Cambridge Industrial Design


I decided to take work experience in product design to get a better professional insight into how a design consultancy works and what might occur in the design industry. I found it very interesting and has helped my experience hugely, due to going to real client meeting with the designer and client and seeing what their thoughts are. Cambridge Industrial Design (CID) also allowed me to get more and technical techniques on SolidWorks that has helped me so far at University. My work experience lasted for 7 days, where I worked with the chief designer on designing a new camera tripod for an American photography company.
