David was paired with Adam Holland from PTEA. David was deemed to be a good match for PTE as his passion is social housing, which is PTE’s area of specialism. Adam gave David thorough feedback on his CV and portfolio and invited David to consultation events held by PTEA. David then applied, was interviewed by PTE who offered him a placement as part of his Part 1 Architecture qualification. David undertook his placement from September 2017 to early 2018. Sarah Eastham, Senior Architect at PTE remarked, ‘he impressed our interview panel as he was really well prepared, he’d done his research I have to say, had good questions for us too, and came over really well, we are delighted to be offering him a position.’
This year, David has been interning with a subsidiary of Google and is interested in the intersection between the creative/design & tech sector. He has been doing some Freelance work with D & AD as well as the Design Council.
