UniSA design student Hannah Jordan has not only had her award-winning eyewear design added to the collection of international designer Jono Hennessey Sceats, but she has also been offered a 12 month internship at the company’s head office in Sydney.
“I’m so excited to be given this opportunity” Hannah says.
Hannah will begin her internship in March, where she will work in the head office, visit the warehouse and learn about the manufacturing processes.
“This is a huge opportunity to start a design career for me and I cannot wait to see my design on the shelves for sale.”
Hannah’s art deco design (pictured right) won the 2016 UniSA Eye Candy eyewear design competition, which will be available for in 2017.
“I have always found inspiration from the past in the Art Deco era, modernism and minimalism,” Hannah says.
“My design is based on geometric shapes and gem embellishments in a symmetrical pattern. The fold up design is to give a unique feel to the glasses and makes it more practical when wearing them as a pendant. They’re designed to look good around your neck as well as on your face.”
Hannah will use this opportunity to gain as much industry experience as she can, including the entire design process of design to manufacture.
After her internship, Hannah is hoping to undertake her Masters in design at UniSA.
