The Design Academy Eindhoven’s 2018 graduation projects had a lot to teach us, from remembering what we already know (waste not, want not) to inviting us to explore new, innovative creative processes. The artists’ works carried meaningful messages, some poignant, some uplifting, some that left us with more questions than answers.
Ultimately, the graduation projects
are an interesting showcase of current design trends: an increased interest in sustainability, a look to new and interesting textures and materials, and a focus on blending form and function without detracting from either. If you’ve been looking for design inspiration to freshen up your space, it’s worth taking the time to click through these projects and noticing what piques your interest. With so much variety and so many different mediums covered, it’s a stimulating digital tour of some of the minds entering the professional design space this year, to say the least.
