Product Design student wins national competition

Final year Product Design student, Nick Forrester, has won a major national design competition.

The Alexander Rose UK Outdoor Student Design Competition aims to encourage young designers to take up careers in the outdoor leisure industry. Now in its third year the competition offers cash prizes to students as well as the opportunity for student’s creative work to be seen by a range of worldwide industry giants.

Many former entrants to this prestigious competition have seen their designs put into full production, and one design was even recently seen on Channel 4’s Grand Designs programme!

Nick’s winning design has earned him a £1000 cash prize, as well as an exhibition at SOLEX (Summer Outdoor Living Competition) at the NEC in July.  Plus, if his design goes into manufacture he’ll be able to enter a royalty agreement with the company!

Product Design course leader, David Henley, told us: “We are delighted that Nick has won this prestigious national design competition with unanimous agreement from the judges. This high level of work showcases the excellent knowledge and skills that the course prepares the students for their future careers in the design industry.”
