Our Students

"You are always learning. Every member of the team has different skills that have helped me develop mine and I was able to see the work I was doing go from concept right through to production. The experience I gained at Vax has already aided me with my final university project."

Sam, Industrial Design Student, 2008-2009

"It gave me a great head start in the world of design. By working in industry I started to look at products in a different way, which helped my overall understanding of the new product development process. Vax has a friendly vibe, which makes even the most daunting tasks achievable."

Tommy, Industrial Design Summer Placement 2008

"You are immersed into a friendly, fast paced and exciting design environment. My three placements at Vax across Easter and summer periods allowed me to experience all aspects of NPD, from looking into trends, concepts and new ideas, to improving existing products and technology. You rapidly develop your skills and are able to have a real impact on the latest products! It is a placement that I could not recommend more highly."

Guy Cowdry, Industrial Design Placement 2010
