Work History

Temp Junior Furniture Designer/ Manufacturer

Cabinet Makers Davenport

August 2012 - December 2012

Worked for John Beswick a self established furniture maker in Greater Manchester. Here I worked along side John designing and producing various pieces of bespoke furniture ranging from gothic bookcases to fully furbished VW campers. This was a very intensive 3 months to the lead up to Christmas. I was put through my paces in the workshop having to meet tight deadlines and work on various projects all at the time. It was good experience for me learning about time management and how to work to a deadline in busy conditions.

At the start of this year I set up my own furniture design business which is based in Cheshire. I have already completed a number of bespoke projects ranging from bookcases, shelving, storage/ TV units, dinning tables, coffee tables, end tables, chairs and stools. More recently I have working with interior designers creating feature walls and specialist furniture like DJ Consuls and modular shelving for clients who are struggling to find the right product for there home or business. As a young designer I am constantly learning new things about the industry, and get excited hearing about new designs and technologies which are at the forefront of the industry.
