Josh Allsopp Arrives for his Design Award Winning Placement

Josh Allsopp Arrives for his Design Award Winning Placement
06/12/2013

Brightworks welcomes Josh Allsopp this week to complete his work placement as one of the finalists in the 2013 Design Innovation in Plastics Award with his 'Disaster Casket' design. The Design Innovation in Plastics Award is the longest running student plastics design award in Europe and the brief for this years competition was titled ‘Saving Lives - Design for Disaster Relief’. Josh received the Highly Commended Award for his project ‘The Disaster Casket' as well as a placement at Brightworks Ltd.

Josh said; "instead of going down the traditional routes of water purification, temporary shelters, food packs etc. I decided to tackle a more taboo problem; dealing with the deceased. I have always had a desire to design and make things and it is this desire which has fuelled my ambition to become an industrial designer. I hold enthusiasm for the design process as a whole and I am constantly trying to build and develop my skill set to improve every aspect of my design work."

Josh is currently in his third year studying Industrial Design at Northumbria University and is seeking further placement opportunities from March 2014 - September 2014.
