CR September issue
The September issue of CR is all about this year's graduates. We have given all our feature space over to eight eager, fresh-faced young creative types yearning to make their mark
James Callahan and Joe Keirs from University of Leeds
Tomomi Sayuda from LCC
Mark Boardman from Falmouth
Tom Lovell from Lincoln (who also designed the cover this month)
And Eilin Bergum from Ravensbourne
As well as showing their work, we have also asked them about their hopes, dreams and fears about starting a career in visual communication. All of them will be showing their work at an exhibition that we are staging with Mother at Downstairs at Mother from September 3 to 12 (more on this soon)
Also in this issue....
We have the first in a series of exclusive extracts from Adrian Shaughnessy's new book, Graphic Design: A User's Manual
Rick Poynor reports from the Rencontres d'Arles photography festival
magCulture's Jeremy Leslie begins his new monthly column on magazines, plus James McNulty asks what ad agencies mean by the 'big idea'
Guy Bird reveals why Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant's book Subway Art (recently released in a 25th anniversary edition) was such an influence
And Gordon Comstock discusses the world of chatty objects
And you can win an Olympus Pen digital SLR worth £700 in our Gallery competition
The September issue of CR is out on August 27

Nice! Keep creating! :)
Great to see that every of these graduates has a website. I remember going to degree shows only a couple of years ago and being amazed that hardly anyone had one - which meant there was no way to see their work elsewhere, or, crucially, to show it to others. I hope it's now widespread, beyond just the ones you've picked.
Olympus Pen!? I an entering THAT.
I look forward to picking this up and checking out the competition!
This looks great, well done Tom! Good to see someone from Lincoln in there!
I remember all the buzz about Tom Lovell's Keep-Us Busy project. This guy clearlyhas a bright future ahead of him. Can't wait to have a sneek at the rest of these people.
Let's just hope they don't all move to/stay in London...
Fantastic show of grad work! Congrats to all involved.
Some great work. Good luck to all of you. Exciting times, I remember when i graduated...
Great to see some fantastic graduates, we're currently on the lookout for talented junior creatives and animators, get in touch with us if that sounds like you!
Good work but a shame the spread of graduates couldn't have been better...one from each institute instead of 2 from Leeds and Kingston and at least one from Scotland. Just my two cents.
There are two from Leeds and two from Kingston because they work in teams - we couldn't exactly take one and not the other
guess this is the sort of standard I'll be aiming for in my final yr, very nice work guys
Given the situation most graduates find themselves in, the back cover should perhaps read 'free labour inside'.
nice work tom and matt!
Why are the extras from 'Shaun of the Dead' on the front cover of CR?
It's seriously freaking me out like a bad CV.
I don't think that back cover message is doing other graduates and entry-level folks any favours at all...
I'm really happy for the graduates for being able to get someone like CR to turn their focus on them. FINALLY!
It took a financial crises to get them to question 'What are all the students going to do when they graduate??"
Each year there are some great students that enter the working creative world, and we should praise the ones that have worked so hard to get there for 3 years (if not more).
Hopefully with some publicity from CR these talented individuals will get payed and appreciated for their talent.
But what about the talent from last year who are still struggling to be seen? And will next years talent get this kind of praise? The credit crunch has and will effect them as well..
Someone from Lincoln, very well done Tom!
I agree it's fantastic to see CR giving students the publicity and opportunity to show off their creative talent. It'd be great to see something similar to this issue consistently published by CR in a similar style to the Annuals we see each year.
Looks like a good issue - anything that gives students a leg up.
Did you guys offer a placement at the magazine?
Well done for giving there graduates a place to show off there work to the world.
