Ravensbourne Graphic Design Degree Show Catalogues: An Eye-Catching Cover

The Ravensbourne Graphic Design Degree Show is a much-anticipated event in the design world, showcasing the innovative and creative work of the upcoming talents in the field. The show is a culmination of years of hard work, creativity, and passion, and the catalogues produced for the event are a testament to this journey.

A Unique Blend of Creativity and Precision

The catalogues for the Ravensbourne Graphic Design Degree Show are a perfect blend of creativity and precision. The size of the books, 230x180mm, makes them easy to handle and browse through. The cover, printed on 170gsm Uncoated paper, is lighter than usual, giving the catalogues a magazine-like feel. The use of two colour double sided: PMS811u and PMS 876u, adds a unique touch to the design.

The 72pp text is printed onto 90gsm Uncoated paper, with CMYK+One Spot Colour throughout. The catalogues are then trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, resulting in a sleek and professional finish. The choice of paper weight and spot colour makes these catalogues really striking, proving that sometimes, less can indeed be more.

Showcasing Student Work

Each student gets a double page spread in the catalogue, giving them ample space to showcase a number of examples of their work. This not only provides a platform for the students to display their creativity and skill, but also adds variety and interest to the catalogue. The use of the fluorescent spot colour throughout adds unity and coherence to the design.

A Cover That Tells a Story

The cover of the catalogue features a wrap-around image of the whole year group, a visual punchline delivered on the inside covers. This not only makes printing easier, but also adds a personal touch to the catalogue. After all, who doesn’t love a year group team photo on the cover of a book? Printed in the mid 2010s, you could say this is a forerunner to the selfie craze!

Why It Works

The Ravensbourne Graphic Design Degree Show Catalogues work because they are not just a collection of student work, but a carefully curated showcase of creativity and precision. The choice of size, paper weight, and spot colour, along with the unique design elements, make these catalogues a joy to browse through.

The catalogues were printed by Ex Why Zed, a company known for their high-quality photobook printing. They have a history of working with educational institutions and have printed catalogues for other degree shows, such as the Loughborough Graphic Communication Illustration, Liverpool John Moores Graphic Design 2015, and Birmingham City University Graphic Design Books.

The Power of Print in the Digital Age

In an age where digital media dominates, the Ravensbourne Graphic Design Degree Show Catalogues remind us of the power of print. The tactile experience of flipping through a catalogue, the visual impact of a well-designed layout, and the lasting impression of a physical book – these are things that digital media cannot replicate.

The catalogues are more than just a collection of student work. They are a physical representation of the creativity, passion, and hard work that goes into a degree in graphic design. They are a testament to the power of print, and a reminder of why print will always have a place in the world of design.

Whether you’re planning a degree show, a fine art degree show, or a graphic design degree show, Ex Why Zed has the expertise and experience to deliver high-quality, professional catalogues that make an impact. Our work with Ravensbourne College is just one example of their commitment to quality and precision.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
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.
