We are always excited to find out to hear from our talented Designing for the Future alumni and find out what they are up to.

Chloe has also joined the Design Together, Live Better project. This new online platform aims to connect citizens (patients, carers, family members, friends or anyone interested in health) with companies and entrepreneurs to co-create new healthcare solutions based on real needs.
2013 runner up Jack Durling has just finished a community arts project with the Aldrich Collection and Balfour Primary School where he worked with 120 primary school children to create a stunning installation of colourful windsocks as part of the Open Houses Festival which runs during Brighton Festival. Jack is about to move into his new studio in Brighton.
Also taking part in the Balfour project was brand new alumnus and second year student Tom Meades (who was was runner up in this year’s competition – more information to follow). Tom ran workshops for 120 children encouraging them to re-design their playgrounds.
2014 winner Martyna Konopka graduates from the University of Brighton this year and will be showcasing her final year work at the Brighton Design Exhibition next week. Her work is a development of her award winning stroke rehabilitation jug.
