Another Escape

Another Escape

The editors have explained their magazine so perfectly that I simply have to quote what they have said: “We all get those moments in life when we experience, if only for a second, something that utterly inspires us; we want to be a musician, a dancer, a bee keeper, a circus performer. It may be the overwhelming desire to collect new experiences, travel, or learn a new skill or language. But what if we actually played on these inspirations-turned-aspirations?” Please take the time to look at this beautiful piece of documentation. It is exactly what the duo (Rachel Maria Taylor and Jody Daunton) has set out to achieve, truly inspiring. Feature

LCC DGC Show

LCC DGC Show

I may be biased, but I really feel the Design for Graphic Communication course at LCC is in a league of it’s own, with heavy focus ‘practically exploring the liminal space between education and creative industry practice’ students are encouraged to focus on design research methods and the whole design process – not just the outcome introducing ‘design thinkers’ to the industry as they graduate. Described by It’s Nice That as a ‘digital calendar of graphic design treats’ the LCC DGC Degree show didn’t disappoint, thanks to the organisation of Rebecca Watson and a beautiful variety of exhibited work from some very talented students.
