Yes, you heard correctly, we've been working with Cardiff University! We're very pleased to have worked with Cardiff University over the last couple of months on their new and improved alumni magazine which is being distributed this month. Cardiff Connect, formerly Cardiff Magazine, is their biannual publication designed for their alumni community and packed with the latest news from the University. Learn more about this season's highlights from across the University and beyond by downloading the issue here!
The wonderful team in the alumni office approached us to design the illustrative front cover, to which of course we said a humongous 'yes'! They were keen to have something different to most alumni publications and show how the original colleges and universities across Cardiff have amalgamated into what is now Cardiff University. We discussed out collective ideas and the team were keen to visually represent the buildings as they are extremely distinctive to Cardiff alumni and would hopefully, if shown, bring back some happy memories for the readers. With this in mind, we decided to show a simple journey from each building to the new university and line the pathways with iconic Cardiff scenery and landmarks. As a resident of Cardiff it was a great to be able to visit, photograph (the buildings that are still standing) and illustrate them for the Cover of Cardiff Connect.
We've had some fabulous feedback and the staff at Cardiff University are very pleased with the results! As are we! Thanks for hiring Jessica Draws!
