Kingston's mobile degree show in a van
Working on the principle that if you can't get the punters to your event, you could always bring the event to them, Kingston graphic design graduates are touring London this week in a van featuring work from their degree show
The van (which was loaned to the students by the KK Outlet gallery) will be parked in various locations in the capital from Monday to Thursday this week starting in the Covent Garden Piazza at Monday lunchtime: you can follow its movements on Twitter @takeshape2012.
The outside is covered in Velcro pads allowing different graphics to be fixed to the sides (including a message to CR editor Patrick Burgoyne, see top). Inside is moving image work from the final year show, which is titled Take Shape 2012.
The show will be at the Dray Walk Gallery, London E1, from July 5 to 9. The show website is here

CR in Print
The July issue of Creative Review features a piece exploring the past and future of the dingbat. Plus a look at the potential of paper electronics and printed apps, how a new generation of documentary filmmakers is making use of the web, current logo trends, a review of MoMA New York's group show on art and type, thoughts on how design may help save Greece and much more. Also, in Monograph this month we showcase a host of rejected design work put together by two Kingston students.

Nice idea but I can't help thinking of the Chewin' the Fat version:
Did you heckle Kingston?
Such a good idea! Proud to be a Kingston Graphic Design student, we have big shoes to fill next year!
Being based in Newcastle, We (Northumbia '01 – I feel old) did this but with a double decker bus. We "commuted" to Manchester, Liverpool and London in the bus, knocking on the doors of design companies trying to persuade them to see our traveling exhibit. Tough work but it was certainly memorable with the work gradually peeling off our mount board as the bus heated up and the spray faded. We were known as the degree show with a touring bus though.
Love the idea of the velcro strips on the outside. Good work Kingston.
