BSc Product Design

Jack Pretlove

I find fulfilment in every stage of the design process, from initial conception to the final stages of manufacturing, with the initial conceptual phase of the process is my favourite section. I am passionate about improving our world through design. I aim to be on the edge of innovation by integrating eco-friendly measures into my ideas.

Recreational skiing is a sport that is growing exponentially. Casual skiers are on the rise, as more people are attracted to the sport. With this growth comes new opportunities for designers.

The Snowcat 30L, from Snowcat Packs, is a 30-litre day resort skiing backpack developed to organise and improve accessibility of your gear while on the slopes. It balances comfort, weight and versatility with enough storage space for all the gear a family of casual skiers would need. It is made for organisation, the storage space is split into three main compartments, allowing the user to carefully pack the bag and know where all their items are.

Versatile, waterproof and durable, the Snowcat 30L will perform in many environments and with is robust design, should outlive many of its competitors.


The fine dining industry has grown exponentially in the last decade with multiple restaurants contributing to the global hospitality market. Fine dining focuses predominantly on romantic meals, which can be remembered by the food, service and ambience created at these venues. The carefully considered ambience of high end restaurants is what separates these establishments from their competitors. The HIKARI is a high end Japanese table light, inspired by traditional Japanese carpentry with no adhesive or glue attachments. The design of the HIKARI has been meticulously considered in every aspect, to enhance the intimate dining experience. The HIKARI was designed and developed in correspondence with ROKA, a Japanese fusion restaurant in London
