It has been a great success and we are thrilled to announce our favourite pieces of work produced by the recent Graphic Design and Illustration graduates from the University of Brighton. The show ended on Sunday under the baking July sun of London and here are our picks from last week at the Bargehouse on South Bank.
In alphabetical order:
We love how Amy Reardon creates her dreamlike patterns and playful images using only simple lines and dots and other-worldly characters. Her illustrations are a perfect blend of ideas on human conditions and thoughts surrounding modern culture and new technology. No need to say much, Amy’s imagery is definitely something fun and worth-exploring.
Angela Hadrill’s work revolves around themes that explore the relationships between nature and humankind. Her illustrations are rich with beautiful colour palettes and no doubt we are blown away by her delicate drawings that embrace a beautiful sense of calm and tranquility.
Another illustration prodigy. Charlie Barrows brings something very warming to the table with her delicate plant-centric illustrations. She is centring her work on image-making and collage and they are all developed from a strong conceptual basis. She also likes to challenge how people communicate and to play around the idea of exposure.
Marcus Connor’s posters encompass everything good posters should be: clean, simple, and straightforward. He knows exactly how to involve illustration into graphic design and we are totally smitten with his sharp and clean results.
Rachel Dalton’s publications are a result of an exploration of different subjects such as olfaction, architecture and cryptography. Her design skill is outstanding and with her excellent use of image and text, the outcomes are undoubtedly a splendid example of sleek design and perfect layout.
And of course, we have to thank Hannah Blows for her typeface ‘Kink’ which was designed to be used as a show identity, the branding and the wayfinding for the Brighton Show 2014. How brilliant!
