• University of Chester Degree Show 2012 - Untitled

    Everything we buy has an effective impact on the environment, and Buy Nothing Day highlights the environmental and ethical consequences of consumerism. As part of one of my final major projects, I have decided to create a public awareness campaign for Buy Nothing Day.The aim of this campaign is to encourage consumers to save their fruit and vegetable seeds, shop less and grow their own. Overall this will have a longer lasting impact on society than it would to influence consumers to not shop at all for one day.

    The civilisation process of the human race began about 10,000 years ago on the day someone recognised and collected seeds from the wild and then purposefully sowed them in order to grow some of their own food.

    (I do have a photo of everyone next to their exhibitions but I am sure you have got to this point of the post and probably a bit bored of this now? The show launch was a massive success, really enjoyed the evening, full of lots of proud parents and family members who had surrounded to see what all the constant stressing was about.

    Showcasing students work from Fine Art, Photography and Graphic Design.

    If you were unable to make it to the show, feel free to take a nosey at some of the photographs I have taken. As a little souvenir, I managed to collect one of everyone’s business cards on show before they were all taken. It’s nice looking at the business cards together, it helps define the difference in each of our design styles. 

    Above is my exhibition, you can read more about it here.

    I really liked this piece by Mike Goldsworthy , It has had a really good response!

    I could not really pin point a favourite from Graphic Design, each were different and worked in their own way, we all worked really hard so I think we each deserve equal recognition in my opinion. 

    I really liked the idea of this poster by Alice Nester. This was a self-negotiated brief and one that was personal to her with what she intends to do after her Graphic Design degree. The poster was encouraging those to foster a child, and the illustration on the poster is really effective and caught my eye straight away. The sweets went down a treat too...

    We loved this piece from Fine Art!
