Statements of Intent

Statements of Intent is a degree show from the Graphic Communication graduates from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham.

In their own words they describe themselves as “graphic communicators who believe in the power of design to help people grasp new ideas and methods, make informed decisions, and interact with their surroundings more easily and more effectively.”

The show will present the newest, most innovative and original work from graduates who are passionate, committed and strive for the highest quality of design and communication.

The show provokes high expectations, claiming to “have communicated messages across borders and boundaries on subjects such as: consumer culture, the environment, political regimes, gender, architecture and the intricacies of language using communication mediums such as: typography, photography, infographics, electronics, programming, branding, bookbinding and typeface design.”

Having seen a preview of their work on their Tumblr page and website I am extremely intrigued to view the exhibition up-close as it has clearly involved a tremendous amount of time, effort, thought and creative visualisation. I am also interested in seeing how the show is exhibited in the space they have chosen.

It is hosted at The Rag Factory in London, a diverse space for people working in the creative industry. It has previously been used as a location for performance arts including theatre, film, dance, music and fashion. It is also a space to exhibit visual arts such as painting, sculpture, photography, installation and graphic design. The Rag Factory has been regularly used as a filming location by MTV and the BBC for shows such as Newsnight, the Culture Show and other music videos, short films and low-budget features.

If you would like to attend the show, it is open to the public on Friday 13th July between 10am and 9pm and Saturday 14th July between 10am and 6pm.

The address is The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage Street, London, E1 5LJ, and as it is situated just off Brick Lane, it has fast access to both Liverpool Street and Aldgate East tube stations.

Our statement of intents are many and varied but overarching all is to use our communication skills effectively and responsibly, strive for the best, and to look to the future with positivity and vigour.
