The Design Ventura 2019 winners are Twynham School with their product originally called Design Cubes (now Creative [Un]blocks), a set of dice that help combat creative block. Users roll three dice to create a brief that they have to answer in 60 seconds. This fun and inspiring game was a favourite of the judges.

Twynham School’s design sheets demonstrate how the team generated and developed their ideas. The sheets clearly show the team’s design and prototyping processes and how they planned to address the criteria set out in the design brief, as well as allowing our shortlisting judges to clearly understand the final product design.

The team competed with over 16,000 students taking part in 300 schools across the UK. With their entry, Twynham School earned a place on the shortlist as one of ten schools invited to pitch their ideas to a panel of expert judges at the Design Museum in December 2019. You can watch the video to find out more about what happens at pitching day.

The team made a convincing case for Design Cubes at the pitching event, presenting an engaging pitch and demonstrating clearly how the product fulfilled the design brief and judges criteria. After much deliberation, the judges decided they should be the winners of Design Ventura 2019.
