As the 2016/17 academic year reaches it’s finale, BA Graphic Arts students have achieved some notable successes.

Here is a round up.

Oscar Warr, has been accepted onto the MA in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art. Hoda Khoja was selected for a ‘One Man’s Waste’ sustainable design award by the Royal Society of the Arts, she was also shortlisted for the ‘Kennedys’ (advertising agency, Wieden & Kennedys prestigious Internship scheme). Jess Shaw (Merit) and Emily Stewart (Pass) were accredited by the International Society for Typographic Design (ISTD). Students from our illustration pathway have also been making a name for themselves, establishing ‘this is Not Edible’ a loose collective that launched at the HiFest festival in Hastings. There have also been individual successes. Sophie Khan was selected to take part in the Secret 7” exhibition at the Sonos Studios in Shoreditch, alongside the likes of Anthony Burrill, Paul Smith and Anish Kapoor. Ollie Sylvester, Keke Wang, Holly Walsh, Sophie Khan, WuFan and Helen Sin had their work featured in 2 issues of Anorak magazine and Ollie exhibited in the ‘Drawing Imaginarium’ at Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the D&AD Festival at Spitalfields.

Once degree shows have been hung and work assessed, we will feature each of these projects in more detail on the blog.
