A team from Design Engine today participated in the Festival of the Creative and Digital Industries organised by the Southern Universities Network (SUN). The event aimed to provide students with the opportunity to gain a hands-on, interactive experience with a local creative and digital employer for the day. A number of employers were tasked with giving the students a practical brief, reflecting the work within their businesses but also providing context on the world of the creative and digital industries and the opportunities available to students.
We were very impressed by the enthusiasm and engagement of pupils from Mountbatten School, Romsey, who grappled with a live architecture brief which saw them learning a range of new skills including sketching and model-making. The winning team were presented with copies of our book Building Stories.
