How a 17 year old student found working with us!

Tom recently got in touch with us asking for an opportunity to gain experience working at a design studio. We were pretty impressed at how, even at 17 years old, he was being proactive about getting involved in the design industry, so we thought we would get him in for a few days. This is how he found it...

I am a second year college student studying engineering and I have recently been on work experience with Morrama. I spent 3 days with the team and learnt lots about their design process, how their business works and what they do on a daily basis. They taught me lots of new tips including using Pinterest to make mood boards, sketching with fine liners and using programmes such as Photoshop, Keyshot, Illustrator and InDesign.

Before I started my experience I imagined that Morrama had their own office, however they work at Somerset House in a place called Makerversity: a place for creative people to start their own businesses, with access to a workshops and desk space. The environment is very friendly and everyone made me feel welcome.

I chose to work at Morrama because they have a superb design team and they are a well structured company who have many interesting client projects. After university I am hoping to work in the same career. My work experience with them has really shown me where I could be in the future, and what it is like to work at a design consultancy.

Each day Morrama works on numerous projects in different areas. Keeping things fast paced and varied means that they are really productive and creative. They never have a chance to be bored at work! 

Jo, Rob and Nick all did an excellent job of keeping me busy too, giving me a great experience. They have never had a work experience person in before and I think they did a fantastic job. They answered all my questions, helped me put together a presentation and involved me in client design work.


It was great to have Tom with us, even for such a short time and we are really glad that he was able to take something away from his time at Morrama. We want to wish him the best with his future design career; keep an eye out for him in 3-4 years when he will be graduating!
