Graphic Design students work with Three Rivers District Council
Two of our Level 3 Graphic Design students are in the middle of a very exciting GAP work placement project for Three Rivers District Council.
Jonathan Quail and Sam Chambers have been set a brief to create an internal ‘Christmas Special’ magazine that highlights the achievements and success of employers at Three Rivers District Council. throughout 2017. With just three weeks to brainstorm ideas, design and print, Jonathan and Sam experience the pressures of the print industry by working to a tight deadline.
We managed to grab five minutes with Jonathan to see how he’s getting on. “This is such a great opportunity for both me and Sam. Working with a real life client and creating something for their business is so exciting. It’s been great to utilise the skills learnt in class, and it’s helped me expand my knowledge of layout and design on the Adobe Suite Programmes. I’d love to go to University next year so this is something I can add to my portfolio!”
Gurinder White, Senior Communications Officer at Three Rivers District Council has been working very closely with our students. She said: “Jonathan and Sam have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Since our initial meeting, they have been professional, pro-active and constantly thinking outside the box. They came up with a brilliant idea for the front cover, it will include a fusion of pictures of almost all of the staff members here at Three Rivers. I’m confident this will generate lots of engagement and I can’t wait to see what they produce!”.
GAP projects like this one enables students to develop their transferable workplace skills and help them get ready for the world of work. You can learn more about GAP here.
