On their website, Design Week are featuring the new Cardiff and Vale Dementia plan being launched by Cardiff Metropolitan University and Cardiff City Council.

It is part of the £2 million SPIDER project, funded by Interreg IVB through the European Commission, which aims to promote the use of service design in the public sector.

For the dementia project, Cardiff-based consultancy PDR led the strategy development through a series of workshops with senior managers and frontline staff.

The strategy document has been created by Cardiff-based Tidy Studio and an accompanying animation is by recent CSAD BA Graphic Communication graduate Michael Boulton.

CSAD Reader in inclusive design Dr. Wendy Keay-Bright presented work from her latest research project, Somability, at the Wales Millennium Centre as part of Digital Innovation Week Wales. “Dancing with [co] Design”, focused on the potential of camera and projection technologies to extend the typical, sometimes limited, range of movements of people with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). The presentation described co-creation methods and how we are generating graphical representations of body movement in real time.

To enrich the experience of digital innovation, the presentation included a life performance of Somability, designed in partnership with Artis Community. The performance revealed the poignancy and sensitivity of the relationship between carers and service users with profound disabilities, with the software providing the platform for user led experimentation and expression.

CSAD crest in place - July 15th, 2014 -

The new School crest has been added as the finishing touch to the CSAD School building on the Llandaff campus.

The striking steel sculpture built by Gideon Petersen takes pride of place on the outside of the new School building which formally opens in September 2014.

Gideon was awarded the commission to reinterpret the Universities Crest, using hand beaten sheet stainless steel, carefully formed to create the layered effect of the crest. The scale of the final piece is extremely ambitious, over five metres in height, and nearly one tonne in weight. The Crest is befitting of the impressive new CSAD building, and clearly signifies the School’s move to the Llandaff campus this Summer.
