The presentations of the companies
At 9 o’clock the first presentation started from the company named Hummel. They told us allot about the history of the company and what the company is doing nowadays. Hummel is a Danish manufacturer of sportswear and accessories. The company produces for sports like football, handball, basketball, rugby, cricket and volleyball. The company was founded in 1923 by the family Messmer in Hamburg, Germany. That makes the company one of the oldest companies in sportswear. Hummel is currently located in Aarhus, Denmark.
The next presentation was from the company WOUD. WOUD offers a high quality range of design furniture, lighting and home accessories. Their mission is to create long-lasting original design within a universe where every product has a meaning, a purpose and a function. Their designs radiate ”love at first sight” through colours, textiles, wood and aesthetics.
After the two presentations, the teachers revealed which groups are going to work for which company. The groups with a furniture student are going to work with WOUD and the other groups are going to work with Hummel. We are a group with two fashion design students, one pattern design student, one retail marketing student and one branding and marketing management student. So this means we are going to work with the company Hummel.
