Creative Employability testimonials


"I really enjoyed working with the students from the School of Art & Design and the range of proposals put forward was, in some cases, way beyond my expectations. I ’m sure we’ll repeat this live brief initiative again in the future and I ’m looking forward to seeing the winning sculpture take its place in our new building."  
Andrew Jamieson, Managing Director, Keltruck Ltd

"During 2010 we had several design students at Poundland for work experience. Their positive attitude and knowledge of design has always been of a high standard. They have all been able to rise to the challenge and immerse themselves in the busy in-house studio. They have helped us with our frenetic workload, but it has also given them valuable insights into commercial design, and examples for their portfolio."
Neil Ballard, Head of Packaging and Design,Poundland Limited


"It has been a very positive experience taking students and graduates for work experience and internships over the last two years. The students speak of gaining real – world skills and understanding of the graphic design industry, whilst Design Jazz has gained from fresh input and help with the workload. We look forward to a continuing relationship with the University."
