I have been back in Copenhagen since the 30th of January. I moved back into my old room, because I subleased my room during the time I was in Billund.
My first Monday in Denmark was already a busy one. First of all I had an introduction to my current school project what will be my final master thesis project. The project takes up my complete last semester. If I pass this project, I will graduate as a master student in industrial design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. At the moment of writing I am already 8 weeks in my project, so almost half way and everything is on track.
On my first Monday in Denmark I also had a meeting with the Danish company GripGrab. GripGrab is a company that focusses on accessories for cycling and running. I approached the company to work together with them for my master thesis project, because I wanted to do a project that is more aimed towards the area of sports and sportswear. GripGrab wanted to work with me as well on my project, so we had a first meeting on Monday to get to know one another and discuss the brief and direction of the project.
So for my master thesis project I will focus on a line of cycling accessories for commuters that will fit within their lifestyle and they want to wear. I will narrow it down by focussing on three target groups in particular.
At the moment I am developing three different concepts directions, so a lot of sketching but GripGrab also provided me with different kinds of material samples so I can get a better hands-on experience as well.
The upcoming weeks I will be working on my master thesis project and I plan on building some prototypes soon also with the help of GripGrab.
