Department of Design

At Goldsmiths design is in our DNA. But we’re not interested in just producing it, we’re interested in defining it.

We see design as a discipline with a dual impact: forecasting the future and reflecting the world now. It’s an influence we take seriously. From capturing scents of everyday life to new concepts for future food production, design is at work tracing every moment of life – but it also has the power to transform it.

We want you to go on to have your own self-sustaining practice that can change over time, so you’ll learn about design not just as a commercial enterprise, but also as a means to question and critique the status quo. And you don’t have to know what kind of a designer you’ll be; we give you the time and the freedom to experiment, use tools, explore materials and discover different modes of making.
