To introduce myself, my name is Ellie Carr-Smith. I am currently a freelance Designer/ Artist. I graduated my BA (Hons) Product Design at The University of Edinburgh in 2017.
My aim is to create meaningful objects which highlight alternative materials and manufacturing methods aiming towards more sustainable alternatives for everyday products.
This portfolio presents Art, 3D sculptures and technical industrial design, challenging partitions between art, craft and design.
DESIGN EXHIBITION SCOTLAND
From August 2017 to May 2018, I was part of a new innovative startup design exhibition called, ‘Design Exhibition Scotland.’ This involved being part of a creative collaborative group of established designers, discussing and challenging the existing divides between art, craft and design, for a exhibition which was held central Edinburgh in May.
