WANT TO PRODUCE AN OUTSTANDING PROJECT?

Getting your best ideas in writing shouldn't be an issue, that's why we are sharing a few tips that will help you produce a clear and well developed project for submission.

We spend a lot time designing the bridge, but not enough time thinking about the people who are crossing it.

TIPS TO DO YOUR RESEARCH

The initial stages of your research will create a roadmap for you to continue developing your idea. Here are a few things to consider when you start your project research. 

  • Start with desk research
  • Work closely with your identified audience
  • Ask them the right questions
  • Watch, try and learn from them

TIPS TO PRESENT YOUR WORK

We will need your work be presented in 6 x A3 sheets.

Remember:

  • You will need to tell the story of your project from initial research to final idea
  • You will need to include sketches, photos, models and initial ideas. Remember this is a design competition!
  • Be as creative as possible to make your work stand out.
