Graphic Design at Studio8 is run by Rachel Mayes, a first year Design student at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Rachel says: “Recently we’ve been designing our own illuminated letters as well as creating our own typefaces using Adobe Illustrator, which can then be turned into downloadable working fonts.
The children have also been learning how to use graphics tablets alongside drawing programs such as Sketchbook Pro and Adobe Illustrator to create their own images and graphics. Not all graphic design and illustration is digital however so we encourage the production of both computer created and hand drawn images.
In the past children have created illustrations for Studio8 programs as well as starting to think of their own Studio8 logos – graphic design certainly brings out the creativity of the children taking part!”
