Students and Shore employees sat around table reviewing portfolios

Shore engages with Edinburgh Napier University design students

Published: 4 March 2024

Shore is engaging with the next generation of designers through brand-new sessions at Edinburgh Napier University. The sessions will provide product design and graphic design students with insight into portfolio management, and real-world medical device case studies.

The first session kicked off with a portfolio review. Led by Design Consultants and Industrial Design experts, James Glencross, and Jimmy Mower, it was an open session to provide insights and guidance to help product design and graphic design students refine their portfolios and make an impression on potential employers.

So, what exactly would a prospective employer look for in a standout portfolio? James and Jimmy share their tips here.

The upcoming second session, scheduled later this month, will see fourth-year product design students presented with several case studies. These will showcase where Shore has taken a medical design project from early concept, through human factors studies, engineering development, and onto launch – and will highlight how our designers are integrated with our engineers.

“The sessions will hopefully provide students with a deeper understanding of the design process and gain insight into real-life examples and perhaps even inspire them to apply their skills to the medical device industry. It’s great to see the team at Edinburgh Napier University creating these opportunities for the students” – James McLusky, Director at Shore.

Q&As and one-to-one discussions in the sessions will provide students with feedback and recommendations from our experts.

“This initiative between Edinburgh Napier University and Shore aims to foster an ongoing mutual relationship between industry professionals and our students. Collaboration with industry is inspiring for students, and helps contribute to the development of a skilled workforce that can drive creativity and innovation” – Dr Matt Sinclair, Head of Design, Photography and Advertising at Edinburgh Napier University.

If you’re a design student seeking a summer placement, or a graduate looking for a full-time role, we have opportunities to join the team here at Shore. Check out our careers page.
