Signs Express (Exeter) played host to the next generation of graphics specialists earlier this month.
Local school Isca College of Media Arts brought a group of Year 10 students who are studying for a vocational BTEC on Creative Media Production to our unit so they could compare the theory they’d been taught with ‘real-life’. Whilst with us they gained an understanding of how we deal with customers, our production processes from initial enquiry to delivery and the technical side of making signs – especially graphics.
Director Nick Baxter-Sibley, who hosted the visit, also gave an interview to the students for their College radio station. Nick commented “It was great to talk to the students – they were very focused and interested and posed some challenging questions”. Isabel Sastre, Art, Design and Media teacher, commented “We have seen our classroom learning applied to real jobs in real time. This has been an outstanding experience. Thanks you Signs Express”.
