Paper Plane have been a delight to work with. The team has a great passion for learning as well as teaching, which shows in their attitude and flows into their courses. The Paper Plane team are very friendly, and I found teaching alongside the Project Lead to be no fuss and a lot of fun as we learnt off each other in our different backgrounds and teaching styles. The company is organised, skilled, and passionate, which all make for a great experience for students and teachers alike. Overall, it's been an absolute pleasure and great experience to be a part of the Paper Plane team!

"Our partnership with Delta cemented legitimacy for our business in the industry, whilst meeting with like-minded, committed creatives inspired fresh new ideas for future concepts. These young innovators thrived in the intimate, online environment, where ideas quickly sprung to instant data sharing in real time; from film trailers to articles and infographics. We can’t wait for our next course.

At Haworth, we treasure every opportunity to engage with those individuals (and organisations) with the courage to seek out new knowledge to improve the world around us. We believe in the power of collaborative design to create seismic change, so from the beginning the concept of Paper Plane we were hooked. This is the way education should be: Real. Inclusive. Inspirational.

The mentoring experience was extremely positive for us at Switchboard Media. Our partnership with Paper Plane concreted legitimacy for our business in the industry, whilst meeting for three hours weekly with like-minded, committed creatives inspired fresh new ideas for future concepts. The virtual classroom provided a safe space for learners, the course co-ordinator, and us, to communicate in turn without interruption or intimidation. We participated in the classes as equals with our learners, teaching them all that we knew, and learning from their youthful enthusiasm and innovative minds simultaneously. We can’t wait for our next course.

Case Studies

Create a Happier Workplace

LEARNERS: 10 | DURATION: 6 weeks |DELIVERY: Presentation
The Brief

The goal of this project is to understand how the application of design thinking can drive valuable and transformational innovation in the workplace. Incorporating insight into the mind, the body and nature, learners were asked to design a product or experience which promotes a happy and healthy workplace.

The Outcome

Trigami is an origami inspired workspace. Made with lightweight, soundproof materials, Trigami can be set up to support working individually or collaboratively. The flexible configuration is practical but also encourages play: fostering creativity, discovery and problem solving in the modern workplace.

The Future of Consumerism

LEARNERS: 10 | DURATION: 6 weeks |DELIVERY: Film script
The Brief

The goal of this project was to tell a story exploring different themes and ideas on how consumerism might change in the future, including the idea of ‘consumers as content’.

The Outcome

Learners had ultimate control over the direction of their stories and many extended the brief into the realms of science fiction. In ‘Introvision’ Ian Cook explores a world where human memories are up for sale and the unexpected costs and consequences of trading something so precious.
