Beginning in early October, our Level 3 Graphic Design students have been working on their Thame Carnival Logo Project as part of their work experience. Students were met with the task of coming up with a new logo for the Thame Carnival 2022. This logo, once chosen would be used by the organisers for all advertising and promotional material of the event.
Last week, our Graphic Design students prepared to present their ideas to one of the Directors of the 21st Century Thame and other members of the Thame Carnival committee, while following their assigned theme, The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
The students all prepared their pitch and displayed their thought process for the design, draft copies and then the final logo. Some students added the logo to products to show the clients how the design might look once printed. Some examples of the designs displayed included themes of Crowns, Roses, The Commonwealth, Money, Medals and Orbs.
We would like to firstly thank those from the 21st Century Thame for visiting our Aylesbury Campus and taking the time to speak with our students and we all look forward to hearing the decision on the Final Design. Once decided, this will be used for all advertising and promotional material made for Thame Carnival 2022.
A congratulations goes out to the students that participated or assisted with the presentations. Regardless of the decision on the final logo, you all professionally displayed your designs and should be very proud of what you’ve achieved. A thanks also goes to Zam Faiz, Graphic Design and Digital Media Lecturer for helping students throughout the process and finally, Nicola Hieatt, Industry Placement Officer for contacting and developing this partnership for our Graphic Design Students, this couldn’t have been done without your continued help and support.
June 2022 Update:
We would like to congratulate Cassie Hooper, Level 3 Graphic Design student who's logo was chosen as the one to be used at this years event. Cassie wrote, 'I wanted the logo to have a special connection to the Queen and have relevance to her Platinum Jubilee, this years theme. The medal you see is based on the official Platinum Jubilee Medal. The colours are also based of this. To make it unique, I decided to add a crown to the pendant of the medal to make it more relevant to the Queen herself. The flowers I have used for the top half of the medal are the British Isles flowers. Each flower represents each British Isle, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales'.
