Photo: JASON OXENHAM Attention to detail has put upcoming designer Amanda Gore centre stage. The Unitec bachelor of design and visual arts student was awarded a gold pin in the student category for best spatial design at last year's Designer Institute of New Zealand's Best Awards. Miss Gore says she feels extremely honoured. I have followed the awards for a few years and to have one of my designs recognised is something that I have wanted to achieve since I began my degree,'' the 24-year-old says. I was hoping my work would be of a standard to be recognised as a finalist. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and always pay careful attention to the finer details which can really make or break a design proposal.'' Miss Gore says building up a story that focuses on connecting everything is what helped create her winning set design, entitled Amid the Shadows. The concept is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning stage pro- duction Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley and everything in the design has relevance she says. I was inspired by the intensity of the play, the emotions of which were heightened due to the regimented nature of a Catholic school in the 1960s. I attempted to convey certainty and uncertainty through the use of light. Certainty is clarity and what is known. Uncer- tainty, or doubt, is what lies in the shadows.'' The Westmere resident has just completed her second year of study, majoring in interior design, and hopes to combine this hands-on creativity with her initial qualifi- cation in property development. Ultimately I would like to incor- porate the skills I have acquired from both my property and design degrees and work as a project man- ager at an architecture firm,'' she says. Spatial judges convener Andrew Tu'inukuafe says Miss Gore's entry stood out because it stimulated all the senses. The presentation boards for this entry were very evocative and moody. It was quite unique.'' The Creative Spaces design direc- tor says one of the five judges commented that it conveyed a magi- cal quality that drew you in and left you wanting to see the production. The general comment was strong simple elements, where small changes have a big effect.'' Massey University students Amy Miller, Amy Potter, Katie Bevin and Emma Jepson also picked up gold awards for their spatial design con- cepts Unitec graduate Rachael Lovelace picked up a silver award for her interior design work for Mt Eden bar The Ginger Minx.
