Graphic Design students short-listed in Poster for Tomorrow competition

University of Portsmouth BA (Hons) Graphic Design students’ success in the Poster for Tomorrow competition.

As part of last year’s Professional Practice: Live Design Briefs unit, BA(Hons) Graphic Design Level 5 students were encouraged to enter the Poster for Tomorrow competition in July 2015. This is an International competition run by 4tomorrow, an independent, non-profit organisation based in Paris. The brief was to create a poster to raise awareness of the universal right to healthcare based around three key themes; Universal access to healthcare, eradication of preventable diseases, and access to clean water.

Daniel McCabe, Senior Lecturer of BA (Hons) Graphic Design, was delighted to report that 4 students from the course have been short-listed through to the judging process. The successful students are: Shahad Millibari, Johannes Leismann, Benjamin Cook and Eduardo Dario.

In addition to the students’ success, Benjamin Cook was also selected by the jury as one of the top 100 posters out of 4980 entries. Following a launch event in Paris on December 10th to celebrate International Human Rights Day, Ben’s poster is now being exhibited in 35 cities around the world! The work will also be featured in the forthcoming event catalogue and website.
