Product Design students visited the Berghaus Design Centre to present their interim concepts for trail running, walking shoes. After a tour of the facility, the students presented their work to apparel designer, Margot Gandelin and Footwear designer, Joe O’connell (pictured right) The tour gave students a fantastic insight into Berghaus trend forecasting, design process and garment testing procedures. We look forward to presenting the final designs to the company in early May.
We recently held the 2nd of three mentoring sessions with year 12 and 13 students from The King’s Academy. 3rd year product design students gave help and advice with the development of their college projects. As part of the visit they also had a digital illustration workshop where they learnt how to use PhotoShop as a rendering tool and produced some great work. The next session in early April will see the Kings Academy students bring in their final designs solutions in model form for a final critique.
18 Year 11 and 12 students from Kings Academy joined us last Wednesday as part of a mentoring programme with our 3rd year students. This was the 1st of three visits over the course of the year. The product design students are acting as clients giving support, advice and direction on a range of projects undertaken by the students from Kings. Project briefs include kettles, interior car parts and lighting.
As part of the visit they were also given a flavour of what it is like to be a student at Teesside University during a tour of the University campus by our 2nd year student Ambassadors.

“Illustrating ideas is a core skill for designers, regardless of their discipline. Traditionally this is done on paper either freehand or with drawing aids – rulers, compasses and templates. These drawings are then rendered using markers and pastels.
PhotoShop, which was originally developed for photo editing, has been adopted throughout the design and film industry as an illustration package, due to its powerful array of tools. These tools allow you to apply colour and tone in much the same way as using marker and pencils.”
Having no prior experience with digital illustration and PhotoShop the students produced some excellent work. Below are some examples.
