How Interior Design Can Affect Emotions During Lockdown & Pictures Worth 1000 Words

In her first self-written brief, Hannah Bourne explored how interior surface design could improve mood during the Covid-19 lockdowns. She created various wallpaper designs using repeat patterns. The work focuses on nature and people, two of the things that were missed the most while the country stayed at home during the pandemic.

During one of her ‘Pick n Mix’ briefs, Bourne was tasked with creating a wordless book. Bourne notes that wordless books can be enjoyed by any age, language, and ability, making them an effective tool for clear storytelling. Her book is based on David Bowie’s Space Oddity as she wanted to replicate the same ‘funky feel’ of the song.
