In 2014, students from BA Graphic Design began a project tackling homogeneity in hospital wards. Two years later, after installation (and the students’ graduation) we celebrate two wonderful schemes.

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.
