Throughout the College our students are preparing their final projects for Show Two: Design. Ahead of the show opening next week, we're delighted to announce the nominees for this year's MullenLowe NOVA Awards from across Show Two.

Presented by global communications network MullenLowe Group, the annual MullenLowe NOVA Awards celebrate exceptional work by graduating students from across our degree shows.

Featuring the work of graduating students from across five programmes, the nominated works span the fields of jewellery, textiles, graphic design, performance design, product design and architecture. Chosen for their innovative and creative approaches, the nominated works cover a diverse range of topics and approaches from Alice Genberg's coffee leather to Wen Ju Tseng's jewellery collection confronting social expectations.

Nominated works

2019 marks the 9th year of the MullenLowe NOVA Awards and this year includes the inaugural Creative Review Award for Innovation chosen by Creative Review. Follow the shows and the awards on social media using #MLGNOVA and #CSMtakingshape.

“Every year the MullenLowe NOVA judges manoeuvre their way through an incredibly diverse landscape of creative outputs, and every year they come up trumps, because in the end, really great work shines through, whatever discipline it comes from. In the past few years, this output has become ever more urgent in the face of a febrile external world, and I expect still more provocation from the NOVA Awards this year.”

Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins
