The End of an Era
So that's it. Uni is finished. I have shown my work at exhibitions. I have graduated. And I will be an intern at Seymourpowell.
The last few months have been hectic, so here are a few of my highlights.
First up was the Made in Brunel exhibition that I have been designing and building alongside the team of students. As the director of this organisation I have learnt so much over the last year, not only to do with the design and running of an exhibition but most crucially how (and how not) to run a team of designers. The amount of work that went into the project was incredible and there were some seriously insane levels of stress that came with organising this on top of doing my studies. However with the best attendance in the last few years, and some great feedback from students, lecturers and professionals, this years show really did stand out.
One of the great experieces of being the Director of Made in Brunel is the sheer amount of practice you get presenting and talking to huge numbers of people. In this pic myself and my Co-Director are doing the final keynote talk at the exhibition. Check out a few more pics of the exhibition here.
The second exhibition is New Designers and this is for the best 20 or so projects from Made in Brunel. The selected students have the privilege of presenting their work alongside all the design universities around the UK and with close to 18,000 guests, it is huge! Take a look at more about our stand here.
And of course the final end to everyones time at University is Graduation. A completely surreal experience which is drenched in tradition but is an appropriate right of passage in life. Wearing strange Harry Potter esque gowns and picking up a piece of paper seems a strange end to 4 years of hard work in the design studios and workshops, and no longer being a student will take some getting used to.
Of course none of this would of happened without the support from all the design students at Brunel so I want to give a massive thank you to everyone who has been a part of the last 4 years at university. Most of whom are in the pic above.
It's now time to enjoy the summer before I start work and kick off my career at the UK's top design consultancy, Seymourpowell.
