Graphic Design students work with bereavement charity

Posted on

Graphic Design Level 3 Diploma students have been working on a professional brief to design posters for a bereavement charity. Course team leader Emma Melton explains:

“I was contacted by the charity My Blue Heart, whose mission is to help people who are going through bereavement.  It was set up by family of a local girl, Jess, who passed away from bone cancer in 2014 at the age of 14. The charity asked if our students could design a poster/flyer for an art exhibition they are organising in September.

“Twenty Graphic Design Year 1 students were given the brief and had a week to produce a poster.

“Two students were chosen to have their poster used by the charity, Donald Marks and Florence Rooke. Both posters will be printed and used as advertising material and will also be used as advertisements in the East Anglian Daily Times and the Clare Focus magazine, which is distributed to 10,000 people. Another student, Stephanie Parsons, also had part of her design selected to be printed on the charity’s stationery.

“It was a very fulfilling project and a great opportunity for the students to have experience of a real-life brief.”
