Hi, my name is Jade and I am a Brisbane-based interior design graduate from Billy Blue College of Design. Since beginning my studies I have continuously strived to go above and beyond the requirements of a brief to accelerate my skills in such a short amount of time. This quest for knowledge has led me to continue my studies, beginning a Bachelor in Commercial Design this trimester.
Through my recent studies, I have developed the practical skills needed to successfully apply my creativity and attention to detail to numerous design briefs, including commercial and residential applications. I am particularly interested in commercial design and would love to apply my skills to such projects in a real world scenario.
I have experience with concept development, mood boards and hand renders but have excelled at 3D modelling, rendering and technical drawings. I hope to find a place where I can utilise my skills and further my knowledge through experienced mentors within the industry.
I am really keen to apply my skills within the industry and am looking for any opportunity to get my foot in the door. Feel free to contact me with any questions or request a copy of my digital portfolio.
Sokyo Restaurant, 345 George St, Sydney
The proposed business at 345 George St, Sydney is a fully functioning restaurant bar that operates from 11am until late daily. The location will see the surrounding office workers being the main clientele, servicing many work lunches and meetings as well as after work drinks on Friday evenings.
The client wants a space that is cohesive with the new development of the Barrack St pedestrian zone. They also want it to be new, edgy and fresh; a look that resonates with the innovative dishes and cocktails they will be serving on the menu. They want to see urban influences from Japan, Berlin & New York, as well as something that is uniquely Sydney.
The Cheese Pleaser, Brisbane, Queensland
Following the opening of the new development of Howard Smith Wharves, our clients, The Cheese Pleaser, were looking to expand their business. Currently a retail and takeaway business, they have secured a position that will work as a restaurant, bar & takeaway service.
The main objective for the client was to create a space that could transition from day to night and compete with the upscale competition in the area on busy weekends.
The solution we developed for the client used their new location to enhance their existing business model. By still offering takeaway options, customers could enjoy picnic baskets on the Howard Smith Wharves grounds, taking advantage of daytime foot traffic while offering gourmet dining on site as well.
The design aesthetic is sophisticated and chic to compete with existing business in the area while still incorporating a touch of traditional European influences, staying true to the client’s branding.
