  2. 2. Lemmond’s Design & Insite Business Solutions Graphic Designer/ Web Developer Office Fort Mill, SC Square footage: 1,951 To assist Lemmond’s Design & Insite Business Solutions with an expansion into an adjacent space for growth. The design for the Lemmond’s Design and Insite Business Solutions expansion and interior up fit was a collaborative project between myself and another senior classmate. We worked in conjunction with the clients, lighting vendors, contractors, and current workers to create a space that evokes productive and reflects both of the individual business in a combined space. The colors used we inspired by vintage graphic posters and the logo colors for each business. The overall design reflects a modern space with creative organization.
  3. 3. Oceananica Corporate Headquarters Satellite Office Soma District, San Francisco, CA The Reserved Brands Inc. is constructed on core values of environmental and employee appreciation. For the satellite office of Oceananica Products, Reserved Brands wanted to incorporate their core values as well as the product line's purpose and design into the development of the space. Oceananica is an environmentally friendly product that evokes relaxation and ultimate hydration using natural ingredients. The design of the satellite office reflects elements of natural and luxury spa essentials. The layout is conceptually designed from the elements of a traditional Zen garden. The office space incorporates LEED accredited concepts to enhance the workspace for the employees. The overall design of the space is relaxing, luxurious, and tranquil, inspiring both employees and visitors to take a break and embrace the spa quality of Oceananica.

The space embraces the surfer appeal of the area, reflecting a relaxing, barefoot atmosphere. Materials used throughout are reclaimed, recycled, and refurnished. Old surfboards are recycled into interesting displays, shelf ends, and ceiling treatments. The use of recycled glass and plastics are reflected in the custom acrylic “wave”, window display case, and cash wrap. The open atmosphere is further emphasized by the use of a roller door at the rear of the store, allowing multiple entrances and easy access to on the shore surf board rentals.
  5. 5. GO by Target Women’s Clothing Boutique Charlotte, NC The GO International label will bring top apparel trends to Target in between each limited-edition GO International designer collection. The design of the store embraces the variety of each designer by presenting the clothing line as the focal point in the space. The simplicity of the design allows the user to become part of the showcased line by participating in the fashion runway experience. The overall design is inspired by the simple, yet stylish interiors of a fashion show from behind the scenes. Sleek surfaces, vertical draperies, and dramatic lighting embrace the behind the scenes action and further amplifies the design
  6. 6. Cardboard Robot Eccentric Card and Gift shop Charlotte, NC The Cardboard Robot is an eccentric card and gift shop located in Charlotte, NC. The client wanted a design that reflected the creativity of the merchandise and the quirky name of the shop. The overall design was inspired watch mechanisms, reflecting in the display cases, materials, finishes, and layout. There are many direct reflections of gears throughout the space, as well as indirect relations in custom displays. The walls are finished with a lower panel of corrugated metal and an upper panel of cork, to use as a tackable surface. Ionized metal, and the hues reflected, as well as dimpled metal and illuminated acrylic were used to further emulate an industrial, while allowing the merchandise to be the main feature of the space.
  7. 7. The Grind New York Pizzeria and Deli Charlotte, NC The Grind is a New York style kosher deli established in Charlotte. The client wanted this sandwich shop to stand out from the typical lunch time eateries in the area. The menu will consist of fresh pizza, subs, and sandwiches. They want a true New York feel with exposed pipes and concrete. The design of the space is inspired by the NYC subways with exposed arch ways, brick, and various shades of stained concrete.
  8. 8. Mimsy Tapas and Martini Bar Charlotte, NC Mimsy is an inspirational, whimsical Tapas Restaurant. The targeted patrons are young professionals, who are in search of a restaurant that can accommodate client meetings and brief presentations while still providing a non-business, flexible setting. The atmosphere is light and capricious, instilling discovery, flexibility, and playfulness. Overall design uses light, airy colors, natural plant life, and intricate lighting that infuses the atmosphere. Spontaneous sparkle and hidden discoveries offer consistently changing and memorable experiences. The space also proffers technological advanced features that are skillfully incorporated into a more relaxed atmosphere. Each table offers the patrons the opportunity to use advanced technology to order food, as well as present to their clients. The technological advancements are foundations to the space, remaining known but not obvious, creating a unique balance between business and socialization.
  9. 9. Central Community Care Healthy Lifestyle and Medical Facility Saint Stephen, SC The proposed Medical Center located in Saint Stephen, SC concentrates on many of the lifestyle needs that prevail in the area. The medical and healthy lifestyle facility will appeal to medical needs and incorporate the existing recreational department; promoting community participation of all ages. The facility will extend the healthy lifestyle opportunities into educational opportunities. The incorporation of medical and recreational with the opportunities for education affords assistance to the whole community. Being centrally located, and in the town limits, the Medical Center benefits from city security, transportation, and convenience while offering its users the same benefits. The design of the facility is based around the ecosystem of catfish, which the town proudly recognizes annually at the Catfish Festival, which is hosted on the proposed property’s location.
