The School of Communication Design hosted a taster day for students of Bodmin College on Tuesday 22 Nov, this is part of an ongoing relationship to support and host students in our Graphic Design BA(Hons) course .
The students accompanied by their tutor Jamie Baldwin were given an introductory talk by Bryan Clark, Head of Graphic Design, followed by a one-day narrative brief. They were invited to create a book interpreting the story of Red Riding Hood using only typography and shape along with a limited colour palette of red, black and white. Working with staff, Nikki Salkeld (Senior Lecturer and Course Coordinator for Stage 1) and Darren Whittington (Senior Lecturer with Graphic design and Advertising) as well as first year students, they had to reach a deadline of 3pm. There were some very beautiful and considered outcomes which, demonstrated breadth and creative enquiry.
