WEB POSTER EXHIBITION - British posters - the students of Richard B. Doubleday

The following text and pictures were kindly provided by Richard B. Doubleday

Richard B. Doubleday is currently teaching a course Graphic Design in Britain at Boston University British Programmes.

This is an undergraduate and graduate course that provides a thorough grounding of perceptual and problem solving skills to graphic design, with emphasis on the selection and communication of appropriate pictorial images, symbols, and typography. The study of methods and procedures used in the practice of graphic design are taught in relation to the contemporary culture of England and the cultural diversity of London. Taking advantage of the resources within London allows students to make meaningful connections in their own work. The course also aims to provide graphic design students with a cultural experience, become aware of London’s contribution to graphic design, learn the history of visual communication in London and focus on his or her own decision making process about graphic design in the context to London.

The work included in this exhibition was created by current students who have taken the Graphic Design in Britain elective. The assignment was to enlighten, inform and promoteThe Royal National Theatre, Summer/Autumn 2004.
