TOOL – Maker Lab Collective

The Maker Lab Collective would like to invite you to join them in “making”:

TOOL;

Something regarded as necessary to the carrying out of one’s occupation or profession. Something used in the performance of an operation; an instrument.

A device for performing work, tool suggests an implement adapted to facilitate a definite kind or stage of work and suggests the need of skill more strongly than implement.

A tool can be a physical object such as mechanical tools including saws and hammers or a technical object such as web authoring tool or a software program.

Furthermore; a concept can be a tool.

Creating is the tool, which allows the child’s mind to grow.

Words are a tool.

 

THE BRIEF;

Make a tool; use the tool to show what the tool can do.

This project is aimed at anyone who is interested in MAKING of any kind.

The deadline for this project is Monday 11th January 2016, resulting in an exhibition of work.

YCN Success for our BA (Hons) Graphic Design Graduands

YCN-AWARDS5

Huge congratulations to two of our BA (Hons) Graphic Design Graduands’ Katherine West and Connor Robertson who have won best overall in the YCN Awards last week. Katherine and Connor entered the Interflora category and created a clever and witty solution to the Interflora brief. The brief asked them to revive Grandparents Day and get people to remember their loved ones by marking the occasion with flowers. It was their playful yet sensitive treatment of the brief that shone and bagged them the overall award in the category. The ceremony took place at the Barbican and it was a fun and exciting night for all involved. Here are some pictures from the event:
