OUR PARTNERS

 

Having worked in the service industry for several years, I was stuck in a rut and keen to work in design. Throughout my studies at London Fields Design School, I was motivated and supported to push myself and reach out to my dream companies. Covering all of the key software to such a high level, meant that I was an immediate asset to potential employers. After graduating I secured a full-time job with iMakr, 3D modelling, 3D printing and generally being creative! Thank you so much to Ben and the team - I would highly recommend!
