Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 08.27.29.png

A brilliant conference was held in CSAD at the start of September, staged by the Graphic Design Educators’ Network, in which delegates discussed the future of Graphic Design education.

The conference attracted a hundred or so delegates from the full spectrum of institutions who offer degree programmes in graphic design, keen to explore the physical, intellectual and existential terrain of learning and teaching in graphic design.

Summer Internships: one BAGCers story


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

Penguin Competition Award Ceremony

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).
