    Product Design BANottingham Trent University
     - Nottingham, United Kingdom
    BA Product Design - First Class Honours This course allowed me to both utilise and develop my design skill whilst working on an array of projects. Concepts were developed from the initial stages of research through to the final stages of manufacture. I developed my ideas both independently and collaboratively to produce high-quality outcomes in the form of renders, models, presentations, written work, photography and short films. My passion for high quality design led me to explore the importance of haptic perception in design for my dissertation project. With a particular focus on the link we have with haptics properties and premium quality goods.
