RuTC Graphic Design students work with employers on high-quality art projects

11 May 2021

Over the past academic year, Richmond upon Thames College’s HNC Level 4 and HND Level 5 Graphic Design students have worked on various art projects with a number of local as well as international employers to produce an impressive amount of high-quality artwork.

Together with Twickenham based record store Eel Pie Records, HNC students created vinyl covers for Cuban music compilations. Earlier in the academic year, the students visited Eel Pie Records, which make their own vinyl and compilations, to discuss cover specifications and brief for the project.

Other local projects involving the College’s HNC students included the creation of promotional material for local nursery, Sticky Faces.

HND students had the opportunity to work with Ernst and Young (EY) Earth Team. EY Earth Team help organisations assess and respond to environmental change and offer innovative tools that aim to future-proof sustainability. Together with EY Earth Team, students created entrepreneurial products and services to help save the world.

Over the following few months, Tim Pond, HND/HNC art and design teacher at RuTC, hopes to introduce UI/UX training, which focuses on designing the interface of apps and websites to maximise usability and the user experience.

As part of the students' final projects, the HNC and HND students are now creating an online art gallery called e-Merge. For this, they will turn themselves into an artists’ collective that uses technologies to tell stories through images and design work.
