Design Event / Toolbox Project

13 December 2011

Some images from our recent Event Night, which was a great success. Graduates, mentors, tutors and of course HND 1and HND 2 and students got together for a series of short talks and a great 1-hour project, all in celebration of their respective connections to our HND Graphic Design course.

For the project, a total of 12 teams put their creative minds together to come up with a 'graduate toolbox' which could be issued to design students as they take their first steps out into the commercial world. Our team filmed the whole event, and clips of some of the presentations will soon get posted up here. Click any image to view them all in lightbox.

Event Night, Dec 7th

5 December 2011

We are just about there with preparations for our event night on Wed Dec 7th. The festivities will take place in H001/2 (the lecture theaters just behind the Hub), and a sizeable number of former graduates have confirmed that they'll be attending.

HND 1 and 2 will be sporting our traditional white and black t-shirts, and a full catering service will be provided. The itinerary will hopefully be as follows:

From 6pm - arrival, photos, food and drink, then a schedule of short events, including a welcome from Helena Good and presentations by Iain Lauder, Redpath, and Hannah Bloomfield, Multiply.

There will then be an awesome one hour project, plus feedback, followed by presentations by Ian Kirkby, Lewis and Emma Hart, Story.

Finally, some more food, drink and photos to end the evening around about 8.30pm
