St Pancras Hospital
Central Saint Martins worked with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust on a Graduate Consultancy Project to create a more welcoming and stimulating healthcare environment in one of their psychiatric wards in St Pancras Hospital. Two BA Graphic Communication Design graduates devised three distinct design concepts with the aim of providing talking points and opportunities for reflection for service users, healthcare staff and visitors.
The selected design, entitled ‘The Journey’ is a series of hand painted pictures mounted on wooden ‘window’ frames depicting a traveller at different stages of a journey – ward staff felt this concept provided a parallel to how service users are encouraged to think about their time in the hospital as a journey.
