Where i work with Sam and Hannah

This series of blog posts takes an insider look at the workspaces of Loughborough Design School’s final year students. Inspired by Design Milk [www.design-milk.com/column/where-i-work] it offers a unique insight into the personalities and lives of our designers.

Name: Sam Walrond

Course: Product Design and Technology BSc

Final Year Project Title: A hydroponic air filtration system.


“When I work in here, I always turn the lights off and then just turn the lamp on. Because it’s like a mental thing and it just focusses me on my desk, and then it draws all my attention there.”


“If I listen to music it distracts me – I’m really easy to distract! So I’ll just wear Beats without any music, just to stop noise. I know I work better when it’s just silent.”

Name: Hannah Revie

Course: Industrial Design and Technology (BA)

Final Year Project Title: Tracking individual progression within non professional Water Polo teams.


“When I’m done with one of the things on my list, I physically move it across. It’s a nice separation. I don’t want it to look like a workspace anymore.”


“I’m a really messy worker, but I’m not a permanent worker. I get quite restless if I’m sat in one place for too long. I lose focus. Even if I’m not working at my desk, I will usually come back to it.”
