Design for change project + Sky Creative

In their third year, our undergraduate students have the opportunity to complete a ‘Design for change’ project. The project aims to give a space for exploring how design can contribute to social change. Past projects include:

  • Say something – an anti-sexual harassment campaign
  • A hidden disabilities learning kit – designed to build a more considerate atmosphere for those living with hidden disabilities through awareness within schools
  • A non-profit initiative called ‘Wear Conscious’ – a social media campaign for change in consumer behaviour and the fast fashion industry

This year, Aanand Tank (a graduate of the Typography & Graphic Communication department) and Shraddha Depala, from Sky Creative, joined the teaching team to inspire students through their experience working on Sky campaigns including Black History Month and Pride turns 50.

The students were also invited to visit Sky Creative, shadow a Diversity & Inclusion meeting with Aanand and Shraddha, and experience a tour of the campus and design studios.
