Second place students visit Sebastian Conran’s Studio
On Tuesday 25 April we had a visit from the team from Reepham High School & College in Norfolk. The team came second in Design Ventura 2016 with BluPrint, their wooden, laser cut interactive toy with pop out shapes that can be combined in different ways to create imaginative, fun characters.
The judges thought BluPrint was a fun, creative idea which was very well presented and the team had developed a great prototype. To improve the product for sale in the Design Museum shop, the judges suggested that the team could develop their design with other design themes such as architecture or vehicles that may fit in with the Design Museum content.
Their prize was a visit to the Sebastian Conran Associates Studio, to see behind the scenes of a product design studio and to discuss the possible development of their product.
The team then worked with Sally Jones, a Design Museum Educator, to develop the marketing and a point of sale display for their product.
At the end of the day the team had positive ways to take their fantastic idea forward.
Thanks to Marie Favre and David Moseley for giving us their time.
