Where i work with Emma and Dominic
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: Emma Flynn
Course: Industrial Design and Technology BA
Final Year Project Title: Independent activities of daily living device for those living with mild to moderate Dementia.
“It’s an organised mess – I know where everything is on my desk. I’m really into putting things up on the wall as well. I have to organise my time.”
“I got that for my birthday and it’s meant to be a personalised lego person. I have lego everywhere. I got that when I went to Denmark.”
Name: Dominic Hensman
Course: Industrial Design and Technology (BA)
Final Year Project Title: Braille learning aid for the visually impaired.
“I think you’ve got to be organised. So now I can look at that and it’s quite easy to see it like that. It’s quite useful, I think that’s probably the best £8 investment I’ve made this year.”
“I use it maybe once an hour. I’ll fly it for five minutes just to take my eyes off the screen and stop myself getting a headache.”
