Following a public launch on Tuesday 28 July, join us online to explore the most exciting new names in design, media and screen.
Students at London College of Communication (LCC) have proven themselves as curious, committed and brave as ever while facing unprecedented challenges throughout their final terms.
Working from their homes around the world, they’ve continued to create work which brings fresh perspectives and truly innovative approaches to creative communications. Our upcoming Graduate Showcase is an opportunity for them to share their talents while emphasising their place as both the future and legacy of the College.
Developing the Graduate Showcase platform
Teams from across UAL and its six Colleges have been exploring the best ways to navigate new digital landscapes and open students' talents up to a global audience over a longer span of time. Made possible with the support of IBM, our resulting Graduate Showcase platform not only provides space for individual portfolios to shine, but also offers an opportunity for guests to explore curated collections and programme details for exciting online events.
Designed with a look and feel consistent with the upcoming UAL website redesign, the Showcase is complemented by a visual identity developed by leading design agency, Pentagram, which was inspired by the multiple tabs and windows familiar to any student working to deadlines online.
Public Events Programme
This year, student work from across LCC's Schools of Design, Media and Screen is also complemented by our upcoming digital Public Events Programme, which has been carefully curated to reflect the achievements of our College community and broader socio-cultural change.
From Tuesday 28 July – Friday 7 August, LCC staff, students and industry guests will host virtual events including practice-led performances and panel discussions, all of which will explore the future of the creative industries and highlight the ways our graduates have already started to make their mark on the world.
“Resilience, creativity and flexibility”
Natalie Brett, Head of London College of Communication and Pro Vice-Chancellor of University of the Arts London, praised the Class of 2020 for their determination to create outstanding work during a time of wider flux.
“Completing a degree and developing a final major project is hard work at the best of times without a global pandemic adding extra hurdles and barriers,” she said.
“Our students have used their resilience, creativity and flexibility to rise to the challenge. These are skills that industry and employers will be looking to harness, now more than ever.”
