"Can’t get a job without experience, can’t get experience without a job."
With this in mind, we set out to facilitate design students with a fluid transition into the creative industry, designing a platform for industry based learning and authentic, real-world experiences.
The experience connects students and industry, initiating relationships and providing insight. It works by connecting one studio and one student for one week, where the student is provided a desk in the heart of the studio environment.
During this experience, students can continue their university work as well as engage with studio processes and activities. As studio desk space is often rare, we designed a flexible, foldable, portable cardboard desk as an enabler.
