Central St Martin’s – TVE Branded?

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then we were suitably wowed to see the approach to the Central Saint Martins Degree Shows last weekend decorated in The Value Engineers’ red, blue and green colours … they even got the interlinking ribbons working perfectly too!
We’re not sure if the intent of these was also to provide a visual metaphor for the path from complexity to clarity (or simply to be a visually arresting reference to the basic RGB colour palette) but either way, they brought a fabulous splash of colour and inspiration to the regenerated area behind Kings X St Pancras and acted as an excellent lead-in to the show.
In the brilliant newly converted warehouse space that CSM now occupies, the work of the BA and MA grads looked amazing – exciting textiles, challenging fashion ideas and some interesting papers from the Innovation Management MA that act as a pretty good reflection of current thinking in this area, albeit with a deliberately design-led angle.
All the fun is over now for another year, but we’re looking forward to see how we can inspire them next year too
