Camberwell Graphic Design 2013: A Case Study in Excellence

The world of graphic design is ever-evolving, with new trends and technologies constantly reshaping the landscape. In 2013, the students of Camberwell College of Arts showcased their innovative and forward-thinking approach to design in their Graphic Design Degree Show. This event, which was a culmination of years of study, experimentation, and hard work, was a testament to the students’ creativity and dedication. The show was not just a display of their final projects, but a celebration of their journey in the world of graphic design.

The Degree Show

The degree show was a vibrant and dynamic event, showcasing the students’ unique and diverse design projects. The projects ranged from the commercial to the more experimental, from socially engaged to personally driven. The students were encouraged to put social engagement at the heart of their work and face socially responsible creative challenges. This approach allowed them to develop a personal practice that worked with content and audiences that were important to them.

The Course

The BA Graphic Design course at Camberwell College of Arts, which is a legendary London art institution, is designed to give students a range of skills and knowledge to produce effective design for both social engagement and the future of the design industry. The course encourages a broad and diverse approach to thinking and practice, helping students shape imaginative design solutions through material, media, technologies, and systems of public engagement. The course aligns current social and cultural issues alongside emerging design practices, introducing students to the debates and methodologies at the forefront of contemporary design.

The Catalogue

The catalogue for the degree show was a perfect reflection of the students’ innovative and creative approach to design. The catalogue was printed in a 240x170mm format, with a 4pp cover onto 300gsm uncoated and 98pp text onto 140gsm uncoated. The use of one spot colour throughout the London art catalogue created an intriguingly coherent look and allowed the eye to drift through the pages without working too hard.

Why use four colour printing when just the one will do? The use of one spot colour only creates an intriguingly coherent catalogue and allows the eye to drift through the pages without working too hard.

The Printing Process

The printing process was carried out by Ex Why Zed Print, a company renowned for its high-quality printing services and patient, knowledgable customer service which is perfect for art students who might be print novices. The company’s expertise and dedication to quality ensured that the catalogue was printed to the highest standards, with every detail meticulously taken care of. The catalogue was trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, resulting in a professional and polished final product.

The Response

The response to the degree show and the catalogue was overwhelmingly positive. The students’ work was praised for its creativity and innovation, and the catalogue was lauded for its high-quality printing and design. The degree show was a testament to the students’ hard work and dedication, and it was clear that they had a bright future ahead of them in the world of graphic design.

The Impact

The degree show had a significant impact on the students’ careers, helping them gain exposure and recognition in the design industry. Many of the students went on to secure jobs in top design agencies, while others chose to pursue further studies or start their own design businesses. The degree show was a pivotal moment in their careers, providing them with a platform to showcase their skills and talent to the world.

“The sheer completeness of the identity for Camberwell would make us love it, that is, if we weren’t already sold on the clouds and the students cheeky smiles. Lovely.”

It’s Nice That

Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
