'This website celebrates the work of 75 students and 43 projects that have been produced during the largest global pandemic for a century. These students have been spread across the world and have communicated with us through screens for most of their time at the RCA.
Yet, the projects that are shown here are some of the finest projects we've seen on this pioneering, world leading, service design course. Tackling issues large and small, solving the problems of now and envisioning our future, they give us new ideas and hope that we can create a more resilient, robust and fair future.
This year I asked the students to show what they stand for and they have, magnificently. With our amazing industry partners who provide so much support for the projects, the students have observed, interacted and found deep insights in so many vital and important topics and gone on to develop creative responses that lead us forward.
These projects don't just visualise a desirable future, students have gone out and prototyped, tested and proven that future. I believe, despite the amazing challenges they have faced, that the 2021 cohort have set a new standard for service design. Take some time to see how they are facing forward to the opportunities ahead.'
