UWTSD Graphic Design Exhibition


UWTSD Graphic Design Exhibition 2016

Friday night saw the opening night of the 3rd year exhibition for the UWTSD Graphic Design course. The evening was held at Swansea Grand Theatre and as usual the event didn’t disappoint. Showcasing an eclectic mix of design styles covering everything from branding and illustration through to packaging and clothing the students had all clearly put in endless hours of work and this shone through!

We were extremely proud that WATERS very own UX/UI Designer Leah Williams was the special guest for the evening, delivering a brilliantly clever and funny speech, if we do say so ourselves! It takes a lot of nerve to stand up in front of such a large and diverse crowd of people, so a massive well done to Leah :) and a huge thank you to the staff and students at UWTSD  for the invitation to officially open the event.

Over the years WATERS has forged a close relationship with the UWTSD Graphic Design course and our unique 3rd Year Design Internship Scheme has helped students to develop their own personalities in design and provide invaluable commercial experience and exposure. Experiencing first hand what life is really like working in a creative agency. As part of this year’s Internship the team at WATERS voted for a ‘Standout Student’, we were very pleased to award this to Tom Boote who said it was “Without doubt my proudest moment at university.”
