Do more than work: Collaborate
No creative subject stands alone at AUB.
Cross fertilisation of ideas and techniques benefits everyone. And it’s exactly how students will experience the real world. Our collaborations extend beyond courses that work together, to the wider university world and links with the industry.
This morning, members of the Bestival team delivered a live brief to students, as part of AUB24.
Joe Elkins, Head of Brand Marketing at Bestival, set the following brief:
On Friday 21 April 2017, AUB hosted the first Graphic Design Educators’ Network (GDEN) regional networking event for the southern region.
GDEN is a subject association – its mission is to incite discourse about Graphic Design practices.
Second year BA (Hons) Graphic Design students had the opportunity to collaborate with the Movember Foundation, as part of AUB Human.
Movember are committed to helping men live happier, healthier and longer lives and they aim to address some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
BA (Hons) Textiles and BA (Hons) Architecture students have collaborated on ‘Two Make’ exhibition, which is currently on display at Walford Mill Crafts, Wimborne.
As part of their events and engagement programme, Walford Mill Crafts in Wimborne offered two pairs of first year Textiles and Architecture students the chance to undertake a 3 week collaborative residency.
18 BA (Hons) Acting, Costume and Performance Design, Creative Events Management and Make-up for Media and Performance students recently collaborated with outdoor theatre specialists And Now and creative producers Activate to deliver a 24-hour brief.
Students from BA (Hons) Graphic Design, BA (Hons) Architecture, BA (Hons) Visual Communication and BA (Hons) Modelmaking collaborate on a two-day sustainability workshop.
The workshop was part of the AUB Human series of events that aim to inspire and challenge students to consider their own obligation towards social, ethical and sustainable practices.
Alumni Christina Evans and Joe Walker have collaborated on Pample-mousse magazine, a platform for contemporary photography.
Christina graduated from BA (Hons) Photography in 2014, and Joe from BA (Hons) Architecture in 2015.
Three students from BA (Hons) Graphic Design have been working with Larmer Tree Festival to produce a festival newspaper.
Luke Brown, Amber Ruske and Emma McEvoy originally pitched the idea to Larmer Tree during AUB24, as a response to the 24-hour live brief: “How do we creatively and successfully roll out and embed the evolution of our identity in our marketing activity throughout the year, at the festival and beyond?”
Two third year BA (Hons) Modelmaking students, Phyllida Swift and Nic Browne, recently completed an installation for new Bournemouth restaurant, Ojo Rojo.
Phyllida and Nic were commissioned to build a bespoke installation for the new Mexican-inspired healthy eatery by co-owners Trevor Hill and JJ Adams, after making the door handles for the restaurant.
BA (Hon) Commercial Photography students have been commissioned by construction group Morgan Sindall to document various additions to the AUB campus.
Charlie Goodge, Gemma Thompson, Rebecca Milles, Will Ablett, Erin Sharp and Sam Bentley all worked to capture the projects.
Students and alumni from Bournemouth Film School at AUB are part of a short film that has received funding to be shot locally.
The Sunstone production company was chosen over 300 applications to receive £5,000 as part of the latest round of Creative England’s iShorts, delivered as part of the BFI NET.WORK – an agency which supports new and emerging filmmakers.
Earlier today, AUB received a visit from Professor Les Ebdon CBE, Director of the Office for Fair Access to Higher Education (OFFA).
Professor Ebdon met with students and academic staff to discuss access to Higher Education and to learn more about the creative work that AUB is doing to help those from all backgrounds to achieve their academic ambitions.
