INTRODUCING - THE EMERGING DESIGNERS PROGRAM

A program focused on creativity, collaboration and problem solving.

Twice a year Iceworks Design will be giving three Emerging Designers the opportunity to receive paid industry experience as they undergo an immersive four-week program curated by our team.

The Emerging Designers Team will undertake a production design project mentored by our design and build team. The project will focus on providing the team with experience across the entire scope of commercial production design. From initial brief, concept work ups, research and build methodologies through to construction plans, pricing and presentation.

Our aim is to showcase these Emerging Designers, to support them as they take their first steps into our industry. At the same time, we will be presenting them with challenges to encourage creative thinking, not just about design but collaboration, time management and communication as well. These core skills are fundamental to working in our environment and we want these Emerging Designers to be equipped with the right tools for the job.

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

rESEARCH & CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

The designers start the program by studying the brief developed by the Iceworks Design team. Pulling it apart and breaking it down to research and concept development tasks to solve the brief. They must collaborate, learning the strengths and weaknesses of each other to accurately assess and schedule their time whilst developing a project management methodology for their project.

Designers will work on developing their initial concepts further. The Iceworks team will help assess the concepts and guide The Emerging Designers in a direction that answers the brief.
