UWE BA Photography Degree Show 2014: A Testament to Creative Brilliance and Exceptional Print Quality


The UWE BA Photography Degree Show 2014 was a remarkable event that showcased the exceptional talent of the graduating students. The event was a testament to the students’ hard work, creativity, and dedication to their craft. The degree show was a significant event, not just for the students, but also for Ex Why Zed, the printing company responsible for the production of the stunning catalogues that accompanied the show. This case study will delve into the details of the project, highlighting the challenges, solutions, and successes that made it a memorable experience for all involved.

The Challenge: High-Quality Catalogues within a Tight Deadline

The UWE Photography London show was only a few days away, and the students needed high-quality catalogues to showcase their work. The catalogues had to be of a custom size, printed within a tight deadline, and delivered before the event launched at The Oxo Centre. This was a significant challenge, considering the number of catalogues needed and the high-quality standards required.

The Solution: Ex Why Zed’s Expertise and Dedication

Ex Why Zed rose to the challenge, leveraging their expertise in printing and dedication to quality to deliver the catalogues on time. The catalogues were printed on 210x270mm Portrait Books, with a 4pp Cover onto 300gsm Uncoated and Matt Lamination to the outer. The text was printed onto 86pp 170gsm Silk, in four colours throughout. The catalogues were then trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, resulting in a high-quality finish that added a luxury feel to the catalogues.

The stunning catalogues were a hit at the degree show, standing out due to their size – slightly smaller than A4 but still large enough for the super photos to make a big impact. The photography itself was stunning, and the 170gsm Silk added a luxury feel with excellent colour reproduction. The catalogues were delivered in record timing by Ex Why Zed, arriving before the show started.

The Degree Show: A Showcase of Exceptional Talent

The UWE BA Photography Degree Show 2014 was a showcase of exceptional talent. Over 500 Art, Design, and Media graduates showcased their final pieces of work at the event, held at the Bower Ashton Campus, near Ashton Court, and at Spike Island in South Bristol. The show highlighted and celebrated the work of the next generation of creative professionals from UWE Bristol, with work on display from a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including Animation, Art and Media Design by Project, Art and Visual Culture, Drawing and Applied Arts, Fashion, Fine Art, Filmmaking and Creative Media, Graphic Design, Illustration, Journalism, Photography, and Multi-disciplinary Printmaking.

The Catalogues: A Reflection of Individuality and Creativity

With 30+ students round a table, it can prove difficult to decide on a layout. So, this fluid solution let each student solve it on their own page. The important contact details were prominent but unobtrusive in a clean cut sans serif font, and there was still plenty of scope for one or two examples of their work. The catalogues were a reflection of the individuality and creativity of each student, providing a unique platform for them to showcase their work.

Final Thoughts

The UWE BA Photography Degree Show 2014 was a celebration of creativity, talent, and hard work. It was a testament to the potential of the students and the quality of the education they receive at UWE Bristol. The success of the degree show is a testament to the power of collaboration and the importance of choosing the right partners. The role of Ex Why Zed in this success cannot be overstated. Their expertise in printing, commitment to quality, and ability to deliver on a tight deadline were key factors in the success of the degree show. As we look forward to future degree shows at UWE Bristol, we can expect to see the same level of creativity, talent, and excellence that was on display at the UWE BA Photography Degree Show 2014.

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.
