"The course gave us the confidence to make the transition to being professional smoothly, both through its work placement programme and by teaching us that how we think is more important than the technical skills we have."

"We founded PAN in 2011 – we were interested in using our learned design skills to create new and compelling experiences; salient moments in time that would have a lasting effect on people. Our work includes elements of interaction design, building immersive theatrical environments, and creating objects that affect the way people experience their environment.

We have built installations for clients such as Marks and Spencer, Tom Dixon and The British Council in the past year. All of our work is rooted in a philosophy that people value experience over anything else.

Studying at Goldsmiths was very enjoyable, but the design faculty also taught us a lot about critical thinking, and provided us with robust design processes that allowed us to work across many disciplines.

We formed soon after we left Goldsmiths and the course gave us the confidence to make the transition to being professional smoothly, both through its work placement programme and by teaching us that how we think is more important than the technical skills we have."

It was more than a design education, it encouraged us to be inquisitive about the world and to see ourselves as active participants in it. We were taught that design is not just about problem solving, it's about engaging with our environment and getting excited."
