Completed one dissertation in final year: a controversial discussion in favour of product obsolescence. This project received a First class grade and further developed my research and analytical skills.

Also completed a major project: this was a self-directed project exploring product longevity concerning child development. This was an accumulation of the skills acquired through my previous studies. The resulting product was an innovative baby-changing bag which was exhibited at New Designers in London and the Reveal Graduate Show in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
