UCA Graphic Design Degree Show 2014: A Print Journey with Ex Why Zed

At Ex Why Zed, we’re all about transforming ideas into print. One of our most exciting projects was the UCA Graphic Design Degree Show 2014. We had the privilege of working with some of the most talented young designers in the UK, helping them showcase their work in a stunning printed catalogue. This case study will take you on a journey through this project, highlighting the creativity, collaboration, and high-quality printing that made it a success.

Man Overboard Show

The UCA Graphic Design Degree Show is a highlight of the academic year, showcasing the work of final year students. In 2014, the show was titled “Man Overboard,” a nod to the creative journey the students had embarked on. The catalogue needed to reflect this theme while providing a platform for each student’s work.

The Printing Process

“Our publications have been sent to print with our good friends at @ExWhyZedPrint, cannot wait to see them arrive next week!……”

At Ex Why Zed we are creative partners. We worked closely with the UCA team to understand their vision and translate it into a printed product. The catalogue was printed on high-quality uncoated paper, with a visually striking cover featuring soft touch lamination, fluorescent spot colour, and debossed title.

A Stunner of a Catalogue

The final product was a beautiful, little book that perfectly encapsulated the creativity and talent of the UCA Graphic Design students. The icons and colour combination of red, white, and blue throughout added cohesion to what was a superbly designed book.

“They’ve created a beautiful, little book”
It’s Nice That

A Last Thought

The UCA Graphic Design Degree Show 2014 was a testament to the power of print. It showcased the incredible talent of the students and the high-quality printing services provided by Ex Why Zed. We’re proud to have been a part of this project and look forward to future collaborations with UCA and other creative institutions.

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.
