International development project calling for entries

On behalf of the Philippines Department of Trade, the British Council is currently recruiting designers for a four-month consultancy in product design and development.

The designers will be required to use the materials and manufacturing techniques of the Bicol region of the Philippines.

The consultancy is most suited to designers working in product design, furniture or fashion accessories and the consultant is likely to be working with hardwoods, minerals, coconut, and other natural fibres.

Designers who would like the brief or further information about the project should contact Fiona McEwen at the British Council for the full brief on 020 7389 3161 or by e-mail to fiona.mcewan@british council.org.
