Design Practice III//Negotiated Briefs//LCA Surface Pattern Degree Book & LCA Prospectus 2012.

Yesterday, I picked up the latest copy of the Leeds College of Art 2012/13 prospectus, as designed by 2012 BA (Hons) Graphic Design graduates, Aaron Skipper and Arthur Carey, which proved to be a good source of inspiration for the conceptual and design development of the BA (Hons) Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern degree book which myself, Claudia, Kirsty and Kirsty will be pitching for this year.

I'm a real fan of the subtle spot varnish finish on the bold, geometric type on the cover, and the great utilisation of photography throughout, which really helps to add a more personal touch, something that we are particularly looking to do through interviews with both the students and tutors throughout the degree book. Seeing this design be realised in a contemporary and truly professional- standard print has really inspired me to move forward and hopefully, soon, start making real progress with the development of the conceptual editorial and layout designs.
