside excellent teaching and guidance in all areas of the subject. Next year I am going to Edinburgh University to read English Literature with Spanish but hope to continue photography as a hobby.
I studied Photography at GCSE and I am currently taking it at AS level. I have enjoyed taking a wide variety of photos, exploring many aspects of photography.
For my recent project I have researched and experimented with abstract work, which has been very interesting.
I hope to study photography further at university which I am looking forward to.
I am currently studying Geography, History and Graphic Design for my AS and I plan to continue these subjects through to next year. I have been studying Graphic Design since GCSE and I have a particular interest in film photography and illustration. I am currently considering whether to study Illustration or Graphic Design at university.
After taking up photography in my AS year, I have enjoyed working with many different aspects of the subject. I am currently studying sports science, photography, biology and music. I am hoping to study music at Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall or Trinity at conservatoire in London.
I am studying Biology and Geography as well as Photography and hope to continue Biology at university studying Genetics, hopefully at Royal Holloway. I try to combine my interests by using biological subjects in some of my photo shoots. I enjoy taking photos as a hobby as well as a school subject. These images were looking into the idea of disguise and shame, whilst the others were looking at the mechanics of the human body.
I am currently studying Geography, Spanish and French alongside Graphic Design, and hope to continue with graphics into my A2 year. Graphic Design has been an enthralling subject, that combines well with my other subjects. At university I would like to read Geography and Spanish, but I feel the skills learned from studying Graphic Design will be perennial.
I am currently in my final year at Norwich School, studying Photography, Classical Civilisation and History of Art. After taking a gap year, I plan to study photography at Northumbria University on their combined Photography and Fine Art Course.
For this project, I explored the theme of Identity, stemming from an installation at art exhibition I saw in Venice last summer. Going to art exhibitions and studying History of Art has helped my photographic work greatly. It means that I have a broader knowledge of photographers and artists thus helping to improve and develop my ideas for my projects.
Matt is a current AS 3D design student at Norwich School. He has a particular interest in geometry and hopes to study Architecture at university.
Sam Ings is a promising young 3D Design student currently studying for his A levels. His love of nature fuels the majority of his designs. Other influences include post-modernist designs of the early 21st century. He hopes to study architecture or furniture design at university.
I am currently taking graphics at AS and I wish to continue it to university level. Before AS, I had never taken graphics before, but I did fine art at GCSE. At Norwich School, the independence for the students regarding our work as well as excellent teaching and guidance in all areas of the subject. The teachers have helped me from scratch and I have improved majorly. I look forward to continuing graphics at a further level.
I have been studying 2D Design since the start of sixth form and I am now in my final year at Norwich School. I currently take Design, History and Geography and am hoping to study Landscape Architecture at University next year.
I have enjoyed developing projects on such themes as Bridges, Venice and Regeneration and I look forward to using Design in the world around me in the future.
Kieron Ordish is currently studying for A-levels, he has been studying since GCSE in which he did design and technology. His designs are inspired by natural forms and intricate structures.
