A new generation of graphic designers will be showing their work at the Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre in Hopwood Lane from Wednesday 11th to Friday 20th June.

Calderdale College Graphic Design students on the BA Hons course, now in its second year, have been invited to mount their degree show at the centre which is dedicated to encouraging local business growth, particularly in digital and new media industries.

Eight graphic design graduands will be exhibiting a wide variety of work ranging from logo design and illustration to editorial displays and canvas paintings. Free design consultancies will also be on offer for businesses on Thursday 12th June from 10am – 4pm. Trevor Flannery from Storm Brand Design in Elland will open the show at a private viewing on Wednesday 11 June. It will be open to the public from 10am – 4pm on 12th – 13th and 16th – 20th June.

"The Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre is the ideal venue for Calderdale College's Graphic Design Degree Show", said Ha Smith, Business Development Manager at the Centre. “Nurturing talent and retaining skills in the region is important to us and we are delighted to be able to provide a showcase for the students' work. We have a lot of businesses in the centre, with conference and meeting rooms fully booked, so there will be a lot of footfall through the show."

Graphic Design graduand Sarah Yates, 21, is among those exhibiting. She joined Calderdale College at 16 on the Graphic Design BTEC course and has worked her way all the way through to degree level. She has already had a number of commissions, with the NHS and BBC on her client list, and established a company, Faunagraphic. "I've been freelancing for four years and have a constant flow of enquiries now", she said. "We're all very excited at the opportunity of having such a good platform for our work". Appointments for the free design consultancy can be made by ringing 07927 486943.
