Tom Jones I am a second year industrial design student currently studying in Northumbria University. I am comfortable with the entire design process from conceptualising to constructing. I will happily sink my teeth into unknown territories and enjoy learning new processes and understanding its field of use. My strongest attributes within the design process I believe are ideation and modelling. I really enjoy photography and the outdoors. I am currently looking for a 3 month placement beginning in march. This is fairly flexable.

When compressed coffee granules can be used as fuel.

The smoke produced is a very effective at repelling mosquitoes.

This combination of attributes is ideal for outdoor living.
