Proud to be Staffs Story: Ryan Delves and Josh Wallett

Student, Students' Union Live Lab and Union Team Member


Taking the initiative to contact us, Ryan Delves (Advertising & Brand Management student) suggested a brand redesign to the exterior of Squeezebox, and sent us some concepts on Social Media. From there our Marketing and Squeezebox team worked with Union Team Member Josh Wallett (Graphic Design student) to develop these concepts and redesign the outside of the building. 


Josh's Story

Our marketing manager was surprised to be contacted by one of our Students, who wanted to suggest that Squeezebox could look so much better with a facelift. As a Union Team Member, Josh was given the opportunity to create this brand, and created a professional range of artworks and mock-ups, from thereJosh worked with the Squeezebox team and exterior printing to turn these designs into the look you see today. As a result, Squeezebox looks great and we've enjoyed working with a professional, discipline focused, student who made us Proud to be Staffs.

Ryan's Story

Ryan initially contacted us one social media with a new brand idea for Squeezebox, which we saved for summer when we could close Squeezebox. In the meantime, Ryan took up a Live Lab opportunity to brand our 'September Room'. With the brief to make this as 'Union-y' as possible, Ryan created a fantastic new look to the exterior of the room. 

What is a live lab?

Here at Staffordshire University Students' Union we believe in harnessing talent and providing great opportunities for Students. Our Live Lab programme creates opportunities for Students to use their talents to contribute to the work of the Students' Union in real ways; developing their experiences and supporting their learning.
