We have worked with Fine Art students in On Collecting, Defining Practices both projects offered an opportunity for them to respond to the collection or the notion of museums.
Fashion Design and Technology students used our collection to look come up with ideas for obscure objects in our Branding case study.
Our case study Visual explanation looks at the work of Illustration students describing how to use on object by using only images and symbols.
Interior Architecture students were given an object and a display case in which to display it in Objective Objects.
Fantastic Plastic and Critical Review has seen the National Diploma Students in Art and Design work with us on a number of occasions.
MoDiP has acted as client to Visual Communication students by providing a brief to design logos in Creating Identity.
Textile design students have been Inspired by MoDiP and have created some wonderful patterns from shapes they have seen in our objects.

Groupings of objects have enabled Graphic Design students to create assessed work in Typographic studies.
And finally, for now, objects in the collection have offered Model Making students Direct Inspiration.
We really enjoy seeing how the collection can help AUB students with their studies. We also enjoy sharing it with AUB teaching staff and beyond in the hope that we can be a part of lots more exciting projects with both internal and external teaching staff.
