“The UK’s design industry is one of the most established in the world. In the UK, businesses where design is integral to operations are twice as likely to have developed new products and services. Successful UK businesses and iconic brands such as Virgin, Jaguar Land Rover, O2, Dyson, and Diageo all regard design as essential to innovation and market expansion.” — Arts Council England.
We sat down with Jamie Billing, designer, innovator and Programme Leader on our BA (Hons) Product Design & Innovation programme, to talk design evolution, why the college’s facilities are so crucial and what to expect from his graduates.
