KLC 2011 Graduate Show

Yes, I’m back and although my last blog post featured the wonderful work of Natasha McLenahan what I didn’t tell you about was all the other wonderful work featured and presented at this years show.
I can completely relate to Natasha in terms of the open learning course as a fellow student. I started the course a few years ago and having suffered a few unforeseen set-backs it’s true that sometimes you can go off your own personal schedule. 

Having attended the show there was one group of students which were the clear winners this year – THE OPEN LEARNING STUDENTS. In addition to this years ‘Student of the Year’ Natasha, there was another student that caught my beady eye – EMMA DIFFEY

From concept to sample board Emma really shone through for me. I adored her attention-to-detail and use of colour.

It is clear that you don’t have to sit in a classroom to get the full teaching knowledge for this course and that you can produce – with hard work, dedication and a good design eye, great quality work.


At the show some of the certificate student-graduates caught my eye too. I was really drawn to Julia Schoenbrunn’s work.

This was a live residential project which formed the final project for the certificate in interior design qualification. I loved her attention-to-detail and the amount of work which went into this project. You can clearly see that a lot of thought went into this design.

This blended-learning student also got my thumbs up – Daniel Rossouw. You can see above that Daniel has a strong talent for design and creating a welcoming, warm space.
