Tis the degree show season and, now that we have sent our July issue happily off to print, CR’s editorial team is attempting to get out and about to as many of them as possible. First up, Central St Martins BA (hons) Graphic Design
Among the highlights was this portrait of Amy Winehouse by Katie Anne Harrison, part of a series looking at the self-destructive tendencies of certain female celebrities. firstname.lastname@example.org
Clara Brizard produced this set of die-cut posters featuring German type email@example.com
We also liked The Italic Poster by Eivind Søreng Molvaer
And this amazing letterpress installation on the history of the book by Diego Ulrich
And, in the Advertising section, this idea for an Orange campaign from Helga Stentzel caught our eye. Graphic posters on the platforms of the DLR are transformed into symbols of happiness and future brightness when viewed through orange-tinted glass in the train windows firstname.lastname@example.org
The show is at The Bargehouse (just behind the Oxo Tower), Barge House St, London SE1 9PH, but closes today at 6pm.
We will be posting from more degree shows over the next two weeks plus, in CR’s September issue, we will be devoting 12 pages to work from this year’s graduates.
