Endpoint’s former intern rejoins as Technical Designer

Following her graduation from Brunel University this summer – where she achieved a 2:1 grade in Industrial Design – we’re delighted to announce that one of our 2017/8 interns, Cerys Thomas, has come back to Endpoint, as our new technical designer.

Cerys joins the technical team in London, working with Technical Director, Christian Lawson, and has already started working closely with our wayfinding team on one of their recent wins: Hornsey Town Hall.

“Returning to Endpoint was a no-brainer for me,” said Cerys. “I gained a true understanding of how design projects are completed in the real world, which made me way more efficient in my final year.

Working on technical drawings during my placement year as well as spending time with both the artwork and the technical teams prepared me for the challenge of designing a product that can be integrated into a busy environment seamlessly.”

This approach was evident in her impressive final project – which saw her design, build, and implement a device that coffee shops can install; to turn spent coffee grounds into a viable substrate to grow mushrooms and other fresh produce.

Her innovative thinking, positive attitude, and talent gave us the confidence to offer her the position and we’re glad she’s back.

“From day one I was welcomed back as part of the team and have felt at home ever since. As an intern, I was involved at every stage of the design process – an important learning process of a placement year. I certainly wasn’t just making teas and coffees for the team every day! I gained many new skills and didn’t only develop as a designer, but also as a person.”

Welcome Cerys! It’s great to have you back as a permanent team member.

We’ve also welcomed another Brunel University student – our new Technical Design Intern, Ollie Singleton.

Currently studying Industrial Design and Technology, he’ll be part of the Endpoint team for the next 12 months, working alongside Cerys in Christian’s team. He’s looking forward to getting hands-on with projects and building on his technical, production, and manufacturing experience.
