A ‘Thor’oughly Good Day

Teesside Alumni and Product Design graduate Dan Walker returned today to spend a full day with our Product Design students. In the morning he delivered a sessional Masterclass on sketching, hand rendering, digital illustration and ‘photo bashing’. This was followed by an inspirational talk about his enviable career to date. Dan is an all round product designer whose work has involved both product and automotive design for many of industry’s biggest names but, he has spent the last 10 years heavily immersed, as a concept artist, for the some of the biggest franchises in TV and Film.

After his talk, he spent the afternoon in the studio with our students.
