Product Design undergraduate Tim Spears is currently interning as an online design editor at designboom in Milan. Reading (and contributing to) digital design journals/forums is fast becoming a daily activity for most creative professionals, but what happens behind the scenes?

Students in their first year of Interior Design were taken on a guided tour of local craft-makers Sitting Firm this month.

Timur-Bozca-young-designer-of-year

Recent Coventry graduate Timur Bozca has been crowned Young Designer of the Year in the 2015 ShowBoats Design Awards for his project Cauta (beating 33 other entries).

In the judges’ opinion, his design was “unique in its Dynarig sail plan, which, in combination with what was considered to be a very proficient, forward-looking exterior design, created an accomplished yacht of striking appearance.”

Congratulations Timur!
