Throughout my year as a designer at this consultancy, I worked on a large number of live projects, from research and concept phases through to CAD and prototyping stages, before preparing products for production. In addition, I was required to put together manufacturing specifications for quotation, liaise with production firms and design products for cost-effective manufacture.
There was a fantastic opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects including medical, commercial, textile and packaging and it was necessary to work with clients closely, to understand their individual aims and wishes and then balance these with project costs and viable manufacturing methods to reach realistic and effective design solutions.
