Conversations On Design is an annual guest lecture series, presenting industry insight from prominent creative professionals to our Product Design students at Nottingham Trent University. Between March and June 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, this became a student-led IGTV series with ten episodes. In each episode, a designer speaks honestly to camera from their home studio, answering student questions on their career, their current work and situation.

The Product Design Online Degree Show 2020 celebrates the outstanding work of final year students from BA (Hons) Product Design, BSc (Hons) Product Design and BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design courses. This will launch on Friday 19 June on their NTU Design Industries website, and can be experienced through a curated virtual exhibition, design process films, digital course brochures and individual student profiles. Between 19 – 26 June there are a number of public events scheduled, more information can be found here.

For any questions about this event, please contact Dr Rebecca Gamble, Senior Lecturer in Product Design.
