Humberstone Academy Design Team visit Greenshires.
Greenshires had the pleasure of a visit from nine members of Humberstone Junior Academy Design Team this week. As part of their Project Based Learning, which is based on 'Design', they have been working with Leicester-based design agency, Ratcliffe Fowler to create their own 'steady-hand' toys. Nine lucky design winners visited the Agency studio in Leicester and spent the morning there learning the ropes and studied such things as perspective drawing, 3D design and even pitching their ideas to prospective clients. As another part of the project, our visitors came to learn about packaging their product, so spent some time with our CAD department, 3D visual designer and saw their box design through to the finished product, going back to school with a printed sample each. The project will finish with a Dragons-Den-style presentation to 'buyers' at John Lewis Department Store.
