Merijn and Brian, students from Summa College, presented their first design ideas for Eindhoven mayor Jeroen Dijsselbloem’s new gavel to the city council. ”They really liked our ideas.”
For the discussion with councillors, the MBO students brought several prototypes. The hammers were made in different shapes and sizes. A recurring theme on the hammer pieces is Eindhoven’s logo. In addition, the students engraved the Evoluon on the hammerboard. This was very much appreciated by the members.
Plan is on track
Brian and Merijn received a number of tips that they need to work on in the coming weeks. For instance, the mayor’s badge should appear less prominently the gavel. Once that plan is approved, the gavel will be made. It is expected that the gavel will be made at an external company rather than at school.
The two are as proud as peacocks. ”I think it is so nice that for once we are working together with a client. It allows you to really experience what it is like to process feedback from a client,” Brian says. The aim is to hand over the new gavel at the first council meeting in 2023.
