Look What I Saw in Edinburgh!

IMG_20150324_165300Huge thanks go to Victoria Ball and Molly Soar for their superb work today installing #LookWhatISawInEdinburgh the 3rd year Illustration student exhibition!

March 24 –April 15 –Edinburgh College of Art & The Red Door Gallery –

Throughout Edinburgh there are secret sites and pockets of charm known in detail by the locals that are a little bit harder for visitors to find. This March, The Red Door Gallery has asked Edinburgh College of Art 3rd Year Illustration students to re-consider Edinburgh, both as a world renowned city of historic interest, and as a working city, home to hundreds of thousands of residents, including themselves!

The Red Door Gallery is in search of a new perspective on our city and challenged this impressive group of 14 proactive, illustration students to design a print and matching badge which hints at Edinburgh. The challenge is to retain a strong sense of place, without relying on stereotypes, creating a depiction of how they would want Edinburgh to be portrayed to an international audience.

We cannot wait to see the results and look forward to helping establish the first rungs of professional practice on what promises to be a bright career path for this talented student group.
