MA Narrative Environments’ Alumni


MA Narrative Environments extends and enhances employment opportunities in sectors such as exhibition, event, retail and interpretive design, visitor centre development, curating, scripting and creative direction, film and TV production, architecture, new media and interaction design, brand development and design for corporate environments.

Our graduates find work in many different fields and we have a substantial network of alumni across the world who can offer advice and employment to new graduates.

The Life and Death Toolkit



The Life and Death Toolkit helps design students to reflect on the sustainability of their projects and make informed decisions throughout their design process. The toolkit consists of two sets of prompt cards and a worksheet. The prompt cards suggest topics to consider while the worksheet is used by students to record their reflections and evaluate the sustainability of their project.

Brain Waves


Brain Waves at the Lethaby Gallery presents the work of CSM’s leading design graduates, including our Narrative Environments grads Nele Vos, Julie Howell and Vilma Luostarinen.

The exhibition explores the varieties of design intelligence they deploy in their work as they engage with uncertain futures. New futures are considered through the themes of ‘empathic imagination’, ‘creative forensics’, ‘haptic thinking’ and ‘sense making’.

Under Development – Designersblock


MA Narrative Environments grads Mamiko Yamazaki, Lea Nagano and Ye Won Shim have been selected by Designersblock to show their graduation projects at ‘Under Development’!

‘Under Development’ is built around the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, and showcases designers and creatives working within and around these areas.

The exhibition is part of London Design Festival at Oxo Tower Wharf, on until 25 September 2016.

City in Motion


Designing Active Urban Environments

A collaboration between Central Saint Martins’ MA Narrative Environments and Arup Foresight + Research + Innovation.

Arup Foresight + Research + Innovation
Arup Foresight specialise on identifying and analysing trends shaping the future of the built environment. Their work combines corporate foresight with Arup’s global engineering and consulting expertise and they aim to translate trends into actionable insights that support strategy, design and innovation processes.

Rethinking Malaga


The Narrative Environments course at CSM has a long-term research approach in exploring European cities on the edge of the continent, where Europe meet other continents, cultures ideas and systems. How does such cities work? What is their identity? What is the impact of other, non-European cultures on such a city? How can such cities be improved? Where are also limitations to such an approach?
