Our 12-month placement

We like to give you the opportunity to contribute to real projects and get involved in the whole development process from user studies through to client liaison.
Overseen by a mentor from the design team, your daily tasks will include brainstorming, sketching, 3D CAD, graphic layout, model making, rendering and presenting. We’re looking for someone with a flair for identifying and solving problems who can come up with perspectives that others might miss and to tell the story in a compelling way. You’ll have good attention to detail and enjoy justifying your design decisions.
