University students designs picked up for Christmas gift market

Six Northumberland University students have seen their final-year design project picked up by a publisher targeting the quirky Christmas gift market. How to Create a Flawless Universe is a ‘facsimile edition of a Time and Space Library guide’. Pitched somewhere between The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy and a children’s activity book, it comes with ‘step-by-step instructions and cut-out-and-paste templates’ for designing planets, animals and people. An Ebury Press spokeswoman says, ‘The graphic design is fantastic, but we also loved its fun and humour’. The group behind the book, published on 25 September, comprises Rob Longworth, Kayt Manson, Danny Miller, Carly Rowe, Sally Stephenson and Emma Tildsley.
