Digital Designers in Residence are drawn from the final year undergraduate cohort across MMU School of Art. This allows the project flexibility to offer specialist skills across a wide range of design sectors. Undergraduates will be undertaking the project as part of a period of self-directed and collaborative study which is a mandatory requirement of their course – Unit X.
Digital Designers in Residence are matched to appropriately profiled teachers within participating schools, to co-develop, and co-teach a short project which brings new digital practice to the teachers own area of specialization.
Specialist subject areas may include interactive graphic design; website and app design, digital applications for fashion, textiles, 3D and product design, and digital animation amongst other specialisms which may be led by teachers own personal direction of enquiry.
