Insight school is built on strong relationships with market players. We offer companies different avenues of involvement – each with different benefits.
1. Commercial project
Insight Our "Project partnerships are all about sharing our Diploma students' energy, passion and creativity for your prospective projects.
Once your specifications and requirements have been defined, a group of 7 to 15 students use the school to propose the best solution possible.
Supervised by a lead teacher and professional designers, students will creatively problem solve and find innivative and market driven proposals.
Projects can be of different lengths:
Projects are available between October and June and delivered by Diploma students.
Students deliver full design proposals complete with market and trend surveys, concepts, materials proposals, 2D and 3D drawings and renders (see student work/commercial projects). Our partnerships are based on our expertise in the different design professions (interior design, graphic design, product design).
In any case, a contract of transfer of copyright is signed between the partner and the school.
