Last week 2nd Year Product Design students presented their final concept proposals to Ebac as part of a ‘live’ brief ‘ with the North East, design and manufacturing company. Senior Designer Engineer and Teesside Alumni , Clyde Pittaway, was delighted with the high standard of the presentations and the level of technical detailing. The company are now reviewing the proposals.
Thank you to David Fox for a fascinating insight into the world of furniture design. Our 2nd year Product students are looking forward to working on a brief set by David along with his support and knowledge.
Last week saw the return of four graduates from 2015. It was great to welcome back David Johnson, Martin Elerts, Lui Zatrak and Stephen Mounser . On the morning they delivered a joint presentation to students across design about their time at Teesside, friendships and their careers to date.
In the afternoon they spent time in the studio with our current 3rd year giving some really good advice and industry insights.
Thanks again to the ‘class of 2015’ until the next time.
Final year Product Design students Billy McFaull and Ben Muir have been selected for an award in the Student Starpack 2019 competition ran by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
They are now invited to the awards ceremony in London at the IOM3 Headquarters on the 26th June.
Great achievement and good luck to both.
