Hi, I'm
Amy Chappel 


Welcome to amychappelDesign.

I graduated University with a degree in Design for Film, Tv, and Stage from the University of Salford. I am a passionate and driven artist with an unyielding commitment to transforming the world of stage and theatre design. My journey has ignited a deep passion for stage design, fuelled by a desire to create inclusive spaces where everyone can experience the magic of live performances.

My vision goes beyond aesthetics; it's about breaking down barriers and making theatre an all-encompassing platform for expression. My experiences and education have equipped me with a diverse skill set, while I may have limited prior experience in working directly on sets, my creativity and innate problem-solving abilities have consistently enabled me to overcome challenges and deliver innovative solutions.

The heart of my artistic ethos lies in the belief that theatre should be a space where diversity thrives and where each individual feels welcomed, represented, and seen. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of cultures, perspectives, and historical periods, I strive to infuse my designs with a tapestry of voices that resonate with audiences on a profound level.

My strengths as an artist include an innate ability to visualise concepts in unique and captivating ways. From sketching initial ideas to meticulously crafting intricate scale models. My creative soul thrives on the synergy of collaboration, and I am eager to work alongside fellow creatives who share my visions. I aspire to not only craft breathtaking sets but also shape environments that evoke emotions, challenge perceptions, and inspire dialogue.


I have experience spanning from being an art department assistant at BBC's            'Waterloo Road' to working as an Art Director for two separate Graduate Student television projects, as well as helping to organise the Graduate exhibition for my University. These experiences have undoubtedly equipped me with a valuable set of various skills and insights that are not only relevant to the entertainment industry but also highly transferable to various other creative and collaborative fields.


My degree in 'Design for Film, Tv, and Stage' has equipped me with a wide range of skills and knowledge related to visual storytelling and production. Here's a list of my various skills:

Sketching and Rendering: Creating hand-drawn sketches and digital renderings to communicate design concepts to directors, producers, and the production team.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD): Using software like SketchUP Pro 2023 to create detailed technical drawings and plans for constructing sets and locations. And transforming these models into realistic 4D Renderings.

Model Making: Building physical scale models in 1:25 or 1:50 of sets and environments to help visualise the design in 3D.

Adobe Creative Suite:

Adobe Photoshop: Editing and enhancing images, creating textures, and visualising design concepts.
Adobe Illustrator: Designing vector graphics, logos, and other visual elements for sets and Visual props.
Adobe InDesign: Designing layout and promotional materials such as posters, brochures, and production booklets.
Adobe After Effects: Creating motion graphics, visual effects, and animations for on-screen elements.
