A BIT ABOUT ME
My name is Daisy Hart, I am broad-minded but I can also put my designs in perspective. That’s the kind of designer I am! The most important thing for me about designing is, that it is based on an underlying essence. The story needs to be correct from the beginning to the end, the design needs to breathe its vision, or at least I think it should.
I think the function, form and logistics of the design are just as important as the user, experience and the feeling you get. The influence of the design.
My strength is not in volatile ideas, every part of the design needs to be derivative from the essence of the design and it’s never by itself. Designing is like exercising for me, a way to free my thoughts and find motivation to move on, whatever is on my mind.
Last year I went to Australia for my internship. My time in Melbourne can be seen as a milestone in the ambition to become an architect. Because of my own commitment and perseverance, I managed to get it done. Because of this, I dare to push my limits in facing challenges. I am very dedicated to make the most of myself.
Through the years I found out what the effect of a design can have on people, the surroundings or society. I find it inspiring to learn from others, especially how other people think about designing, and what methods they use. This way I keep broadening my vision on the world.
My fascination is very diverse. I am interested in geometric modern designs but I’m also fascinated by nature and its strength. That’s why bio-mimicry is so interesting for me. Primitive and simplicity but also futuristic, ideology and innovation are the things I admire. I like to visualize my dreams and put it into realization. It’s very important for me to give meaning to the designs. What also fascinates me is the city structures. Hidden laneways, a layer of a social and cultural network.
The methods I use for designing are tailor made and may differ from time to time. Depending on the subject and situation. I can focus myself on a more analytic way or just start creating lead by intuition. During each step of the process I keep verifying the assumptions I made before. I also believe that the creative process and research can be executed at the same time during the whole process of designing, to keep discovering new things. I am not afraid to put aside methods that I used in the past and try new ones, but I always keep my focus on the essence of the design.
During my study I acquired certain skills; these skills are obtained by lectures and projects at school, and by several internships.
- The first one shows my level of creativity and visual craftsmanship, that’s where I focused on during my bachelor.
- The second and third are sketching and ability to create 3d models.
- The fourth is photography. On this subject I followed multiple seminars to obtain basic knowledge on photography the focus was on lighting and several functions of the camera.
- The bolt and nut icon is for detailing, during my internships and during college I made a lot of detail drawings an example of a detail drawing is shown on the next page.
- The cursor icon is for AutoCAD or Arkey, I used Arkey during my internship at HenE. I regularly used AutoCAD for my projects at school and my internship at FOLK.
- The stretched block is for sketchup, wich I also use regularly. In a workshop I used it together with a render program called Podium.
- I created this complete portfolio with Indesign I like to work with this particular adobe software, this is also applicable for Photoshop. I trained it myself, at my last internship i used it even more.
- The last icon is Illustrator, I visited a fiew seminars on this particular software.
