BA (Hons) Graphic Design final show 2015
In cooperation with the French Institute, Prague College is hosting an exhibition of the final work by the graduating 2015 BA (Hons) Graphic Design class. Exhibited work will consist of final projects and portfolios of 34 students from over 10 different countries. On display will be a wide range of work from the largest number of design graduates in the college's history. Exhibits range from digital and experimental media to fashion design, product design, corporate identity, print design and much more.
The poster for PREVIEW is based on the 34 individual faces of the exhibiting students. Each student was photographed, the image was manipulated and overlapped with another 33 images. The final picture was the abstract face of all participating designers, not individually recognizable, but one face representing the group. The low quality and chaotic visual language of the poster is intentional, reflecting the nature of working in a big group with many different personalities.
