Annabel Meade's Problem Solving Experience:
ITSU Piccadilly London. I was asked by the owner to design the new store. I was working with a team of builders and two clients including the owner. I wanted to design an internally illuminated 15m long, central table. As a team we solved problems of heat build up, maximum length of material without being a hazard, how to piece the lengths together without seeing the joint and inter-changing the smallest tube lights possible for replacement.
I found I needed to buy a PC to install fiancial trading industry software not available for the Mac. I only had one internet connection but 2 computers. I found out how to network my PC through my Mac using a USB hub.
I was asked to design an exhibition unit to appear at Madame Tussauds in New York. The design had to be cheaply built, dismantable to fit into a lift appature, have access for disabled and able to stand freely. The design was to hold a wax works figure, advertising banner for accompanying film release, sound, lighting and for the visitor to have a photo taken with the figure. came up with a good, workable solution which I then drew up full working drawings on CAD. I had 4 days to design and detail before the drawings were taken over to New York and construction started immediately.
