Gareth Lloyd

"I would encourage anyone who is interested in this field of post-graduate study to do the MA, as I feel it has helped me personally to define and achieve the goals I have set out for myself as a designer"

Keira Gwynn

3797.jpg Swansea College of Art graduate Keira Gwyn started her studies with UWTSD on the BA Product Design course. Her final year project opened doors for her after displaying her work at the National Maritime Museum in Swansea and New Designers showcase in London. R82 a company that specialises in high quality aids for children and teenagers with special needs liked what they saw and encouraged Keira to undertake further study. In conjunction with her MA Product Design programme Keira is living in Denmark and undertaking an internship with the company.

"I cannot believe I'm actually here, developing my idea into product reality."
"The programme gave me opportunities to find myself and explore my potential, culminating in me gaining an internship with R82. They were interested in taking my undergraduate project further, which resulted in me undertaking further research during my Master's degree to demonstrate a definite need and consolidate the design features."

"The past two years (studying) have been like a whirlwind, with trepidation and excitement, and now I'm pushing the project to manufacture for a global launch. Product Design is one of those disciplines where you can visualise and create your imagination; there is no better feeling than seeing your outcome putting a smile on someone's face."
