I would be interested to see how many positive articles the Guardian ran on UK HE design education and its economic merits over the last few years.

The press needs to wake up to the ongoing destruction of UK Design Education! Short sighted profit and misunderstanding around design education have seen many Art and Design Schools adjusted (by management) to fit models that they think suit smaller floor space and require just a “Mac”. Of course anyone that teaches in the creative industries actually knows this is pure nonsense for any creative discipline be it games design (aka seen as digital) or jewellery. (aka seen as physical)
Diogo Lopes a recent Graduate’s Final Major Project was a game and custom built cabinet and experience.
