Another year of Graduate Degree Shows and ours kicked off on May 31st 2018!!
The array of topics on display really show a commitment from these students to use design and their ability to enrich the fabric of society in some way. They have tackled themes like community engagement, food waste & composting, mental health, light pollution, language skills and education and smarter cities to name but a few!
They have delivered their concepts through the lens of a social commentator trying to disrupt the status quo. There was traditional typographic skills on show through a selection of books the group designed throughout the year, and a large selection of digital projects too.
There is a high level of awareness around the commerciality of these projects and many could go into development mode with these projects. The group have shown an excellent awareness of and engagement with society which highlights the evolving nature of design education past the notion of only creating for consumption but towards design for social good.
Students work can be seen on Behance
Well done to all, and it is a pleasure to have taught this group!
