Ravensbourne Student of the Year 2014


Daryl Humphrey Profile

Daryl Humphrey is talented no question about it. He is modest too. Selected by industry professionals to win the the prestigious “Ravensbourne Student of the Year 2014” Award, Daryl speaks about his experience as a student at Ravensbourne and what his future plans hold.

Define Ravensbourne after your experience as a student

It has been an amazing 3 years. Ravensbourne is a unique place to study. It provides such great opportunities for its students, such as live briefs and working so close to people in your chosen field as a fellow professional. I believe that one of the biggest benefits that Ravensbourne has is that it prepares you for industry, so before you have finished your degree, you are ready to walk straight into a job and not feel out of your comfort zone. 

In Ravensbourne we all become like family

How do you feel now that you have been awarded the Student Award?

I am still in shock really, but I'm so honoured and pleased to receive this award! It is a great way to cap off my studies! 

Whose support was of greatest importance to you as a student?

I would like to thank my family, and my tutors Sam, Nadine, and Evan, for supporting me during my projects. Also a special thank you to most of my classmates in product and interaction. They have always leant a hand whenever it was needed, and over the past 3 years have become like family. 

What are your plans for the next months?

First of all, I want to enjoy The Degree Show, and soak up the great atmosphere it creates. It is such a good way to meet people in industry! But after that, I will have a little break and then start looking for a job in the product design industry.

Thank you Daryl – and congratulations on becoming the Ravenbourne Student of the Year 2014. 

Daryl is a final-year student in BA (Hons) Design Products/Interaction.
