I found out last night that I was selected for the Design Alliance Mentoring scheme. This is the opportunity to participate in a live design project mentored by local design consultancies AV Browne, Frank, Slater, Tandem, Hamill Bosket Dempsey & McCadden Creative.
A bunch of us from my class were chosen and we will work in groups for the three weeks in between semester one and two. We will be given a design brief and meet with the mentoring design company once a week. This is a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to starting the project in the new year. The winning team gets their work printed by W&G Baird, a visit to Donald Murray’s paper mill in Scotland and recognised at a prize giving in February.
