As a student at Kangan Institute, I have been able to slowly build up a portfolio with a wide variety of work and displays. During the 18 mouth course, I have been fortunate enough to experience a large variety of different methods and experience with Visual Merchandising.
Here are a couple of samples of my illustration work.
After having drawn or creating an outline, I played around with rendering certain aspects to help make it standout, add texture, as well as making it more life like.
My first styling shoot was based on creating a cookbook cover for a country of our choice.
I chose India, where I then worked on a number of different shots including aerial and cropping, to get my intended image. For my cookbook I was inspired by all the Indian colours and therefore tried to capture it in their spices used everyday.
Balmain Cellar was a group assignment where we worked together as a team, to create a wine shop. Each person made their own wine label and created a display within the store.
All the Interior and exterior was created and designed to a brief, then produced by the students at Kangan Institute.
To gain experience and work with clients, our assignment was to approach two stores and design and install a window display.
Working with a team, we created two very different displays for two very different stores, Moskito Blue and Threads of Nature.
Both displays followed a brief created between the client and ourselves, with frequent visits and checkups; we were able to produce two great displays that left both shop owners very pleased.
