It's graduate show season and with students creating a huge pool of new talent, your designs need to be as innovative and original as possible. As a newcomer, design competitions can be a great place to get yourself noticed and the RSA Student Design Awards is one such venture that can really get you going.
It's a competition that challenges emerging designers to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking. This year, they saw almost 800 entries, later becoming a shortlist of 70 before the judges made their decisions.
Winners included an innovative digital heritage mapping and storytelling project for children by children; a simple playhouse toy that allows kids to express their creativity and imagination in a whole new way and an invention that uses water sensors to provide live data on available water sources. Take a look at the full list of winners over on the RSA site.
