Welcome to studio life
A weekend workshop, in a commercial studio, with some of the region’s most respected design industry professionals. It’ll be a challenge — a deep dive into the creative and interpersonal skills you need to succeed in a design studio. We’ll show you how we rapidly develop concepts for clients and help you to sell your ideas. We’ll do this with a project scenario, five teams and some real pressure. To better prepare you for what design businesses need. Places are free, but limited to 20.
In a real agency
Delivered by industry experts
About the workshop
Who is this for?
This is for design students and junior designers. You need to be 18 or over to take part. We’re looking for a group of people, from different design disciplines, who want some extra industry experience.
What will it cost?
There is no fee for this workshop. You need to cover you own travel and accommodation and commit your time for the whole weekend.
Why should I take part?
We believe this weekend experience will give you an advantage in your career as someone who is better prepared for studio life. It also offers you the chance to make industry contacts.
What can I expect?
You’ll be working in teams, each led by a Creative/Design Director. Saturday will be about exploring the problem and generating ideas. Sunday will be about refining, visualising and presenting the ideas.
What will I be designing?
This is not a test of your technical or executional skills in a specific design discipline. It is about creative thinking, design process, team working and exceeding client expectations – which are needed in all design studios.
What will be provided?
We will provide refreshments and lunch on both days. There will be WiFi, shared computers and plenty of pens and paper.
What do I need to bring?
Just bring yourself and your commitment. You are welcome to bring your own laptop and notebooks, but it’s not a requirement.
What if I missed out?
The deadline for applications is Friday 21st April 2017. This is the first werkhouse event and we hope it will lead to more in the future. When you apply you can opt-in for future communications from us.
