Bailey OMalley

Statement

A twenty four year old spatial designer. Australian born and native; currently working as an Interior Design, Prop and Styling Assistant. My recent projects speak to a neglected area in design; designing for vulnerable and approaching space with a dignity for all people in society. Social issues take forefront in the development of my ideas and sustainability has underlined every brief I've undertaken since my Foundation in Architecture. UWE's Interior Design program introduced me to a range of different ways to communicate abstract ideas visually, leading me to becoming deeply interested in graphics and digital illustration. As well, I've learnt to manipulate mood and emotion through space, with a particular interest in creative direction and set design.

Workspace

Drawing inspiration from places of worships as spaces that are known for their ability to bring people of different backgrounds but common interests working together. These places have impact in contemplation, insight, comfort, focus and inspiration resulting in the formation of meaningful ideas. https://baileyomalley.wixsite.com/really/papiershelf
