Graphic Design students shortlisted in prestigious initiative

Two Art & Graphic Design students were shortlisted from 6000 submissions for the prestigious Secret 7” fundraising initiative. Seven popular music tracks were provided as part of the brief, with artists anonymously submitting their designs to the judges.

Level 3 in Graphic Design students Abbie-Louise Stanley and Elle Prudence tested their creative talent with The Internet’s Come Over and Toast by Koffee respectively and created unique artwork they felt best represented it. All of the 700 shortlisted artworks will then be auctioned to raise money for the charity Help Refugees.

Elle said “I thought the song I picked was really meaningful and I really liked the artist. I thought she’s really cool; she’s really young too which I thought was inspirational.

Our tutor Babs is very supportive. We go through all of our ideas with her and she’ll give us a little bit of feedback and how to improve it, which helps a lot.”

Elle continues “It feels amazing to be shortlisted – I was very excited and shocked. It’s a big achievement and something to put on my CV. It’s very emotionally uplifting, and I’m proud of myself.”

Graphic Design lecturer Babs Jossi said “Having our work selected to be part of Secret 7” has been really exciting - to have our designs displayed alongside those of some very high-profile artists and designers in the creative industry is such an honour. We’ve also helped to raise money for a very worthwhile charity. We are really proud to see our designs professionally produced, presented and displayed at the amazing Now Gallery in London.”

Well done to our Art & Graphic Design students!
