The School of Graphic Design at the London College of Communication held its BA (Hons) degree show last week – here are some pieces of work that particularly caught our attention…

The show was titled 5:1, to reflect the five disciplines that the school is divided into: Information Design, Design for Advertising, Typo/graphics, Illustration and Design for Interaction and Moving Image. Shown above is Erica Dorn‘s Anatomy of Intimacy, which she describes as “small-scale sculptural pieces exploring ideas about love and intimacy through anatomical metaphors”.

 

 

Also from Erica Dorn is the Tokyo Travelogue, above, a screen-printed and hand-bound publication featuring a laser-cut cover with transparent pages.

 

 

Leonardo Collina created a series of elegant collages for the Illustration section of 5:1, alongside the piece below.

 

 

 

These two images form part of a project by Elliot Hammer, which “explores the ways in which people live in an ever-changing environment where the natural and the artificial coexist”.

 

Giulio Miglietta exhibited this series of artworks of New York buildings, alongside some delightful book illustration, an example of which is shown below. For more, check out his website.

 

 

Emma Congdon created this packaging and a poster (below) as part of an advertising campaign to promote sewing.

 

Helen Gibbons created a generic woman’s handbag, above, complete with stray boiled sweets and coins, in the style of an airfix kit for the Interactive & Moving Image course.

 

 

Alec Strang, who is already represented by It’s All True illustration agency, exhibited a beautiful set of drawings, one of which is shown above.

 

 

 

Finally, Tomimi Sayuda took the legendary art of photocopying one’s posterior to new levels with iBum, a chair which, when sat upon will scan your rear and then produce a copy of it from the side. As Ms Sayuda says “The arse is the window of the soul. Here’s a video of it working.
