Humanity and Humour
I always look forward to the Royal College of Art show with such excitement because the work is always so imaginative, so forward-thinking; perfection in creativity.
This year, because it was online I was able to see many more works, for instance animation, which I’ve chosen a few examples of in this collection. I just love the humanity, the humour and just good natured creativity. Design can really make a difference to everybody’s lives and make the planet a better place.
