Design Career Ideas
Digital Design Careers
The internet is changing the way everybody thinks about design and also giving designers a lot of new career opportunities. Google and Twitter are just two of the companies who have moved to London's Tech City, which is fast becoming Europe's digital capital.
Product Design Careers
Product design is also huge in the capital with firms such as Nokia, Adidas, Nissan and Samsung have all opened design centres in London. Student shows such as Made in Brunel and Royal College of Art’s Summer Show regularly attract top employers to see the latest ideas of London's product design students.
Your Own Design Business
Many students also become successful entrepreneurs or freelance designers and set up their own businesses, either in London or when they return home. Universities can help you with access to office space, seed funding, business contacts and advice.
