Real Job: Couldn’t end the year without at least ONE of our undergrads designing a typeface. Connie Worthington unpacks her excellent work in this report. She’s keen for feedback from our Typeface Design tutors or MAs! #typedesign @FredSmeijers @typefacedesign @CAFOD
Real Job: The task of designing degree show invitations is a hallowed tradition in many design schools, and our students have been doing it for almost 50 years.

Real Job: Arianne is working with @RFT_Cinema on an exciting exhibition showcasing their archive of Student-designed film posters dating back nearly 50 years. The archive is housed @UniRdgTypoColls.
