How does it work?

The creative summer studio offers a range of collaborative services specifically designed to help your business solve creative challenges:

Creative surgeries are a quick way to explore and generate lots of fresh ideas and potential solutions drawing on the University’s multi-disciplinary expertise. A team of skilled, imaginative graduates, supported by an academic expert, will work with you to tackle your problem, breathe new life into your project or unpick, explore and develop your brief in a confidential, no creative boundaries style surgery. The outcomes generated during the session will be documented in a brief report.

  • Format: half day workshop
  • Price: £300

Creative solutions are short projects through which a team of accomplished graduates and academics work together to solve a specific design problem. For example, graphic design projects in areas such as: print, video, web, logo, brand and corporate identity, or product design projects including: 3D CAD modelling and prototyping, product visualisations, interior design and spatial planning. Our one week project process begins with support, to create and define a simple design brief, via a kick-off meeting with our friendly studio team.

  • Format: one week project (including kick-off meeting / consultation)
  • Price: £500 - £1,500 dependent on brief

Creative consultancy is a service for larger-scale research and development projects that require an in-depth approach and more focused skills, expertise and resources. A team of academic-practitioners, supported by talented graduates will work with you over a sustained period to deliver exceptional results, using the latest technologies and resources, at an affordable rate for both local and national clients.

  • Format: typically two to six week projects
