Our work with students:

Our very own Sam Collett is one of the teaching team on the University of Worcester Graphic Design Degree course.

Modules taught include:

Graphic Design Theory / Web Design and Build / Experimental Practice / Professional Practice / Live Brief

As well as a rewrite of the Graphics course in 2013, Sam also wrote the Game Art BA Hons course.

Why we think this project is sexy important

Sam Collett has been teaching on and off since he himself left University in 1997, with visiting lecturerships at John Moores University, Liverpool (Graphic Design); Univerity of Gloucester (Hypermedia); University of Westminster (Hypermedia MA); and also at HyperIsland Sweden. However the Graphic Design Course at the University of Worcester has become his home for two days a week during term time.

But even when not teaching students, teaching, sharing knowledge and generally looking at what is around is of extreme importance to us here at Practically. Every day is a school day, and every project gives us an opportunity to learn and teach.

To this end, we have taken on many students as yearly interns, primarily from University of Gloucester. Some of those have become cherished employees (George, Stu). And our wonderful designer Anna Peskova was also one of Sam’s best students. The cycle continues…

The Final Show

The most satisfying aspect of teaching is the awards and professional practice module, which culminates in the final show.

As part of this we help to create and curate the Worcester Degree Shows website, which is designed and made by the students themselves. Plus of course there is Private View – where everyone has a party, issues awards and generally congratulates themselves. A highlight of the year.

BrandSum+

A project in its own right, BrandSum+ started out life as a research project, created in class as part of Sam’s PGCert (an MA level course that teaches you how to teach).

This started out life as Digital Brand Review, which is a framework for reviewing the digital presence of any brand. The idea that all of a brand’s ‘channels’ – Facebook, Twitter, Search, Website – all need to be “Singing from the same song sheet”.

BrandSum+ is a quick, easy, and free way to see if everyone in and out of an organisation thinks the same thing about a brand.

Florentina Manole – Class of 2020

“Looking back, I can’t believe how many things I learnt from your lessons. I am very pleased with my evolution and thankful for attending this module.”

Foreign Projects

Part of the teaching schedule now involves a trip abroad with the students. Berlin, Barcelona, and Lisbon have all been visited.

From these trips come projects that are undertaken by staff and students alike.

Research Projects

Part of teaching is coming up with new ways of explaining and seeing, such as this “Design Diamond” – a useful way to explain how the process of design works and fails in some cases.

Informed Fashion

One of our current designers graduated from University of Worcester, and Informed Fashion was her final project.

The app was an online platform, and a community, allowing people easier access and more information about sustainable fashion brands available in their area, or favourite shopping destination. The concept focused on rewarding users for shopping more sustainably.

The project was very well received, winning The Best Design for Concept Award at the University Final Show.

Anonymous Feedback – Class of 2020

“The intensity and the dynamic of the work really allows you to explore further the subject of the design. Very career oriented as the briefs require focus, creativity and strong time management.”
