If you’re in any doubt about the value of an internship, just take a look at the opportunity offered to 3rd year BAGCer Toby over the Summer.
Toby worked at Accelerate Digital for 2 months, collaborating on some very exciting briefs, such as a Fashion Week Lookbook and a booklet designed to share the stories of the talented young graduates and their journey through the Arch Apprentices programme.
See a couple of the projects on his website – http://tobycottrelldesign.com/projects

Chosen by designers, this list makes for interesting reading – all vinyl covers. I wonder if greatest CD covers should be considered as a separate list?
These high-def 3-D models of objects from the ship, the Mary Rose (especially the skull!) are pretty amazing (definitely worth looking at full-screen).
Get your typographic fix over on TypeToken. Lots of posts and articles on typography, theory, visual language and identity.
Here are a few pics from the Penguin Random House Design Award ceremony held in London on the 22nd June 2016.
BAGCers Callum Richards and Jack Rowbottom were both nominated and attended the ceremony with lecturers Ian Weir and David Wrenne. It looked like a glamorous affair, and a good time was had by all (transl: there was a free bar).
