It was also great to meet up with Design Graduate Richard Turnock who was receiving an industry award. Richard who now works for Multi Packing Solutions as their Senior Construction Designer, graduated from Teesside in 2000. In 1999 he was in the same position as Calum and Lewis winning a Gold in the Starpack Awards. Talk about things going full circle.

Ad ‘Vantage’ Teesside

Tuesday night saw the successful launch of Creative Teesside 2014. The show celebrates the hard work and dedication of final year students in the School of Arts & Media. This year’s show was opened by Product Design Alumni Marek Reichman, Design Director Aston Martin. Marek, pictured with two of his own designs outside the exhibition, was truly impressed with the work on display and commended all the students on their efforts and achievement. The students and graduates appreciated the opportunity to speak to an inspirational Teesside graduate, designer and industry leader.

Another chance to see the Product Design Showreel that was on show at the New Designers Exhibition in London July 2012. The showreel showcases the work of our graduates from 2012. The exhibiton was a great opportunity for our students to get their work in front of 100’s of professionals from the design and manufacturing industries. This year’s final year students will be presenting there from the 3rd – 6th July. The exhibition is held at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.

Arcade Games Project is Ergonomically Sound

Full size test- rigs were made in the workshops

1st year Product Design students at Teesside University recently enjoyed a very challenging group project to design an ergonomically sound Arcade Game for the Future. Students carried out research into existing games, anthropometric and ergonomic data, and built their own test-rigs and models to make sure their designs were completely viable for all audiences. Students selected a team leader for their groups and everyone got a job that suited their skills. The results were a resounding success and  demonstrated how enthusiastically students had risen to the challenge of not only designing but prototyping and testing their ideas out on real people. Well done to all!
