The Poundshop, set up by RCA graduates, George Wu, Sarah Gottlieb and Sara Melin are working with Year 3 NUCA Illustration students to produce lots of wonderful design ideas. The aim of The Poundshop is to spread design to a wider audience by making it accessible through price and engagement and has worked with many cultural institutions such as Mother London, The Shoreditch Trust, Somerset House and The Architecture Foundation.

The gallery at NUCA is showing an exhibition titled Alphabet by Michael Craig-Martin, which closes this Saturday - 13 October 2012. Craig-Martin taught many of the YBAs (Young British Artists - Damian Hirst, Sarah Lucas et al.) at Goldsmiths University, London. In Alphabet Craig-Martin plays with the idea of the ABC children's primer. Instead of a direct 'A is for Apple', 'B is for Ball', the relationship between the letter and image is more ambiguous and requires some guesswork. More information
