Field Notes

Robot Food x Sheffield Hallam University

As we quickly approach the end of the University year, students are gearing up for end-of-year exhibitions and life in ‘the industry’. Robot Food were invited to take an early peek at some of Sheffield Hallam’s latest crop of talent.

With an impressive new workspace located in a former Post Office building, and an equally impressive list of guest lecturers so far this calendar year, Sheffield Hallam is rapidly positioning itself as the University to watch in The North of England. With that in mind, Robot Food’s own Hallam alumni, Laura Evans, and Senior Designer Ben Brears were more than happy to make the trip over to help out with student portfolio surgeries.

The team saw a mix of second and final year students and dished out an array of tips and advice; on everything from typography and composition to wider comments on how to handle naming and how to better tell a project’s story.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on Sheffield Hallam’s students ahead of their degree show later this year and hope to be further involved with Sheffield Hallam and a number of other student communities soon.
