And we’re off: degree show season is upon us and, as usual, CR will be attempting to bring you some choice cuts from this year’s graduate fayre. First up, Duncan of Jordanstone BA(Hons) Illustration Research & Development grad Lauren Gentry
For her final year project, Lauren “focused on how the application of illustration can be used to develop brand loyalty towards the Transport for London service” (more here) resulting in work such as this mock-up cover for the Guardian Guide
a playful app to tell commuters whether their tube is running late or on time
as well as two posters about the River Thames and its relation to transport in the capital which she also entered into the Serco prize (which we posted about here)
Her work also includes these graphic op ed style pieces for articles on funding cuts and police brutality
