Final-year graphics students at Wolverhampton University set out to overhaul the “tired and predictable definitions of graphic design” in a new book called RSVP.
Me Mate Design Source is one solution offered. It is the brainchild of student Adrian Wilde, and its label says it is an “original blend of innovation and creativity”. You just spread on a little bit over any graphic design task and the results are delicious.
Wilde deserves a pat on the back for fulfilling the criteria listed by every prospective employer (see next week’s DW Education Supplement). He had a wacky idea, didn’t shy away from it and his personality – which obviously matches his name – is to the fore. “Best before end of university. Employ in a cool place. Contains only the finest ingredients,” says the accompanying blurb.
RSVP is launched tomorrow night at the Coningsby Gallery in London.
