Save the dates in your calendar: the 2018 BA Design show, M-O-D (Museum Of Design) will take place on 7-11 June (open to the public 8-10 June, with a private viewing for industry and press on the evening of the 7th). This year, the show is leaving Brick Lane to relocate to the Copeland Park creative hub in Peckham. More information will be available soon, but until then, be sure to follow the show’s Instagram acount for a peek at student work in progress.
The 2017 Design Snow Ball is happening on 14 December at the Rivoli Ballroom; tickets are £15 and can be bought from the Goldsmiths Student Union. All proceeds will go towards funding next year’s BA Design show.
BA Design student Dewi Uridge, who created this year’s Goldsmiths Prize trophy (eventually won by Nicola Barker), provides us with some insight into his process:
“I was fortunate to be asked to design and make the trophy for this year’s Goldsmiths Prize. I had one guideline to stick by: to ensure the logo of the award was present.
