Can post compete with the digital world?
Andrew Ross, Creative Director, Osborne Ross, London
In this practical 3.5 day workshop the brief will be very open, the same brief that we ourselves received from Royal Mail: design a set of stamps which make receiving a piece of post special and which do something which social media cannot.
This is a great challenge for a designer because you are working on a small canvas with a very limited kit of parts.
After a briefing meeting, participants will develop initial sketches to discuss with Andrew. Following this, each individual will refine one or two of their routes which will be drawn up on the computer (Illustrator/Photoshop) into digital visuals for presentation to the group on the Thursday afternoon.
Each participant should have a computer with Illustrator/Photoshop or equivalent.
This workshop will be conducted in English.
It is primarily aimed at BA KD and MA DKS students of all semesters.
