Lord Design and bringing student projects to life...

Students and professionals working together

The Product Design department at the University of Northampton aims to offer the students the chance of seeing their ideas actually made as much as possible. As a result, after the second-year Product Design students carried a conceptual design work for a lighting design client, this was given to Lord Design, a design studio based in the University's Innovation Centre, to develop for manufacture. The students were then invited to visit the Lord Design to see progress.

The company principal David Lord also gave a well-received key-note lecture to students during the Subject Futures Week in January 2016. Besides that, Lord Design also employs two graduates from the Product Design course at the University of Northampton.
