Conceptual designer, Thor: The Dark World
Graduated in 2012
Jordan Brocklehurst is a conceptual designer who has worked on projects ranging from a new visitor attraction at Thorpe Park to costumes for recent Hollywood Blockbuster ‘Thor: The Dark World’.
He worked with fellow graduates Matt Ward and Richard Barnett to create two of the space pirate suits featured in the film. Working in a secret location in Worcestershire, and provided with just sketches of the characters suits, they had two weeks to help produce the prototype suits. Each consisted of a helmet, together with various different pieces for the body, shoulder, forearm, upper and lower legs, with each suit featuring over 40 separate parts.
Jordan was also the lead designer behind the ‘My Bloody Valentine’ fright night maze, a live attraction at Thorpe Park. He designed the route of the maze and sections within it after watching the film of the same name. Thousands of visitors have since experienced the adrenaline and terror of his creation.
After graduating with a first class degree in Product Design in 2012, Jordan converted his garage into a workshop and began preparing to go freelance on a small scale until Matt, his closest friend from the course, invited him to help form Scruffy Dog Ltd, a company specialising in experiential marketing, set design and construction.
