Thinking Big

MDes Poster Exhibition: 29th January 2014

Today Industrial Design finalists (including Product, Transport and Automotive students) held a launch event for the exposition of a term of design research. Students have been working to either ‘think big’ about a particular problem or opportunity to generate an innovative design brief, or they have conducted a range of solution focused design investigations based on a specific design brief. The research conducted by individual students included desk-based research, experiments and empirical research which has been analysed and drawn together within an infographic poster. This informative and graphically dynamic way of distilling and managing data is becoming increasingly relevant in the design profession and made for a colourful and rewarding exhibition.


Design Roots III

The Design Roots exhibition showcases the group work of first year Automotive and Transport students. Students are tasked with producing original sculptures in the two weeks before Christmas that explore the roots of design through a variety of design movements ranging from Arts & Crafts through to Eco-Design. The response to this work has been very favourable within the School of Art & Design, and has also provided an opportunity for visiting prospective students and their parents at Open Days to see the high standard of creativity and model making expected of our applicants.
