The Creative Projects

In industry, professionals will often work on 'creative projects'. To help you prepare your Portfolio for your interview, we've created our own Creative Projects you can respond to.

Responding to the Creative Project

You can choose one of the Creative Projects below to base your work on. Although your project will end in a Portfolio, you'll also want to write down the creative process you went through to get to your finished result.

For example: what have you researched? How have you developed your ideas? Why did you choose your main idea? Our tutors love to see your thinking. It helps them gain a greater understanding of how you've responded and why you made the decisions you have.

You can record your creative process in whatever method is best for you. You might choose to develop ideas on a sheet of paper, in a sketchbook, or even write a blog.

We will be looking for evidence of:

  • Research and problem solving
  • Communication and presentation
  • Creative content

Please select a Creative Project below to respond to.

Project One: Society and Community

Prepare a short story that places you or your central character in a different community to the one that you currently live in. It's worth thinking about a specific scenario or incident to build your narrative on.

Project Two: Imagine our Future

Imagine our future world – 20, 30, 100 or 1000 years from now – how and where will we live? How will we communicate? What will the natural world look like? What products will we need and use? What might we look like and what might we wear? What stories will we tell of our present and our past? What will we believe in? What games might we play? How will we entertain ourselves?

Project Three: Environment and Sustainability

When we consider design, joy is often thought of as a nice-to-have, rather than a necessity.  Study after study shows that joy makes us healthier, more productive, creative and resilient. It also has a positive impact on our environment. Right now, nothing seems the way it used to be, so what better time than to rest, reflect and design with joy in mind.
