Ferndown Upper School is the only school in Dorset amongst the 10 schools which have been shortlisted for The Design Museum’s Design Ventura 2021 awards.
A total of 110 secondary schools entered for the project which invited students to follow a brief set by award-winning artist and Pentagram Partner Yuri Suzuki to design a product that improves everyday life. Ferndown Upper School’s design The Flippy Book is a flip-book that mixes and matches iconic designs letting the user explore their creativity
The students will now be invited to pitch their design concepts to a panel of design and business professionals at Deutsche Bank’s head office in London. The winning team will then be announced at a celebration event at the Design Museum in April, with their winning idea going on sale in the Design Museum Shop later in the year for under £15 and the proceeds donated to a charity of the student’s choice.
