Summer Break

We close for the Summer officially today, but are waiting to hear back on some outstanding competition results that we’ll post about - should we be successful of course!

To those graduates that contacted us about having their work shown on the blog - we’ll be in contact within the next fortnight to detail how we’ll go about doing this - thanks to all those who got back in touch - there’s quite a range of work to show from you all. If any others have changed their minds about wanting to become involved, drop us an email - the email address is available in the ‘View My Complete Profile’ section on the front page of the blog.

Three posts of close-ups or unseen work before we head away for the Summer. The pieces shown above are Anne Marie Smith’s final project from year three of the BA in Design (Communications) course which really deserves a closer look.
