Studio VisCom 01: Future Past

Studio brief

Future Past is a studio run in collaboration with The Roman Road Trust. Work produced from all project briefs could potentially be selected to be presented as part of a cultural festival based in this locality. Projects will encourage students to collect data based on archive material to build informative and visually appealing storytelling. The studio explores the past through archive materials in order to explore themes and issues that remain relevant today. Themes explored include: activism, archives and re-enactments.

The studio caters for students of graphic design, illustration and publishing exploring relevant and appropriate approaches, tools and techniques to communicate themes for presentation to an identified contemporary audience. Students will be enabled to build a portfolio of professionally curated outcomes that evidence an understanding of both motion, 3D, and print processes.
