Working with Vital Arts, BA Graphic Design students were invited to tour Thistle Ward at Newham Hospital. Graphic Design tutor Luise Vormittag explains:

I like taking people out of the College into other environments where they encounter other types of people, other types of concerns, I want them to think about how they might implement design in those contexts, where people by default aren’t particularly interested in the arts, but where you could address a problem with design. In this case, it worked really well.

Initially looking to commission one scheme, Vital Arts ended up selecting two! Read the full story here.
