We’ve been spending a bit of time with our friends at D&AD over the summer. We’re currently collaborating on a series of animations for The Blank Sheet Project, more information on which will be appearing soon.
And Dan also popped into the Graduate Academy last month to give a scribing workshop to their latest intake of creative graduates. The Academy represents a bridge between education and industry, offering a creative bootcamp over the summer to provide a final polish up of creative skills and other attributes valued in the workplace such as self-awareness, critical abilities and presentation techniques. Participants are chosen from the winners of the Student Awards, so it’s a select gathering of new creative talent.
The beauty of scribing is that it’s a great tool for both the internal and external stages of any creative process. It’s a way of seeing and organising your thoughts, playing with connections and profiting from the proximity of complimentary ideas. But it’s also a great way to share concepts, to tell a story persuasively, to show a client you’ve listened and to start to suggest some visual solutions. The workshop was relatively short, but served as a good introduction to scribing techniques. Dan got great feedback and we’re already talking about extending the session at next year’s Graduate Academy. Photos by Ruth Jones
