Lighting Creativity in Portsmouth

Anouk Boetekees – BSc Digital Media

A collaborative project between Anglepoise & students from The University of Portsmouth.

The Portsmouth based company Anglepoise set a live brief for their new 90 Mini Mini desk lamp to students from the University of Portsmouth studying a Digital Photography module in The School of Creative Technologies.

Over the course of the year, students were able to borrow a lamp and photograph this in a location and style of their choosing.

They needed to tell the story of their lamp in the final outcome, and use it as a prop. This could be used in shot to light a person, piece of work, room/table or even outdoors at night. Students were encouraged to be unique and show the product in a different way.


Daniel Rose – BA Digital Marketing

The 90 Mini Mini lamp is powered by USB for enhanced portability, and it’s hyper-flexible: plug it into your laptop, a portable battery, or simply plug it into the wall. Further details can be found at

Ryan Curtis – BA Media and Digital Practice

“It always amazes me the way creative thinkers can dynamically rethink a theme like the modern workspace, and at the same time challenge, probe, excite and entertain your product and brand.” Simon Terry, MD, Anglepoise Ltd
