Inspiring London.. A Creatively Challenging Course

Watch MAGDC student Christian Witternigg’s video and hear him talk about his time in inspiring London, being amongst diverse creatives and mixing with an international group of students and Londoners, and of course his final major project!



European Street Design Challenge

A team of students from MA Graphic Design Communications and MA Interior Spatial Design  from Chelsea, developed this adventurous idea, Water Lilly Multi User Platform and early prototype for the European Street Design Challenge 2013, held again in Paris, as part of the Futur en Seine Festival. The Water Lilly proposal had both physical constructs and digital elements (physical computing and online communications)

Team members were: Prudence Djajadi (Indonesia), Antzelina Papaioannou (Greece), Haobo Chen (China), Hiroshi Ito (japan).

Success Stories

So the stories of career breakthroughs, collaborations and events after graduation from MAGDC start trickling are some of the announcements concerning the success of the students just a few weeks since the graduate show

Samia Rajar was selected to exhibit her project “The Pilgrimage” at Waterman’s New Media Gallery, London. The group exhibition, called Enter12 offers a platform to showcase the emerging talent in the field of digital art, design and media production.  This year’s exhibition includes work that involves innovative processes and diverse material ranging from design, interactive installation, film, graphic and communication design. Samia was also commissioned to design the brand/identity for the Enter12 showImage

Lorraine Pastré has had her film, “How the Jasmine Blossoms” circulated across social media networks supporting the Arab Spring revolution, after sending it to Tunisian activist, Lina Ben Mhenni, who, is heavily featured in the film. 

Sarah Halls has successfully gained an internship at Jotta after being introduce to them during a presentation at Cheslea College. She has been working on creating an immersive exhibition environment for a group moving image show ‘Refraction’ at the KOPPARBERG ÜN-ESTABLISHMENT

Andreea Dumata  now begins her internship at The Mill, London  after winning the Student Design Challenge

Award; European Collaborative Design Project 2012-13

MA Graphic Design Communication course at Chelsea has succeeded in obtaining a special project funding from Erasmus with partners in Madrid, Crete, Brussels, Porto for 2012 -2013. This project will be part of the range of special projects offered to students studying during this academic year.

Street Type by Spy, Madrid

The project will focus on design methodologies for cross cultural experiences in city environments. The project will benefit from supervising tutors in the partnership who are specialists in Graphic Design, Interaction Design, Architecture, Interior Design, Photography and Digital Media

This will be a very exciting inter disciplinary project, allowing discrete specialist practices to be brought forward whilst shaping creative approaches through collaboration with the cross European team.

If you are lucky enough to have a place on MA Graphic Design Communications at Chelsea for 2012-13 then we look forward to working with you on this project soon!

Street Design Challenge Paris

LabandField, led by Sadhna Jain will be directing a group of  students from the MA Graphic Communication Design Course from Chelsea College of Art and Design, and a recent UAL graduate, to participate in an enterprising and socially responsible design project; European Street Design Challenge, held in Paris June 2012. Sadhna will also be mentoring other groups of participants from China, Netherlands, and France during this time.

The group is kindly sponsored by the Enterprise Office at CCW , University of the Arts, London. Many thanks Alanah and Elizabeth!
This is an international design challenge project which requires the designers to bring together the most creative and practical uses of communication design and digital technologies for an urban environment application.
We will be sharing the stage with participants from China, Netherlands and France.

The design challenge highlights these important points
*Greater awareness and use of digital technologies, tools, prototyping and open, collaborative methodologies in the design of innovative, sustainable and desirable urban design solutions
*Growth of “organic” understanding and collaboration between designers, resident communities and policy makers; integration of the Cultural and  Industries as a critical regenerative force within the community
