2nd year product design students, Stephen Mounser and Martins Elert, had their hard work rewarded at the Creative Conscience Awards 2014. Stephen received a bronze award for his design concept for an artificial coral reef that helps speed up coral growth and aids biodiversity. Martins’ design for portable solar stoves created specifically for use in refugee camps was highly commended.
Last week Martins, along with design tutor Peter Reid, attended the high profile event in London to pick up the awards. Stephen unfortunately could not attend as he is currently working in America.
The awards are judged by eminent people from the design industry such as Sebastian Conran, John Mathers, Ian Callum and Wayne Hemingway to name but a few. So Martins and Peter were in good company.

Martins is currently working on a summer placement at Solo Ti, world leaders in the design, development and manufacture of thermal imaging equipment. This was on the back of a successful ‘live’ project carried out by students for the company during the year as part of the Product Design programme.
