Another chance to see the Product Design Showreel that was on show at the New Designers Exhibition in London July 2012. The showreel showcases the work of our graduates from 2012. The exhibiton was a great opportunity for our students to get their work in front of 100’s of professionals from the design and manufacturing industries. This year’s final year students will be presenting there from the 3rd – 6th July. The exhibition is held at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.

Arcade Games Project is Ergonomically Sound

Full size test- rigs were made in the workshops

1st year Product Design students at Teesside University recently enjoyed a very challenging group project to design an ergonomically sound Arcade Game for the Future. Students carried out research into existing games, anthropometric and ergonomic data, and built their own test-rigs and models to make sure their designs were completely viable for all audiences. Students selected a team leader for their groups and everyone got a job that suited their skills. The results were a resounding success and  demonstrated how enthusiastically students had risen to the challenge of not only designing but prototyping and testing their ideas out on real people. Well done to all!

Adam a budding musician designed, for his major project, a ‘smart’ guitar that helps beginners to learn to play .

Product Design graduate Adam Allport has recently secured a 13 week placement with a design company called ‘Loudmark’ in the beautiful city of Prague. Adam applied for the placement through Accentuate. Accentuate is funded by the EU to provide placements in Europe for currently unemployed (or under employed) graduates based in the NE of England. Each placement is 13 weeks long and is located in one of 3 major cities – Prague, Seville and Cork.

‘The loudmark is a creative agency from Prague manned and directed by Jakub Zagar. The main focus is on unique design experience in the latest trends with the strong accent on client’s current needs.’

Adam has just posted on our Facebook page and although he is only 3 weeks into the placement it looks as though there may be a permanent position at the end of it , which would be great.
