DYO is a bit like DIY meets the FBI! An investigation and exploration of design and creativity.” – Paul (The Bulletman) Kerfoot.

The Design Your Own (DYO) model is a solution for schools and colleges who need a tailor-made project to meet the needs of both the ‘new school’ curriculum and students in need of creative stimulus. Whether it’s the world of work, life-skills, job-readiness, cross-curriculum activities or business engagement the DYO model can be adapted or moulded to fit your needs and (in most cases) also includes creative learning resource materials to engage and inspire young people. (Please contact Paul at Bulletpoint Design for further details.)

Paul has done a variety of speaking engagements and seminars on working with young people with both Bradford Education and Leeds Education (via Leeds Chamber) helping to inspire others and provide a model of best practice with DYO. This began with a work experience based project, Design Your Own Magazine (DYOM), then spin-off projects such as Design Your Own Business Card (DYOBC), T-shirt (DYOT) and Poster (DYOP), and Design Your Own Superhero (DYOS) in 2008/9, in partnership with Artworks (Bradford), CapeUK (Leeds) and Creative Partnerships.
