Taha is a final year student on BA (Hons) Design Management at London College of Communication.
Why did you choose to study this course and why London College of Communication?
Prior to the studying BA (Hons) Business Management, I completed a Foundation course in Business, Economics and Accounting and I didn’t enjoy it. I've always wanted to study something in the creative field but never knew what. BA (Hons) Design Management combines the practicality of business studies with the ability of inputting my creativity and imagination into every single project.
What’s the most interesting project you’ve worked on so far?
There have been so many. One assignment challenged us to collaborate with a company and I took this opportunity to do something I wouldn’t usually do. I decided to study consumer behavior and create a collaboration with Chanel and myself to release a collection solely for dogs. It might sound silly but I really wanted to have fun with the project and it definitely paid off in the end.
What important piece of advice would you give to students thinking of studying this course?
Know that you will have an immense amount of creative freedom. Most briefs are generally broad which allows you to input your own interests.
What has been the highlight of your LCC experience so far?
LCC is such a welcoming place - from the tutors to the students. Everyone is willing to help you reach your end goal.
How do you find being a student in London?
London has grown to becoming my favorite place in the world. I consider everyday to be a dream day in London, whether that may be going to the park for a stroll or getting lost in any of the London boroughs that are filled with culture and new experiences.
If you had to describe your LCC experience in three words, what would they be?
Challenging, exciting and understanding.
