Brighton Graphics and Illustration degree show

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

CR was amid the gently steaming crowd at the opening of the University of Brighton Graphic Design and Illustration show last night, just off London’s Brick Lane. Here’s a few highlights

Josh White designed a lovely poster for a film festival as well as that for the show (this is his photo)

And this is my (much worse) photo

Several of the students prersented album sleeve ideas. This one is for Tales of Mystery and Imagination by The Alan Parsons Project and Edgar Allan Poe, designed by Lucy Pritchett

And this Fleet Foxes album is by Sarah Prismall

Meghan Limbrick‘s 3D work was inspired by the novels of Mervyn Peake

Joe Porter‘s poster celebrates the end of apartheid using elements of the insignia of the nine new provinces of South Africa and the country’s motto that translates as unity in diversity. Not the jigsaw puzzle background

Also from Porter

And this typeface based on a found mosaic from a 1940s hosiery shop

We’ve already featured Kyle Bean‘s Evolution of the Mobile Phone project in our Feed section. His project on disposable technology features cardboard models of electronic devices

This poster from Richard Carey references Edgar Allen Poe’s work with cyphers and cryptography. In 1840 Poe challenged the public, saying that he could crack any code sent to him. The poster details his working method.

Also from Carey, this poster

And this

And two design conference posters from Sarah Hatch

From Kit Humphrey

All round, a very strong show and well worth a look. It’s at the Rag Factory, Heneage St, London E1, until July 6

Here’s another shot of that cool floor (see comments below)
