C&G Partners has a long tradition of hosting traveling groups from design schools in our office, so that they can see what we do and what it’s like to work here. We get a lot out of it too: the perspective of students from around the country, and around the world, helps to keep us on our toes. Today, partner Steff Geissbuhler spoke to a group from Buckinghamshire New University in England, led by senior lecturer John Hazlewood, about his thoughts on design.

We frequently host student groups; last week we met a group of students from Northampton University, London. We asked our new Buckinghamshire friends today if it was as cold in the UK as it is here at the moment, and the answer was a resounding “no.” Sorry about that!
