In keeping with our community values, we regularly support students with meaningful work experience placements. With the extra space in our new studio, we were able to accommodate four DJCAD graphic design students this summer.
As well as having the opportunity to contribute their ideas to live projects, the students had an informative visit to Winter & Simpson Print where they learned about digital and litho printing, setting up artwork for the press, plate making, different production techniques, along with collating and binding. Having this knowledge and understanding will put them in good stead for their future careers.
In turn, our team were able to learn new ways of doing things from these talented young women who have shown excellent resilience and adaptability in continuing their studies over lockdown. We send our best wishes to Ada, Livvie, Amy and Jenny as they head back to college for their honours year!
