intro. A new idea for London to alleviate traffic by renting out small cheap cars.

It works within the confines of the city only and runs on electric power.

They can be run on a specific route to help the flow of traffic when tourists visit.

They can be easily rented and dropped off like a “Boris Bike”.

The MINI brand was chosen as it is quintessentially British and works as an icon within the city...

jcdesign portfolio2032 Ford Hot Rod

The majority of my design course has been based on sketching and ideation. I had only touched on clay modelling very briefly with the abstract head. I therefore decided to do an automotive model in my own time to gain a deeper understanding of modelling and to seal my decision that clay was what I wanted to do...

Davis Three Wheeler Aero Model jcdesign portfolio

During a aerodynamic project I was tasked with making the foam model to put into the wind tunnel. It was important to achieve the correct scale and shape to mimic the car I was basing it on (Davis Three Wheeler) as close as possible! The model and the test-ing were a success...


Another project that I did whilst I was at school was to design and build a clock that would hang on the outside of my fathers office. I made the mock up out of wood. Then once a position and size had been decided upon, I made a computer model and had the clock lazer cut from steel and powder coated.

Amherst aston martin

A classic marque that is associated with the original 4.5 litre Bentley Blower which featured as James Bond’s original car in Ian Flemmings books. Taking the brand and the name, myself and a group of my col-leagues were asked by the new owners of the brand to design a new luxurious car based on the Aston Martin DB11. I was the clay modeller as well as penning a few design ideas...

N.B. This is currently an ongoing project and is halfway through construction of the model.
