College Students Realise their Creative Ideas

What is Design? Was the first question posed by our gracious host, Design Director and BPCS parent, Mark Baker. Our visit to Meyer Shircore Architects in Subiaco included a run-down of some of the projects that come out of the offices, some intricacies of software and how it’s used in design as well as taking a product to market.

The students were privileged to hear from design professionals in the fields of Architecture, Interior Design and Product Development. An insight into how the design process operates in the ‘real world’ was a real eye-opener for some. Hearing that the level of detail documented can be down to the type of screw used made us all gasp!

Many subsets of design were covered from building information and modelling through Murray who told us of the importance of getting the design right. Having something go wrong at the building stage could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Deshannon led us through some of her amazing interior design projects and how she works through the creative process. Cameron, who has many years working at Bunnings as a product buyer gave us a presentation on economics through product development. Sharing his knowledge through slick tables and information handouts, gave students a rare look into the inner workings of the corporate world.

Essentially, our aim was to gain more insight into how students can realise their own creative ideas using commercial strategies. While still in the early stages, we can build upon the feedback given to us through a tailored presentation by Mark. His suggestions on how students can implement their own social enterprise gave hope that they can achieve their dreams.
