It has been a great week for the Transatlantic Design project. We were in the CETLD newsletter and were asked to do two talks. One for the CETLD department where we held our won for a whole hour we were so scared to do this and wondered whether we were going to be able to talk for that long, but in hindsight I have no idea why we were worried, for a start we can all talk for england and also our project is so strong it almost speaks for itself. We also were invited to speak in a level two Product Design talk by Chris Rose a great lecturer who we had actually interviewed in New York. Both went down really well and it felt great to talk about such a successful project, It was even suggested we publish a book, I never thought we could do something like this but it showed me we can I think we all feel very proud.

We're giving a talk about our experiences with the project at the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning Through Design at the University of Brighton next week. The CETLD department kindly funded part of the project as well as helping us out with equipment and advice, so we're pleased to show them what we've learned.
The event is being held on Wednesday 18th November from 4pm until 5.30pm in the CETLD room at the University of Brighton.
To register for the event please email CETLDesign@brighton.ac.uk
Just thought we'd let you all know that the lack of posts is not due to neglect, we've all been busy bees starting our third year at university and all that that entails. Transatlantic Design has been continuing nonetheless, we're just about finished catching up with our transcribing for all of our New York interviews and busy setting up new ones for the London leg of the project. We'll post more information as we get it!
