As you may know I as well as being a graphic designer – I also teach at Selby College and every year the second year students have a final exhibition to show off their fabulous work. Normally, we get the students to design the poster as a competition but time was indeed pressing and so I spent an hour at my mac, producing some exhibition posters and loved every minute of it. Tutors loved the designs, vote was taken and one design was chosen – great to work with like-minded, decision making and slightly mad, creative people!
I have always been inspired by the fantastic Swiss Style Movement, also know as the International Typographic Style that developed in Switzerland in the 1950s. Joseph Müller-Brockmann was one of the famous graphic designers linked to the movement and a great inspiration. The style is known for it cleanliness, readability and primarily used sans serif typography. You will have seen many inspired designs from this style and here are mine.
The exhibition is an opportunity to come and be inspired yourself. The students are from a wide range of courses, A level Media Studies, Art & Design, Diploma in Art & Design, Extended Diploma in Fashion & Clothing, Art & Design, Creative Media Production, Theatre Studies and this year for the first time Music Technology – so it’s a great evening to see what we have been up to!
Please do come along 14th June 2012, 6-8pm Renaissance Building, Selby College.
