Last night, in a busy, sweaty and very excited, Hoxton Gallery, was the Brighton Uni, BA Graphic Design and Illustration w.i.p show, Meanwhile, where I was absolutely blown away by the overall standard of work exhibited. I have always been under the impression the course was carried by the reputation of the illustration department, but to my (biased and pleasant) surprise, it was typography and print that stole the show.

With a focus on the ISTD (International Society of Typographic Designers) awards, the standard of typographic skill exceeded that of a usual second year design student. With work ranging from careful specimen books to typeface design (which was also made into an entire wood block character set, ligatures and all!), this year of graphic designers mean business.
