BSc Product Design
Elgan Jones / Steffan Jones / Jake Lovatt / Tom Mott / Charlie Ross
MOSTYN and the BSc Product Design at Bangor University have collaborated on a design project to create a range of jewellery items for MOSTYN shop.
The work exhibited represent a collection of the student’s work, selected for display. Some of the themes explored by students consider sense of place, eliciting emotional responses and creating playful interactions. Techniques used vary from CNC routing, laser cutting to traditional jewellery and silversmithing techniques.
Experience is vital in any field, and experiences with companies and organisations who are passionate about developing the next generation of designers and creative thinkers are priceless. This collaborate process has challenged Product Design students to consider the values of the gallery, craft and emotional design. It has also created an opportunity to learn and develop new skills, work to exacting tolerances, and allowed students to showcase their designs in a professional arena.
Product Design at Bangor University is 1st in the UK for Student Satisfaction for Design Studies (National Student Survey 2018), and 1st for Design Employability in 2016 for design courses in the UK (The Times Good University Guide). In addition to a range of live project briefs such as this one, students undertake three placements whilst on the course - between 8 and 10 weeks each year, which in combination, builds their professional experiences, and makes the Product Design course unique in the UK.
