All of the work undertaken by students on this degree course is grounded in research. A couple of weeks back the third year students (and tutors) went up to London together to visit exhibitions, and students used the time to undertake primary observational research on their chosen final project brands. First stop was the Future Home exhibition at the Design Museum, and we were fortunate to visit during the time of a temporary luxury pop up exhibition entitled; The Luxury Cave’. Both exhibitions, albeit different, allowed students to make connections to the world we live in today and their own brand based research and the environments in which they operate. A great day, and a touch of social combined, everyone came home happy (but tired)!
