Falmouth Illustration Students Visit ‘Human After All’, Dorling Kindersley & Dutch Uncle Agency

Thursday saw the final visits for the week. Sue Clarke took seven students to Design Group ‘Human After All‘. This company has been involved in a variety of innovative projects in recent years. Students were asked to create their own Christmas cards form a variety of rubber stamps that were created for a recent Ad campaign. As well as gaining really relevant knowledge of the design process, a  lot of fun was had by all.

Straight after the Human After All visit Sue had to rush back to Russell Square to pick up nine students for the visit to Dorling Kindersley. DK are based in the same building as Penguin Books and have employed a number of Falmouth students over recent years as paper engineers. It was fascinating to get an insight into this important publisher of non fiction books. Many thanks to the team from DK for their time.

Finally Rachel took nine students to the Dutch Uncle illustration agency. Dutch Uncle was founded in 2005 and has become known as the home of some of the worlds best illustrators. As well as London it has offices in Tokyo and New York. Students were treated to a fantastic overview of the industry by the Agency Founder, Helen Crowley and creative Director, Dan Crichlow. A really great visit that ended with students being given a number of freebies that included beautiful portfolio stands. We have decided to refer to these as ‘Dutch Uncles’ or ‘Duncles’ for short. Many thanks to Helen and Dan…
