A number of Falmouth Illustration students have been showcasing their work at the prestigious D&AD New Blood Graduate Showcase this week. Preparations had been underway back at Falmouth for the last 2-3 weeks Keryn and Sue have done a great job of designing the huge drop banners for the show. All of the show was packed up last Friday and driven down to London on Monday along with the New Designers boards (more of this in the next posting) and Sue, Cally and Nigel hung the show on Tuesday. It was hard work but well worth it. The show looked fantastic in time for the Private View on Tuesday night. The PV night was really crowded but there was a great atmosphere. A number of well known art directors, publishers, designers and agents have already begun to respond well to the Falmouth stand with really positive comments directed towards our graduates. Industry visitors have included Sam Arthur (NoBrow/FlyingEye), Louise Power (Walker Books) and art directors from Wired magazine and Andersen Press.
Students (and their websites) that have taken part in the show are:
Seekan Hui / Lizzie Houldsworth / Kim Meech / Harry Oelman / Jia Li Yu / Rachel Pinnock / Julia de Graaf / Freddie Fuller / Lucy Haslam / Kate Hickey / Jessica Meyrick / Oscar Mitchell / Robert Newberry / Eleanor Hardiman / Ben Flanagan / Sara Hougham-Slade
