D&AD Student Awards

Magnus Pettersen (MA Industrial Design, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) won the first prize in the D&AD Student Awards ‘Social Design’ component. Brief was set by the Design Council that asked students to create a product, service or communication piece designed to specifically reduce crime. BLABR_stand acts as both bike rack and meeting point, so that people gathering there also keep an eye on the bikes, thus deterring thieves. The BLABR_ stand was also a result of the Holborn Unlocked brief set by Design Against Crime Research Centre to MA Industrial Design course.
