Innovation Design Engineering Royal College of Art 2009
Creative Technologist, TBWA\Digital Arts Network
Jessi studied for an Engineering degree at Cambridge University, although upon leaving school she was torn as to whether she should pursue studies in engineering or art and design; finding a degree course that mixed the two was somewhat tricky. Having always wanted to work in a field that unites artistic creativity and science and technology, with a firm engineering background Jessi applied for the Innovation Design Engineering course at the Royal College of Art to finally combine her technical training with her love for art and design.
The Royal Commission's foundations in promoting brilliant design through uniting engineering and creativity inspired and facilitated Jessi to truly become a blend of the two. She now works for global brand agency TBWA creating innovative experiences for brands; she works particularly in the interaction design of installations and experiences that fuse the physical and the digital. She also consults for start-ups based in London on the use of emerging technology in user experience design.
MA Industrial Design, University of Northumbria 2009
Consultant Analyst, PA Consulting Group
Ryan achieved distinction in MA Industrial Design at Northumbria University's School of Design. His final project, ‘Look with Curious Eyes’, explored how we find, frame and explore the problem/opportunity space in design. Using design ethnography and design thinking, his work specialised in getting designers out of the studio and into environments where people’s needs are not being met.
Ryan received a BSc in Product Design & Innovation from Strathclyde University, graduating in 2009. After a short spell in Beijing as a consultant, and a small role at Hoover, he was awarded the studentship to attend MA Industrial Design at Northumbria. The award allowed Ryan to concentrate all his efforts on his studies and excel with distinction for every module of the degree. His work and experience framing problems and opportunities allowed him to move in to consulting with PA Consulting Group, working primarily on technology & innovation.
