Eager young minds
Western Spring College

designworks recently played host to a group of students from Western Springs College in aid of Workchoice Day 2009. Fifteen eager young minds interested in design, descended upon the studio for a morning.

To start with students were given a series of presentations on our practice. Topics included an introduction to brand experience design and what it's like to work in our respective areas: account management, research, design, and the experience of being a fellowship designer.

They were also treated to a studio tour, and participated in a practical session where they developed mood-boards for a new brand of sparkling fruit flavoured water (aimed at teenagers). There were many great ideas in the room hopefully in a few years we will see some of these fresh faces working in the design industry.
