Becoming a Designer in Europe (BADIE) is an Erasmus+ funded project involving a number of educational institutions from across Europe. Over the course of this project Petroc students who are studying for the Foundation Degree in Illustration are taking part in a number of exchanges and workshops with students from Germany, Italy, Malta, and Poland. This has allowed them to engage not only with their European peers but also with established creative practitioners in each country.
Each exchange involves a number of activities related to different design fields including architecture, fashion, graphic design, web and user experience design. The objective of this project is to broaden the participants' professional horizons and to help other emerging creatives understand how to follow a career path within the design industry that could lead them to work across Europe. Ski Martin, a Petroc tutor involved in the trip said: “This is an amazing opportunity for students to work collaboratively bringing up many unique challenges and preparing them for real world situations.”
