I thought I would share a few pictures from my degree show at Hoxton Arches in London, which took place last week.
Planning and designing the identity for the degree show was quite a long and sometimes stressful task. We had the name and concept (showcasing the frameworks of the design process) at the beginning of the year, but visualising it was difficult and we went through a lot of designs as well as coped with a lot of setbacks that were out of our hands. Despite this, we were really happy with the final designs and the number of outcomes we produced; including tote bags, a catalogue, an A1 foldout poster, name and description labels, vinyl signage, a gif for social media, invites, and postcards.
My personal role was to write some copy for the catalogue and to proofread and edit each student’s individual profiles. I also created designs for vinyl stickers and lettering that could were used as the show’s signage, and a poster page for the A1 fold out.
It was really great to see my work up on display, and I think the space looked really exciting because everyone’s work is so varied.
Even though it was difficult at times, I’m glad I volunteered to be part of the degree show team because I’ve gained a lot of experience in different areas of a large-scale design project, as well as enjoyed working as part of a team to deal with tough deadlines and overcome problems.
I’m extremely proud of how the show turned out and the private view was a lovely way to spend my 21st birthday and celebrate 3 years of hard work towards my degree.
