Together we made it! Friday saw the class of 2015 graduate in a ceremony held at the Brighton Dome, watched by many proud family members and of course the lecturers and tutors that have seen us through.
And then to the gardens for the ‘compulsory’ photos!
A great day to end a great journey, and now to start the next chapter!
Finally managed to get the promised goodies to our sponsors this week; a framed certificate, photo and a selection of our final year work. The design show wouldn’t have been what is was without them so once again a big thank-you to The Flying Fortress, as well as all those who donated at our fundraisers!
The first of a week of long days! Today was tough on everyone; the load and unload, the guys in the van experiencing the joys of driving in London, we still have a couple parts missing and then the baking heat! However after what’s felt like a long time planning Sussex have made it to New Designers 2015, and have made a good start to putting together the stand.
A bit patchy after the first coat, but nothing to worry about as we’ll have the whole team up there tomorrow bringing it all together! We’ll keep you posted!
One final meet in the design studio to gather all the parts and deliveries together, add some finishing touches to our builds and go over the battle plan! Next stop, London!
With setup for New Designers just around the corner we’ve been preparing the bits and pieces we’ll be taking up there this week. To start with a small team of us got off our desk chairs and headed outside to give the floor tiles (140+ of them no less!) a much needed scrub and power wash. I don’t think any of those involved want to see another floor tile ever again!
The scaffolding for the brochure stand and poster frame we’re constructing also arrived, and was unboxed and put together up in the studio. I must say it’s looking exactly like the CAD model we put together before ordering – we’re getting good at this design malarkey!
Having said that we are missing one of the deliveries of poles! Hopefully it gets found quickly and we all ready to go on Monday! One week to go!
