Edge Design Careers Talk

Central Foundation Boys’ School had the pleasure to host well-known designer Steve Edge and his wife, photographer Sylvie Tata. The couple presented to a full house of creative pupils, particularly those studying art and technology. The session was organised to further inform our students about careers in art and design.

Steve Edge began by sharing his fantastic and inspiring life story. With artists as parents Steve began creating art from a young age. Before launching his own design agency Steve had worked on various creative projects, including the first Indiana Jones film. He then spoke about the development of his design agency, Edge Design, and the work they have done. Edge Design is a successful company and has created branding solutions for companies such as Hamleys, St Pauls Cathedral, Purdey and even our very own school. The students enjoyed listening to his stories and hung on his every word.

We then heard from Sylvie Tata, who shared with us her experience as a photographer. Sylvie explained the role of a photographer and all the different types of photography there are. She then told the eager spectators how she came to enter the profession and gave advice to anyone considering it as a career.

Both presentations offered a unique glimpse into an industry that so many wish to join. The event was well received and concluded to exuberant applause. Our students were enthusiastic and eager to find out more with both speakers being bombarded with questions at the end of the session. The school offers its thanks to them for coming into the school and inspiring our students.
