Preston Graphic Design Degree Show

Friday 14th June was the private view for the Preston Degree Show. After days, weeks and months of preparation, the night finally came. It was a great turnout and a great night, I hope everyone who came enjoyed themselves. The show was up for a week before being taken down and prepared for D&AD New Blood (2nd-4th July) & our Manchester show at 2022NQ (5th july).

Here are some snaps of the night.

Christmas Jumpers

1

To promote the christmas jumper party for our design school, Andreas and I went about rounding up the tutors of various courses, putting them in christmas jumpers and photographing them. Andreas then tied it all together with some copy and we posted as many as possible around the building.

To lift the Christmas spirit and to strengthen the bond between the different creative departments in the Victoria building, we are inviting everyone to a Christmas jumper get together. But in order to make it relevant to all the students outside the graphic design course, we are just about to launch a poster campaign, featuring tutors from all the different departments dressed in Christmas jumpers.

The aim is to fit at least a hundred students and tutors in the close by pub, having a drink and a laugh together. Hopefully this will help us get to know other students from other departments better leading to more collaboration. Creativity is not a lonely journey.

The Students

A successful and conversation starting project. The night itself was a great way to see off the year with a fantastic turn out.

F1 Research WallFinal year is here. In the run up to Christmas, we have to complete a 1 module project (also known as our Personal Project). It doesn’t have to be about ourselves but we can completely chose what it is about. I am currently researching F1 and the proposed London Grand Prix (read more about that here). To start, I have been looking at f1 identity styles through the years and stumbled upon a vast database of race day programmes. Here are a few of my favourite.

Specsavers

The flag for South Korea was mistakenly displayed at a women’s football match between North Korea and Colombia.

The ad has been booked into the sport and Olympic supplements of the following papers today (27 July): Metro, The Sun, the Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Daily Mirror, The Independent, I, The Guardian and the Daily Express.

Part of the success of this campaign is the instantaneous response from the Specsavers creative team to see an opportunity and get it printed in nationwide paper the next day. The ‘campaign’ has been seen once before when England met Ukraine at the Euros.
