The following images show a number of telephones from the collection dating from the 1950s to the 2000s.
To begin to build a portfolio:
- Choose one telephone
- Research it and the date around which it was manufactured
- Investigate all areas of consumerism of that time, the type of houses being built, interior architecture, fashion design, car design etc.
- From your research, identify a real or made up person from around that date, and design their full lifestyle
- With emphasis on your chosen art, design or media discipline, decide everything about this person from their telephone outwards to build a complete profile as your portfolio
