Trust fostered independent thinking

Joining the first cohort of the Product Design degree, Tom Jaggs and two of his fellow students set up design consultancy for his year in industry which is still going strong. After winning the New Designers Allermuir Associate Prize in 2018, he has worked as stage crew in three theatres, as well as working as an extra in Downton Abbey and 1917. Tom is in the Reserve Army and has been working in the family creative marketing agency, Resolution Design. “The freedom and trust we were given have made me the confident thinker I am today,” he said. “My advice to students currently studying is that there is no right or wrong way to do something, only good ways and bad ways. Find your way and if it works, it’s a good way to do it.”
