EPC Booklets/Posters

While working at City University’s Division of Language Studies, I did some design work to promote the Final Year Project exhibition of the division’s English for Professional Communication students. For their final year projects (some of which I supervised), students would carry out a real-world publicity or fund-raising campaign for a local organisation or company.

The designs were created in Photoshop and were used for programme brochures, posters, banners and backdrops. The designs seem top-heavy because the top half of the design contains both a darker background colour and the main title. I couldn’t think of a good way to solve that problem.

The idea behind the design was to show the students in action and let people see the wide variety of activities the groups were involved in—from promoting dragon boating to encouraging recycling. The hexagon part of the design was intended to express feelings of togetherness and community (in the way the hexagons linked together).

The red design for Associate Degree students, while the blue one was for Higher Diploma students. The poster for the combined exhibition used purple (the colour you get when adding red and blue).

For the 2004 design (the exhibition in 2003 was canceled due to the SARS outbreak), I kept the idea of incorporating photos of the students working on their projects. This time, I put the put the photos into a flow chart that portrays the role of the students in presenting the messages of their host organisations to the public.
