This will be the final post from what has been a really successful study trip. Thanks to all the art directors, designers, publishers and agents that gave up their time to see our students. Everyone gained an enormous amount from the experience. Thanks to the students for asking great questions during the visits. Also of course thanks to Sue Clarke and Rachel Dunn for putting so much effort into organising the trip. Here is a final image of students discussing the ‘Face Stamp’ project at design group ‘Human After All’
A group of 8 students have just visited 2 senior art directors at the literary division of Harper Collins. Designer Julian Humphries hosted what turned out to be an extremely valuable visit. The visit revolved around how illustrators are sourced, the commissioning process, the role of agencies and more. Many thanks to Harper Collins for giving our students the opportunity to visit.
11 students have just had a great visit to Artworks Illustration Agency in Hoxton. Lucy and Alex, both experienced Illustration agents discussed a broad range of issues from their perspective. Really informative. Many thanks to Lucy and Alex for taking some time out of their working day.
We have just arrived at our usual accommodation, the famous Generator ion Bloomsbury to find they have revamped the interior of Hostel in a really creative and successful way. There is a great atmosphere here now. We start our visits in the morning.
