What Yvonne’s Tutor Says…

“Yvonne has been chosen as our ‘Student of the Month’ for December based on her submission for the Creative Lighting module and in particular, for the development sketches presented.  Producing development sketches can be a daunting task to many but what Yvonne demonstrates here, is an awareness of space, understanding of the brief and how her design scheme can be enhanced through thorough planning and application of selected features.

In order to get the best out of her lighting and AV scheme, Yvonne has not only looked into the atmosphere she wants to create, but how this will be achievable using the existing building features to make the lighting and AV much more practical and reflective of the client’s needs.  Schematic plans are also a great way to split up the interior spaces to understand how lighting will work in the space, its spread and cones of light produced; schematics don’t just need to be used in order to split up rooms of a space, they can be used effectively to highlight certain design elements.

Yvonne’s sketches showcase fluidity, creative awareness and clear development of intention; something which can be hindered if done on the computer.  Well done once again Yvonne!”
