As part of the London Design Festival, Central Saint Martins invites you to meet the minds of design’s next generation.


At the heart of the King’s Cross design district, welcoming Design Junction as a neighbour, Brain Waves presents the work of our leading design graduates, exploring the varieties of design intelligence they deploy in their work as they engage with uncertain futures.

As the complexities of contemporary life demand new ways of thinking, breadth of approach is essential. Brain Waves sets out four territories: Creative ForensicsEmpathic InventionHaptic Thinking and Shifting Reality. The aim is not only to show how different types of design intelligence are applied to process and object, but also their wider potential and application. Design is not the route to more things and new aesthetics, it is a key to making sense of the world.
