Top of the World

15 May 2012

A design by one of our HND Year 1 students will shortly be the highest outdoor visual campaign in the world.

On 8th May, Tanzanian Wilfred Moshi set out as part of an expedition to climb Mount Everest.  Wilfred is currently at Camp 2, some 7000ft short of the summit. When he reaches the top (the first Tanzanian to achieve the feat), he'll be launching the Global Vision Project, an initiative by the Twende Pamoja Trust, and branded by HND1 Graphic Design student Jonathan Walton. 



In the past, Twende's Mike Knox has commissioned other design projects from our HND students, and this year he supplied our Year 1 class with a brief to design the 'Hand in Hand' campaign for the Global Vision Project. Jonathan's work was chosen following class presentations to the client.

The current stage of this amazing project will be launched imminently by Wilfred from the top of Mount Everest, followed by further events from Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh (June), and from Mount Kilimanjaro in
August.
