2014-15 was a great year for ICDC and to end it on a high we went on our first ever tour to Copenhagen. The capital of simple, practical, and elegant Nordic design, Copenhagen has a lot to offer for anyone interested in design.
We explored the city by day and by night, by land and by sea, by bicycle and by me-mover.

ICDC Annual General Meeting

The time has come to pass the torch. The future of ICDC is in your sweaty palms. The Design Collective has grown massively this year... Perhaps a sign that Imperial is finally filling with some more-rad-than-average people? Who knows/cares. The point is, as an ICDC member your vote counts. Come and choose your future indie/hipster overlords.

Social: Thomas Heatherwick at the Doodle Bar

Thomas Heatherwick will be giving a short talk at Doodle Bar. Ever wanted to draw all over a wall whilst drinking a pint at the pub? The Doodle Bar provides the perfect watering hole for the savvy hipster inside us all. For Imperial students unfamiliar with the word 'social', it means giving up some work time to hang out with some like-minded individuals. Don't be boring. Come. With Friends.
