Testimonies from previous students undertaking their placement:

“Working at Dream but do not sleep has been one of my best experiences. The collaborative environment and supportive staff allowed me to get the most out of my industry placement. I was able to learn a variety of skills, everything from preparing the garment, and content creation to packing it ready for shipment. One of my biggest challenges was facing the embroidery machine, but through perseverance it turned out to be my favourite process.”

Danielle, Final year, Industrial Design & Technology, Brunel University

“I learnt a lot from my internship with Dream But Do Not Sleep. I was taught almost everything about the business from the production process to the marketing and advertising of the brand. Everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and encouraging. As well as learning new things I was still able to have my creative freedom when it came to doing promotional photo shoots and blog posts. I wasn’t restricted to doing one thing, I learnt and had varied tasks to do every week which kept the internship exciting and interesting making me look forward to the following week. The atmosphere was really chilled however everyone still remained hardworking and focused.
