What our staff and students say
You really do get a lot of one-to-one contact with both the lecturers and clients. I also enjoyed learning new computer programs such as Maya and Adobe Illustrator, and having designers from industry in every week was excellent.Linzi Spiers - Product Design
Great design doesn't happen by chance. It stems from truly understanding the customer, recognising their needs, fully appreciating the importance of aesthetic quality. Not to mention having the skills to create a solution that reflects innovative thinking and embraces the most appropriate materials.Dan Lewis - Award Leader
I had a lot to offer a prospective employer. I started work in the industry straight after graduation and now work as a product designer for Evoke Interactive. It's such a buzz seeing your products come to life and out and onto the high street.Ben Jones - Product Design
