Where Are They Now? We hear from Heathcote alumni Robyn Payne
Robyn Payne - Class of 2013
"I graduated from Central St Martins university with honours and a 2:1 in Product Design - 1% off a first which was a shame, but never mind! My degree show was amazing, New Designers was OK (however I preferred the degree show), and then I went on to exhibit at the London Design Festival in the OXO tower for the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
After this I went to Amsterdam to exhibit for a gallery there called Transnatural. I also exhibited at Dutch Design Week along with being featured in Elle Decoration magazine - that was pretty cool to be fair!
Earlier this year I was nominated for the Global Design Intelligence Awards in China and made it to the finals out of 388 total entries! I travelled there and presented my work to a large audience (which felt like the Eurovision song contest) along with judges and jurors, not to mention being televised! I was delighted to come third, falling behind Apple and Samsung - (to be fair I had no chance really!).
I am now working as a designer for a company called Domus Tiles based in London, which is really great."
