Industry collaborations and ‘live’ projects are an essential part of your educational experience within the Design School. You may, at some point, work on a professional brief, set by an external agency or brand which is ultimately afforded through our reputation and the currency of our courses.

We work with the partner to ensure that the brief not only meets the needs of you, our students, but also the client. Live projects provide an insight and first hand experience of the professional arena; its processes, imperatives, time-scales as well as expected standards of delivery and execution.

In the Design School we firmly believe that your role, as young designers, is not only to service the needs of industry but to also challenge it. Live projects are selected on the basis that they provide us with an excellent opportunity to develop innovative, creative and meaningful answers to problems and opportunities defined by industry.
