Loughborough students' work displayed at international exhibition

Three students from the School of Design and Creative Arts (SDCA) were selected to submit a project to be included in the ‘Interdependence’ exhibition as part of Milan Design Week.

The exhibition, organised by The Polimi Design System (the School of Design, the Department of Design, and POLI.Design) took place in Fabbrica del Vapore, from 16-21 April, and featured the work of students from 50 international design schools worldwide. 

The Loughborough students who exhibited their projects are as follows: 

  • Jules Goreing, undergraduate Graphic Design student - Project Afghanistan 2001-2021 

The cover of an orange book with text reading 'Visualisation of the war in Afghanistan from the data collected between 2001 and 2021'.

This book showcases the loss of life experienced by all parties involved and brings to light the often unspoken, deeply traumatic consequences of war. 

  • Alice Williams, undergraduate Graphic Design student - Project Rise 

A colourful graphic of different rooms and staircases with the title 'Rise' in the middle.

Rise is a co-op puzzle game where each player works on a different centre of gravity and uses non-verbal methods of communication to work together. 

  • Tianhao Zhao, master’s Graphic Design and Visualisation student - Receipts of Neglect: The Expandable Generation 

A black and white photo of an elderly man's face, made up strips of receipts.

Receipts of Neglect: The Expandable Generation is a project that explores the socio-political dynamics surrounding the treatment of the elderly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Sara C. Klohn Reader, Lecturer and Programme Leader in Graphic Design commented: “As a School, we are very proud to have sent the students’ work to represent our programmes at such a prestigious event.  

“Their projects represent our wider student cohort, and exemplify graphic designers’ responsibility within society, engaging with relevant topics and translating them into innovative and conscious outputs, which are also beautifully presented.”
