Recent graduates from Kingston’s Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture have been featured in Wallpaper magazine’s list of ‘bright young things’ to watch for the future. Jessica Reynolds and Serena Wise had already won the Student of the Year prize at D&AD for their work on the IKEA colour wheel, which shows the whole IKEA product range in colour co-ordinated order. This mention in one of design’s most influential publications is testament to the growing reputation of design at Kingston. James Shaw, who studied Product and Furniture Design is another student to be featured in the same issue for his work that Wallpaper says is “entirely appropriate to their material and manufacture”. James cites the work of Jasper Morrison (another Kingston alumnus) and Andrea Zittel as major influences.
