Consultancy and research

Thanks to a relationship with Teesside University, Design 365 recruited a graduate, with mentoring support from a University specialist, to create a mobile phone app development arm to the company. Design 365, based in Newton Aycliffe, is a 100% web focused agency which allows it to develop sector expertise. It has over 150 corporate clients.

Through a knowledge exchange internship (KEI) James Poel, a web development graduate, has been supported in his new role with expertise through tutoring sessions with Julien Cordry, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science.

James Poel, knowledge exchange intern
'I have learnt a lot since coming here. I had a good knowledge of web development through my course but I needed more expertise on iPhone app design. Julian came in and tutored me on the best way to develop the apps needed. Having that one-to-one tutoring was essential.

'I've also improved different application development skills and php which I already knew how to do but not as well.'

This project is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government, securing £300m investment.

The project will make a major contribution to the ambition of the ERDF Competitive Programme 2007-13 and by increasing the numbers and survival of business start ups in the region and increasing business productivity.
