The University of Lincoln ‘Discover Science’ brochure was delivered this week. It’s looking great. A matt laminated cover and gloss spot uv have been used to enhance the cover with high gloss text pages to provide a really crisp punchy publication. A big thumbs up to Mike who lead the design, it was his first big print job and he’s done exceptionally well.
A beautiful publication has just been delivered. The Lincoln Story tells the history of Lincoln, it’s heritage and the development of the university. Printed on a Munken Lynx throughout, the foil blocked front and back gate folded covers show two maps of Lincoln. Internal pages fold out to provide a canvas for panoramic imagery, celebrating the magnificent architecture the city has to offer, we’re all chuffed to bits with it!
Friday saw the delivery of a large flexi banner and brochure for the faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at the University of Lincoln. We soon realised our reception area was a little too small for the banner which spans over 5 metres when fully expanded. It will definitely set Lincoln apart at some of the forthcoming UCAS fairs. To accompany the stand we designed a brochure based on a broadsheet style which focused on each course individually – 6000 if these are downstairs at the moment, mmmm the smell of print!
A “really well done” goes out to the 1st and 2nd year Interactive Design students from the University of Lincoln. We set a collaborative project where the 2nd years were teamed up with the fresher 1st years. They had to produce 50 bespoke zines each, to be sold between 3-5 pounds and then finally presented to, and critiqued by the 3rd years! There was some really interesting and diverse work, both creatively and intellectually. The night was a great success, and as everyone had a few more drinks the crits became even more interesting, there’s nothing like loosing those inhibitions and saying exactly what you think… refreshing and informative. I think the next step is for the 1st year students to crit the 3rd year students and see how that pans out? Keep up the good work. You can see updates of there work at www.isbg.co.uk
Studio View have been awarded the design and print for the University of Lincoln’s ‘Lincoln Story’ brochure. Well done to all the team who worked on the pitch. The brochure takes a unique format and showcases some stunning bespoke illustrations. We’ll keep you posted on progress.
As part of our ongoing relationship with the University of Lincoln, Jim recently involved GF Smith in a new collaborative project with our Interactive Design students. (We’ve been actively helping develop the course structure over the past 5 years!)
Paper merchants GF Smith offered the chance to work on a five week long ‘live brief’ to create designs to promote the Colorplan line of papers and boards. Mark from GF Smith took some time out of his busy schedule to visit the University and deliver the creative project. The brief was:
‘Using a single print colour and incorporating paper engineering techniques, produce a piece of marketing material aimed at graphic designers that demonstrates the excellence of Colorplan for a wide range of processes and applications…the piece must be able to grab the interest of a creative professional through surprise, originality, wit, beautiful design or sheer genius.’
No pressure! – Students produced a range of successful and creative responses, a few even inspiring. This was a great example of why live commercial briefs are so valuable, enabling students to engage with the industry and produce innovative results.
Congratulations to Fu – he won the ‘best design’ title, winning a limited edition Colorplan A0 poster and a Strathmore promotional stationery pack. Below is a shot of the crit session, along with pictures of Fu’s winning response.
Well done to the students, and thanks again to Mark at GF Smith.
