Lydia Ackland-Snow

The spaces I design are quietly expressive. I am primarily concerned with creating an emotive atmosphere through simple shapes and rich textures. I begin with abstract concept sketches, and use sculptural models to draw out ideas. My design process is a continuous stripping away, pulling apart, and refining of my drawings to get to the final design. My whole design process is fuelled by how the spaces will feel,.

My background is in the art department for film and tv, and I would like to use my newly acquired design skills to become an art director. I’d like to

create spaces that clearly convey a rich narrative and evocative atmosphere.
