Product Design students design a clock for Andy Murray Design.com

On the 30th March, Andy Murray, a well known Glasgow Designer and former student, came into the college to see team presentations from Product Design students for the design of a clock.
It was a 3 week project and the teams were given £5 and a goodie bag of materials. Using the materials in the bag, £5 and the process of laser cutting they had to design and manufacture a wall hanging clock.

Their design had to be able to be posted through a standard letterbox and fit into the range of products on Andy Murray’s website.

Things the teams had to consider were:
Weight
Clever use of materials
Clever use of process
Price

The winner was a semi flexible and fold-able clock.  Andy was very impressed with the results, awarding certificates to the winning team and an Easter egg. The students got a buzz from the experience of working with an outsider designer and gained an insight of what is expected in industry
