Reflecting on ideas and practice is essential to your development as a designer.
We'd like you to take stock and look at what you have achieved so far on the course. Consider who you are, where do you live, what inspires you and how do you approach projects.
This year we'll be looking at London's cultural stock, Earths depleting stock and how to create a circular design and manufacturing process.
Plus there will be some stock that needs producing.
