With Degree Show Two: Design fast approaching, the MullenLowe NOVA Awards return with the second wave of nominees.

Featuring the work of graduating students from across seven programmes, the projects on view in Show Two span the fields of jewellery, textiles, graphic design, performance design, culture and enterprise, product design and architecture. Selected for their innovative creative approaches, the 28 nominated projects reflect the diverse talent of our students – from Louis Lupien’s architectural celebration of Croydon to Veronica Fabian’s jewellery designs which explore female self-identity; Andrea Liu’s textile creations with salmon skin leather to Kenn Lam’s graphic ode to library books and beyond.
