Working with Plymouth University

Following the success of Design Storm last year we’ve been continuing to build links with Universities and Colleges. We’ve helped to mentor and inspire students, sharing our knowledge and showcasing exciting projects from across the office, as well as helping to inspire staff by showcasing the students creativity.

We’ve led talks at the V&A as part of Digital Design Weekend, hosted sessions at MozFest, been involved in portfolio feedback sessions and given talks at Universities.

Design challenge

We recently set a data visualisation module for the BA (Hons) Graphic Communication with Typography course at Plymouth University. In a briefing session at their Plymouth studio we set a couple of challenges based on the presentation and communication of weather and climate data.

We’re displaying the students work at the Met Office during the start of June and will be collating some of the responses into a pinterest board, to be released soon.

Looking ahead

Over the next few months we are helping Ravensbourne University on a brief for their Graphic Design course, which will be showcased as part of MozFest this year.

We are also excited to be running Design Storm 2016 as part of the D&AD New Blood Festival, which brings together Universities from around the UK.
