Welcome to NTUDI 2021
NTU Design Industries (NTUDI) is a creative community of students, staff and
alumni from BA (Hons) Furniture & Product Design, BA (Hons) Product Design, BSc (Hons) Product Design, MA Design: Products and Furniture and MSc Design:
Products and Technology at Nottingham Trent University.
Each year a dedicated student committee shape the NTUDI brand to reflect their identity as a cohort and to organise their degree show.
This year, the Product Design Online Degree Show showcases final year work through a curated virtual exhibition, design process film, digital course brochures and student website profiles.
In the curated virtual exhibition, online audiences can view models in situ through 8K 360° panorama views. These have been designed specifically to suit the themes of this year’s furniture and product design, and include gardens, hangers, hotel lobbies, offices and living spaces. This ambitious virtual exhibition has been designed and curated by the NTUDI 2021 committee using state-of-the-art 3D rendering programs and virtual tour software.
The design process film showcases the breadth and physicality of the design process and reveals some behind-the-scenes footage of the NTUDI committee developing the Online Degree Show.
The digital course brochures can be viewed on the website or downloaded as a PDF. These include an introduction from the Head of Department and Course Leaders and compile the 2021 cohort.
We are NTU Design Industries 2021.
We are a group of innovators, makers and creators, bonding as we evolve in a dynamic and supportive surrounding.
Our community is one of resilience and adaptation, uniting in the determination of our personal goals, whilst being able to collaborate our skills and celebrate each other’s success, creating a feeling of togetherness.
As designers we strive to make the ordinary into the extraordinary. We play to our strengths and have learnt to adapt in a year of uncertainty under testing circumstances, developing our crafts, and ultimately shaping us into the designers we wish to be.
Everyone has a part to play and a strength to unlock. We are pillars of strength and support despite our distance, in a community which is wildly diverse. Our differences make us the creatives we are, even in times of isolation we still stand as one.
