Great PR in Scotland for College with Local Press

Graphic design students from an Edinburgh college have been getting some hands on experience in the design world after completing a live project with Line Digital and Letts diaries.

Edinburgh’s Telford College got involved in the project after having a long standing relationship with Creative Director Rufus Spiller at Line Digital whose client list includes Letts.

The students were given the task to design a diary which was both innovative and practical for individuals to use. 

Helena Good, Graphic Design Lecturer at Edinburgh’s Telford College said: “This was a great opportunity for our students to completely immerse themselves in their design work and to experience what life would really be like working at a successful graphic design agency.

“In terms of benefits to the students themselves it gave them a real chance to work as part of a team and to see exactly what kind of briefs they would have to work to should they choose to continue down the graphic design path.”

Craig Fairgrieve, Web Development Manager at Letts said: “We were looking for some fresh input and new ideas for our diaries and thought it would be a insightful experience to work with the design students at Telford.

“Working with students on this project was great experience for Letts as it really helped to identify the different elements in which we should be considering for future designs of our diaries.”
