Final year Product Design students have been working hard over recent months producing work for their final show which opens on Tuesday 27th May as part of the Creative Teesside Exhbition.
3rd Year student Abigail Holden has won a silver award in the Institute of Materials Student Starpack Competition. The judges said of her design for scissor packaging using only corrogated cardboard :
“Very clever answer to the brief. The fact it is from one net is very impressive. It put a smile on all the judges’ faces. All in all a great concept.”
Abi, pictured here with her 2 dogs, Ruby and Gracie, was delighted with the win and is looking forward to the award evening at the IOM headquarters on the 11th July in London.
Abi’s work will be showcased a week earlier in London at the New Designers 2013 Exhibition.
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!
