This year’s graduating Design students will present their outcomes online starting 22 June, under the title “Hey, look, something is happening!” Until then, the blog gives you a peek at the work that will be on display. Today, we’re highlighting Madalena Gomes Ferreira:
“I started to develop a line of “Suit Socks”, re-using & re-constructing suits and other elements of formalwear to make socks. Rather than become a fashion item, these socks act as a tool for breaking assumptions.

Our final year BA Design students are running a podcast to promote this year’s graduation showcase, but also to fill in the gaps that an online degree show can’t fill, giving a voice to as many of this year’s class as possible. Jack Lowerson and Stan Bidston-Casey, who initiated the project as podcast producers alongside their classmate Emily Blake, talked about the thinking behind its development:
On how the podcast started and why:
“We had the idea for a radio show early in the third year. There aren’t many ways in which process is recorded at Goldsmiths Design, people outside the department are only exposed to finished products; other departments can’t engage with what the students do here. Even though there is a lot of emphasis on experimentation, testing and process in the department, nobody gets to see it, or to hear the very particular dialogues about work happening in the design studios, they get lost. So we wanted the podcast to showcase that. Continue reading “Hey, listen, something is happening! How BA Design students started a radio show”
Our alumni community consists of over 75,000 former students and staff based all over the world. Former students can’t meet in person during this time, but you can still benefit from the skills, insights and knowledge of the Goldsmiths alumni community.
We can’t invite you to visit us on campus in person these days for obvious reasons, but here’s the next best thing: a video tour guided by final year BA Design student Hannah Edwards. Find out what our facilities look like and meet some of our staff and students:
