As part of the Year 2 Graphic Design Innovation project led by Senior Lecturer Becky Ford, there was a live brief set by Dr Oliver Williams from the University of Bath.
It required students to take one of seven key themes from Oliver's PhD thesis and translate it into an impactful poster. The thesis's research revealed themes of health inequality and social injustice; the students explored and experimented with political visual languages in order to effectively communicate their message.
20 final posters were selected from this exhibition and they will travel around the country in a touring exhibition with Oliver as he shares his research with the public.
Furthermore Nadia Vizzacaja's work (below) has been selected to be shown in Bath's ICIA Edge Gallery for two weeks in May in the Images of Research exhibition.
Ravensbourne students from a range of courses were invited by Barclays to develop a symbol to be ubiquitous, cross-cultural and a hallmark for data privacy across the world. We're pleased to announce that the Year 2 Graphic Design student Tom Reynolds has won!
Communicating the idea of concealing, the winning mark can be understood and read in different ways. From a birds eye view it is intended to look like a polling booth with a curtain. From a side angle it looks to be a hole-in-the-wall ATM. Tom showed a good understanding of cross media application.
The second prize went to Year 2 Graphic Design student Milan Ozegovic. Milan looked at how the trust mark could represent security, privacy and personal data all in one. Combining the shape of a person and a shield he created an iconic mark which represents the security of Barclays' customers data.
Congratulations to both students!
