Mark and Keryn have done a great job of putting up the New Designers Exhibition, the 2nd of our two graduate showcases in London this year. This is physically a considerably bigger show than the D&AD exhibition and includes the majority of this year’s Falmouth Illustration graduating students. This year the students have done a great job of preparing their boards for the exhibition with the help of Cally back in Falmouth. The final show is a credit to the effort that everyone (staff and students) have put in this year. The Private view kicked off at 6pm and before long there was a healthy number of people gathering around the Falmouth stand. In attendance was Ginny Button, Director of the Falmouth School of Art while industry visitors included Sheri Gee from the Folio Society and Louise Power from Walker Books amongst others. Also paying a visit during the evening was recent Falmouth Illustration alumni Will Grill, who last week was awarded the Kate Greenaway Gold Medal for his book ‘Shackleton’s Journey’, a project that he began while a student at Falmouth. Here are some pictures from the night….
Apologies for the blog being dormant for some time. I am just preparing to re engage with updating it on a regular basis. We have lots of news and images to upload since the last post including our stands at D&AD New Blood and New Designers. I shall hopefully be able to start feeding this into the blog over the next week or so.
