In July 2018 Graphic Design students were set a live project from Thames Valley Police.
In response to a national and local crime initiative, students produced a campaign to highlight Hate Crime under the banner “101conversations”.
Students were briefed by our clients; Jennifer Hill and Lisa Lovell representing Thames Valley Police and they produced designs that were developed through critiques and workshops. The students then pitched their designs back to the clients whereby several were chosen to be produced, printed and featured in a regional campaign.
The project set really inspired our Graphic Design students, and was a rewarding experience for all involved.
Following the success of 101 conversations, in 2019, Thames Valley Police returned to us with their new initiative for the design of an Anti-Knife Crime campaign. Once again, our students rose to the challenge. Several of their campaigns feature in the Summer Exhibition this year, one of which, Jack Lawrence, received a Principal’s commendation, featured amongst the images below.
Graphic Design Lecturer Dan Vine had this to say: "We thank Lisa and her team for their continued support of our students. Projects such as these are invaluable to their design skills and understanding equality and diversity in society.
We very much look forward to collaborating again in the near future".
