Welcome to Design Academy - a week of intensive, inspiring and exciting design tasks, each created to introduce you to different design disciplines in a fun and inventive way.
We developed the idea of the Design Academy after witnessing first-hand how many University students taking a design degree were unsure of exactly which design specialism to focus on.
With the teaching of Design in schools being, understandably, somewhat limited in its scope, we know that many students want a more professional-level taster of a design course before taking the plunge and choosing a specific design degree, and so Design Academy was born.
We believe fundamentally that design is an important career choice - design in all its different forms affects our lives in so many ways: from the phone we use, to the coffee-cup we buy, to the bus we catch to school.
Design Academy's mission is to help the next generation of designers understand a little more about the subject choice they make in a fun and creative environment, and to be fully empowered to make that important decision about their future career.
