A Middlesex University student will see his work shown in front of millions of screaming fans, after playing a key role in creating innovative jackets worn by Take That during their 'Progress' tour, which arrives in London today (June 30, Wembley Stadium).
Second year BSc Product Design student, Djorn Fevrier, was selected to form part of a team tasked with designing and producing jackets featuring strips of LED lights, which flash in different coloured patterns as the band move across the stage. Working for top designer Moritz Waldemeyer, Djorn was chosen to help with both the creative process and the programming and testing of the LED strips which ensure the crowd-pleasing jackets play their part in the spectacular concerts.
Moritz Waldemeyer selected Djorn for the project after being impressed by the expertise of Middlesex University students when previously working with them on projects including a music video for pop star Ellie Goulding's single Lights and an advert for Mercedes-Benz TV.
Moritz said: "Djorn was fantastic. Take That were thrilled with the jackets and were impressed with how quickly we were able to create them, which was down to the team. I couldn't have asked for a better group. The jackets look great."
Djorn Fevrier, 22, from Watford said: "Moritz is a brilliant teacher and really values your input and ideas. I've previously worked on similar projects for carnivals, but nothing on this scale. I learnt a lot from the project and got a chance to work with very talented and inspirational professionals."
Djorn's creative talents are set to be seen far and wide, with Take That's tour including dates across Europe.
