Coventry University’s in-house Creative Design Studio has designed the university’s 2001 Annual Review, which incorporates a temporarily revamped treatment of its corporate identity. Designers Zenon Texeira and Gary Maddison have reworded Coventry University as Somehow Different, using an identical typeface, to provide an ‘insight into the personality of the organisation behind the corporate image’, according to a design studio spokesman. Two freelance photographers worked on the review, Andy Paterson and David Bamber, and shots include students on a North Wales field trip in simulated refugee camp conditions. The review is launched this month.
