In the current edition of Hot Press music magazine - that’s the one with Paul Weller on the front - on page 51 in the Frontlines section, you’ll see a great range of student work from the third year Design (Communications) and Visual Communications groups which was undertaken again with David Rooney.
David arrived on Tuesday evening, and the students had to produce publication-ready images by the following Friday morning. There was a bit of a twist this time though - the article that the work was created for hadn’t yet been completed, and the Hot Press editorial team decided to build the article around the work that resulted from David’s sessions with the students.
Congrats to Darragh Kelly who also got to write a short piece for inclusion in the main article, and you can read his particular take on the recession on page 53, entitled ‘Recession Virgins’.
A sincere thank you to David Rooney and the Hot Press team for continuing with this venture - its our third year in print nationally, and provides the students with valuable exposure to the wider community at large.
