Name of Degree Show Student 1: Lia Pritchard

Critique /comment on the development of ideas and concepts in this work: 

I was impressed at the illustrations Lia had created for her designs, it has a very unique style and I feel was very on trend.


How successfully are the materials and techniques used to convey the concepts?
The plastic used in this space creates a very minimalist style. I feel less is definitely more for the this project and this is captured exceptionally through her space.

What is it about this exhibition that most impresses you?
I am impressed at the diversity it has in comparison to the other designers in the show. I like the way the space has been used, very original and refreshing.

Briefly evaluate the presentation style of the work:
I love how Lia composed her space in such a contemporary . Edgy, modern and a very fresh idea.

Name of Degree Show Student 2: Georgia Reece

Critique /comment on the development of ideas and concepts in this work:

I feel the dark colours against the light walls worked really well and the space was very eye catching and sofiticated.

How successfully are the materials and techniques used to convey the concepts?
I think the use of digital printing worked really well in addition to some of the hand printed designs. The colours were very dark and she used a technique which I feel would could have unpredictable outcomes, although I feel it worked beautifully and I admire her courage to take risks. 

What is it about this exhibition that most impresses you?
As well as the positioning of the chair, I think Georgia displayed her samples so gracefully and made such great use of her space. I feel she executed her final show so well and without showing a lot of stress (impressive).

Briefly evaluate the presentation style of the work
It was very elegant and I like the simplicity of the display, well done!!

How do you perceive the shows, generally?

I was very inspired by seeing all the other designers work and felt very motivated in regaurded to my next project. It was useful to hear from the third years what we should expect in our third year and definitely good practise for us. I am really honoured to have assisted such brilliant work.
