Human-Centred Design

Every year we attend the London Design Festival and this year we will be there again.  We have the train booked, the accommodation sorted and really looking forward to it.  One of the designs we are really excited to see is the 3D printed wheelchair!  Yes, a ‘made to fit’ you wheelchair that brakes the […]

Building Post Brexit

As with most industries in the UK, the construction industry still has presented mixed reports on the impact of Brexit. Will it help to tackle the current skills shortage in the industry?

New Year, New Spaces

Happy New Year.  We hope you have all had a great Christmas break.  We closed the studio over the holidays, which we do every year, to give everyone a proper break.  We are now back and getting ready for a very busy three months ahead. Two of the projects we completed before the Christmas shut-down […]

Stand-out Students

“How work-ready and talented students are at the University of Central Lancashire”. Our Creative Director Bev said, when she returned from judging this year’s DS16 Awards, which celebrates the talent being showcased at the 2016 Degree Shows. It’s always difficult taking time out of the studio. We are so busy all of the time. However […]

Beginner’s Luck

Day 1 What to expect? Where to start? Which exhibits to go to? As a “newbie” in the UK and a little out of my comfort zone in that my career was built on designing and detailing building envelopes in South Africa where there are a total different set of influences and solutions.… I was […]
