This is an exciting opportunity for an undergraduate with an interest in user-centred design, to contribute to cutting edge development programmes using your creative skills.

You will be involved in activities such as front-end concept generation with participation in creative workshops; graphics and packaging design; digital design including user interface design, foam prototyping designs for testing; creating storyboards to communicate designs; and you may be able to attend a user study to research the needs of patients and evaluate your designs.

  • You will be passionate about product design and technology with a strong creative flair and meticulous attention to detail.
  • Your portfolio will demonstrate your ability to communicate your ideas and designs clearly and attractively. It must include a broad range of core design skills such as sketching, concept illustrations, renderings and a description of the design process.
  • Freehand sketching and presentation hand renderings are pre-requisites for the role. Good working knowledge of common design applications including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Knowledge of SolidWorks and KeyShot would be an advantage.
