"I loved my time doing 3D Design at Falmouth. One of the great things about the course was the freedom to play with materials, ideas and processes in the amazing facilities there. We did all the prototyping for our designs when we were at uni, and although we've constantly tweaked and evolved them over the years, we've based all our future designs on the information, research and design process we learnt at Falmouth."
