This brief should attract students who have a particular interest in materials and industrial manufacturing processes and who are stimulated by seeking creative responses which exploit the characteristics and properties associated with specific methods of manufacturing. It is an opportunity to research and build knowledge of a more technical nature, akin to industrial design.
The client is an established company, Crompton Mouldings, based in Brighouse, Leeds http://www.cromptonmouldings. co.uk
The precise detail of the client’s brief is to be confirmed but you can anticipate the company wishing to break into new markets with new clients seeking to develop innovative concepts which exploit the Crompton’s existing materials and manufacturing processes. There are opportunities for the company to expand its existing portfolio and to enhance its profile of products beyond its established but largely technical/ performance and engineering sectors.
