by HCA Illustration in Hereford, Herefordshire, England

We are a small dedicated arts college (Hereford College of Arts) with a last minute opportunity to go to New Designers 2018. We're a small group (6 in total) in the third year of our Illustration and Illustration Animation degrees. While we are fundraising in the community, we have to work twice as hard to make up the money and compete with larger universities. Costs we need to cover include renting the space at New Designers, van hire to transport our work to London, travel, accommodation and print and publication costs.

This is a fantastic opportunity for us to promote our illustration in a professional environment, gain confidence, knowledge of the industry, make meaningful connections within the creative circles and spread the word about our college.  New Designers is regarded as the UK’s leading graduate design show and the most important event for emerging designers. It's a highly respected and successful platform to bring new designers and the commercial world together.

"New Designers led to me gaining multiple opportunities and contacts  within the industry, Including publishers and agencies as well as work  placements at Hallmark and Moonpig. Equally important is that it also provided a great environment to promote the college and the course."

We have been fortunate enough to receive an offer of subsidy from New  Designers who were impressed with our college the previous year, but as we are such a small group we would be grateful for any support. Thanks!
