Students’ ideas hit the heights

Students’ ideas hit the heights

Darwen story

Two A level students from Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio have used their design skills to create different logo ideas for Riverside Heights – Together Housing’s new housing with care scheme currently being built in Darwen.

Good friends Emma Langton and Aziz Ali worked jointly on the project which has given them the opportunity to learn about working in the design profession by doing a real life assignment. 

“We were given the brief by our tutor and began by researching local landmarks around Darwen – the hills and the Tower that everyone recognises,” said Emma. “Then we looked at lots of different fonts to decide what would be suitable for this housing project. Studio schools are different because students do real work and paid work placements.”

At Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio, students’ learning is delivered through enterprise themed projects in the school, local businesses and in the community. Through doing real work, students develop key employability and life skills.

Aziz said: “We have a lot of commissions from outside school that students lead on. I worked with Emma on this project as we’re good friends. We did various versions and experimented with different ideas. It’s been good to get feedback from Together Housing.”

The logo ideas for Riverside Heights created by Emma and Aziz will now be developed by Together Housing’s designer.
