This blog gives a behind the scenes look at some of the activities that students on the BA Graphic Design course at Camberwell College of Arts get up to. For official course information please go to the university website.
At Camberwell we specialise in the relationship between new digital technologies and traditional analogue technologies. We are not limited to one or the other. We are interested in the relationships between new and old, digital and analogue, concept and form, manufactured and handmade.
We choose carefully who we work with in industry. We have established on going relationships with the cultural sector. They include the South London Gallery, Poetry Library, Wellcome Collection and the V&A. We work with the public sector and run projects with the London Borough of Lambeth, Kings College Hospital and the Swiss Embassy. We are interested in education as an industry. Our students engage with pedagogical research and challenge the structure of the institution through their work.
The majority of our tutors are practicing graphic designers and artists running their own companies. Students receive a sustained working relationship with these leading figures from the Graphic Design profession. Industry lives within the course.
