UCLan’s School of Art, Design and Performance (ADP) is holding an exhibition of graduates’ work from their masters courses until the end of October.
MYMA, a creative focus exhibition, showcases a selection of student experiences from courses such as Children’s Book Illustration and Toy Design to Graphics and Interior Design.
Various pieces of work have been photographed and displayed with informative descriptions of the practical projects and their theoretical underpinning.
MA Graphic Design student, Jenna Gardner, said: “My MA in Graphic Design has given me the flexibility to explore and define areas of personal and academic interest.” She is going to progress onto the PhD level of study in 2015.
MA Interior Design student Chen Zhao was a lucky graduate to be offered a job immediately upon completion of his studies.
He praised the course and its research for arming him with the skills needed to develop a winning proposal for a project he is working on in Beijing.
MA Toy Design student, Sandra Chaveznava, created a toy she is hoping to sell which enables children to identify similarities and differences among animals and explore basic body shape characters while developing motor skills.
The design work is displayed over two floors of UCLan’s Victoria Building for private and public showings.
