Co–nnection

Back

The difficulties students face trying to get their first job in the creative industries can be described as follows: you can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job. Here Co-nnection aims to provide help by linking students and local design studios through a platform which enables contextualised learning and authentic real-world experience. In addition, students are given a desk in the heart of an agency. Since these are often rare, a folded, portable cardboard desk has been designed, which can easily be set up anywhere.
