As part of my degree course, I took a year off to go out and work in the Design Industry.
After several rounds of interviews, I was offered a position working with both the Deodorants Packaging team and the Open Innovation team.
As part of the in-house design team, I worked on projects involving agencies on front end design, ensuring the outputs aligned with the brand DNAs of Lynx, Dove and Sure, through to back-end CAD, developing both surface model of new designs and technical CAD ofheavily engineered parts ready to be sent to tool makers and moulders.
