On Wednesday we hosted the first mentoring session of the year, where our new final year design students got the chance to meet their mentors and discuss their new project, a live brief involving a re-brand and web design for a Scottish charity organisation.

We also showed a selection of the 90-second videos our students put together for their motivation projects. Some of these are now available to view on our vimeo space.

One of the mentors who couldn't make the event was Kirsten Murray (a senior designer at Family), who was on holiday in America. But she showed her dedication to the programme by taking some time out to say hello to everyone via Skype from San Fransisco.

An extra guest in attendance was Simon Earp, recently appointed Vice Principal of Corporate Development at the College, who came along to see the mentoring programme in action.
