For our last project of first year, we were given a previous Roses competition brief. We were asked to come up with a campaign for the new words that go into the Oxford English Dictionary every year.
So, for my response to the brief I made my own book of poetry. I wrote a poem for a selection of the new words and put them in the book. I tried to give the book a dictionary feel by using a similar font and typesetting the text in a similar way.
I am very happy with the results, and I'm glad the final result looks professional.

Emily visited uni the other week to give all the Graphics and Illustration students a lecture on her work.
She mainly works as an illustrator but said that she thoroughly enjoys design but doesn't get to do it as much as she would like. I was already familiar with her work before the talk but I found it very interesting the way she talked about how a lot of her commercial work she didn't really like and just did what she was asked.
I found her very down to earth and very honest about the industry!
Very jealous I won't be able to go to the pick me up exhibition at Somerset House until May the 3rd. It looks really good if you into anything graphics based, especially print.
Rob Ryan and Print Club have transferred their studios there for the short exhibition so the public can see them at work. I would love to see Rob Ryan at work!
Looks like a great place to visit- if only I was in London!
