Scouting Magazine project for Third Year Visual Communication Students
Third year Visual Communication Student are excited to be working with Immediate Media and Scouting Magazine. Students designs for a double page spread to be featured in the Scouting magazine have been shortlisted and are featured here. One selected design will go to print in the forthcoming winter issue.
"The opportunity for students to engage with a live, editorial design brief with limited constraints, and possibilities to interpret the copy and critically generate creative type and image responses perfectly aligns to our course ethos. Coupled with the experience of resolving a ‘real-world’ design problem, the prize of published design work is generating a buzz in our design studios. This has also enabled in-class discussions about the Scouts as an organisation and designing for different audiences, in addition to conceptual development and advanced production techniques" said Marc Austin Course Leader or Graphic Design
"The Graphic Design course at Wolverhampton School of Art has a long history of working with worthwhile causes and building relationships that enable the transfer of knowledge and professional experience between students and clients. Scouting Magazine offers the potential for such a relationship; the reputation and longevity of the Scout Association, exciting and inspirational projects and charitable work preformed by the Scouts, and the appeal of designing for such a diverse and broad-reaching publication provides students with a live project that they can immerse themselves in. In addition, the flexibility and openness of staff from both Scouting Magazine and Immediate Media has meant that we have been able to approach this project from a professional and educational context." continued Marc Austin.
Congratulations to all those who have taken part in this live brief.
