Space Tourism with The Saturday Club


We were honoured to be invited once again to do a Masterclass for The National Science and Engineering Saturday Club, which enables students in secondary schools to develop their creative skills. Our Masterclass this year was with Kingston University’s Club. Our brief to them was to create a design and brand identity for a spacecraft based on their destination planet. Taking the properties of each planet into consideration, the students developed a palette of colours, materials and finishes for application in spacecraft interiors. Each group then presented their concept to the rest of the students.

We have a long-standing history of holding Masterclasses with The Saturday Club and are pleased to be supporting them by building bridges between education and industry.

Qatar Airways Launches New Qsuite


It’s been nearly ten years since we first started collaborating with Qatar Airways. In that time, the airline has been a pivotal driving force in elevating passenger experience in air travel. We’re delighted to see our latest programme with them revealed to the public for the first time today.

Qatar Airways’ new Business Class concept, featuring the Qsuite is set to redefine business class travel. The Qsuite is the first Business class suite in the world to have a double bed. In addition, centre quads allow groups of four to sit together, providing the first truly social at seat experience in a Business Class cabin. Each suite can also become a private individual space thanks to fully closing doors and privacy panels on every side.

On 1 April 2016, PriestmanGoode became an employee owned company. The studio is now majority owned by an Employee Ownership Trust.

Paul Priestman explains: “Whilst the other directors and myself are remaining at the helm of the studio, we wanted to put things in place to ensure the legacy of the company we have built. This is a commitment to our team, a great number of whom have been with us for many years and have been instrumental to our success. We wanted to empower them, share in the success that we’ve built and make everyone at PriestmanGoode feel invested in our continued growth.

Transitioning into an employee-owned company is us applying those same principles to our own company. It’s a collaborative and long-term approach to business decisions and will ensure that we keep growing in a sustained manner”
