HND Review 2009

17 December 2009

On Wednesday night the Design Team held its end-of-year Review in the Hub.

The event, the first of its kind, was conceived and planned by lecturer Helena Good, and featured a selection of print work by both HND Year 2 and Year 1, covering the past 15 weeks of their respective courses. Also on display was a video installation of Year 1 work, and a digital presentation of NC print work.

Students from all three years designed their own t-shirts for the event, using a word or phrase that related to their learning. The evening was a great opportunity for them to relax a little bit, let others look at their work, and reflect on their progress so far.

As well as Department Head Jeff Brown, a number of the Mentors were in attendance, along with a good selection of our former students, who were all clearly impressed by the work our current crop of students are producing.

Santa also made an unlikely appearance and assisted Helena in handing out Secret Santa presents to the 1st and 2nd years.

The next event of this kind will be the Year 2 Industry night, hopefully taking place in the middle of next Semester.
