We visit Dutch Design Week 2017

Read about what the coloured building here

Eindhoven hosts Dutch Design Week every year in October.

It is full of the most exciting and exhilarating ideas surrounding design , sustainability and ways to think and do!

We look forward to it immensely and both staff and 2nd and 3rd year students leave feeling motivated and raring to go!

Here are a few of the exhibits we saw.

and here’s a link to some wonderful images that capture the spirit of the show very successfully

Good Luck Sophie

Good luck to this year’s graduate Sophie Dickinson as she starts her first design studio job in Manchester.
Sophie’s amazing drawing skills and brave use of scale and colour make her an accomplished and skilled designer.
All the very best Sophie.


The experimental sketchbooks from the 1st year are showing fabulous promise.The students are becoming engaged and involved in colour research and development.Now,as they move onto considered design and pattern making,they have an invaluable colour source reference they can refer to and build on in the future.
