Getting Started

30 August 2015

On Friday of last week, our HN groups presented their Induction Week solutions. The project was devised and directed by HND2 students Alex De Sousa, Aiste Piechaviciute and Olga Komanek, and the brief was to design a 12" record sleeve for a short compilation of music of your choice.  A key restriction was that computers weren't to used. The students worked in teams and the winning design came from a team led by Rumana Sayed and Rhys McGeary.

Our NC group sat in on the presentations in R310 and their votes determined thew winners. They also handed in their own induction work - a set of moodboards exploring Pop Art and inspired by their visit  earlier in the week to the Museum of Modern Art.

To finish off the first week, all the groups met up at the Innis & Gunn Bar and Kitchen on Edinburgh's Lothian Rd.  Innis & Gunn sponsored our 2014 Show and provided us with a major One Week project last year.
