The Brief, in a summary:

This project was piloted by Hampshire Cultural Trust and the Arts Council England. They invited artists / designers to design a product prototype inspired by artefacts from Jane Austen’s House Museum.

 *The design must be for a luxury item or product range

*Contemporary, yet supportive of the theme of quintessential English artefacts

*The product designs should be commercially driven

*It must be possible to make one prototype of the design within an 8 week period


The Initial Planning:
