MA work

My final project at the RCA focused on the heritage and craft elements of traditional menswear footwear design and engineering as well as original inspiration from the idea of workwear and the documentary works of photographer Irvin Penn. This project is a continuation and extension of my first year’s work, which looked at visual language within footwear. A significant amount of inspiration was also gathered from my current occupation as a Firefighter for the London Fire Brigade.

This project is a continuation and extension of my first year’s work, which looked at visual language within footwear. All these subjects are ideas that I wish to take forward within my future practice as a footwear designer and craftsman.
