Last week the Design Ventura team celebrated the top three shortlisted schools in the Independent and International category.
Duncan Sanders, Head of Trading at the Design Museum and one of this year’s judging panel started the event with handing out the awards.
We are happy to announce the prizes were awarded were:
Portland Place School, London, UK
Astro Caps – Astronomy themed pencil caps
Rangitoto College, Auckland, New Zealand
Coard – folding, portable cardboard stool
WINNER, INDEPENDENT AND INTERNATIONAL CATEGORY
Avago – handy and stylish tool for preparing avacados
Sadly Rangitoto College could not attend as they are based in New Zealand but their certificates and goody bags are winging their way to the team.
After the prize giving Peter Ayres from Beep Studio talked to students about his journey to becoming a designer then lead group in fast paced workshop exploring how they can use drawing to communicate ideas about their products.
Tea and cake made the perfect end of a fun afternoon celebrating great designs.
Well done teams!
