This year's New Designers was the weakest we've seen in a long time. The multi-institution show is primarly focussed on product design, with its visual communication tucked away in smaller rooms separated from the main hall – but usually we see a substantial amount of high-quality graphic design, illustration and animation. In the 2015 show, these gems are few and far between.

So we scoured every area of every hall and even took the time to Google graduates who haven't provided working websites or contact details (who are normally the first to be culled when we pick our 'best new grads' features) to bring you these eight.

Illustrators who mix simple shapes with bright flat colours have been very popular recently, and Ana Jaks was the best new graduate at the show working in this 'genre'.
