We were delighted to welcome a visiting lecturer here this week – Alistair Campbell, Creative Director at Guardian Labs http://guardianlabs.theguardian.com (the branded content division of The Guardian newspaper). Here is his personal portfolio link: variousprojects.co.uk
Alistair had set our students a brief to work on and came down to the studio to meet everyone in person and give some feedback on the work they’d done for it. The team with the best answer to the brief is guaranteed a placement at Guardian Labs later in the year. He spent the following day giving general portfolio crits, before flying back to London.
It was great that Alistair could spare time from his busy working schedule to come down and give the students the benefit of his considerable experience and his opinions on the work he saw. The class loved it.
