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.
This week we had a very special guest delivering a Wednesday Lecture
Helen Hughes graduated in 1997 from Teesside University with a BA(hons) Design Marketing degree and we have kept in touch with Helen and her career ever since.
She has worked for
Field Packaging as a designer
Wrap (Waste & Resources Action Programme) which is an independent not-for-profit company as a Project Manager and Packaging Design Advisor in the retail innovation team where she helped brands and FMCG owners deliver against sustainability targets
She is currently the Sustainability Strategist at Design Bridge, London
Helen’s talk was both inspiring and eyeopening around the subject of sustainability within design – a subject important to all of us.
