Students of FdA Digital Media Design at The University of Brighton present their graduation show at Towner from 12 to 17 June.
Level Up is a free exhibition which will showcase the best of the student’s creative work and you can expect to see fantastic examples of Graphic Design, Animation, Illustration, Motion Graphics, Interactive and Web Design.
This is the third year that Towner has worked with the course, who have produced digital displays for the contemporary art museum in previous years for various exhibitions.
For the past two years the students have been taking on a variety of rewarding projects in order to improve their creative skills. Group projects have helped them work well as a team and live briefs have given them the opportunity to liase with real clients in a professional situation.
Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley said “Towner is the perfect venue to hold The University of Brighton’s FdA Digital Media Design graduation show. Students will be able to see their work exhibited in an iconic gallery and share it with visitors as well as family and friends.”
The students have been inspired to create each piece of work and this exhibition is a celebration of their creativity.
As the course has continued the students have had the chance to specialise in different areas of the design industry such as motion graphics, branding, website design and animation – all of which will be represented at the exhibition.
Digital Media Design student at The University of Brighton, Jeanette King said “The exhibition shows off our creative development of a variety of skills learnt and developed through the course. We have all been able to find our own unique style and area of expertise.”
A main showreel containing elements from a wide range of work will be on display as well as usable touchscreen tablets, packaging designs and a vast array of print based work.
For many of the students this will be their first public exhibition and therefore a great deal of planning has had to go into deciding what work will be featured and how it will be presented.
The aim of this exhibition is to celebrate their best pieces of work and what they have managed to achieve over the 2 year duration of the course. . It also demonstrates the diverse opportunities that the Digital Media Design course has to offer.
Towner has given the students the opportunity to showcase their work collectively in a public space for the first time helping the students promote themselves in a professional environment and giving them the opportunity to network with industry professionals and discuss their various pieces with members of the general public.
