First up Lucy Dodds‘ Travel Beyond Leisure touched on the continuing trend for collaged work with a slightly retro feel.
Jamie Fox went for exceptionally bold posters featuring fun typography and slogans inspired by the financial crash of 2008.
Simon Grove‘s work was particularly eye catching – drawing inspiration from 50′s horror comics to create posters as an educational resource promoting the idea of organ donation.
Marc Mclean showcased his beautiful typography on plain white cards arranged across the wall.
Amy Turner‘s fun 3D work looked at the psychological, commercial and environmental impacts of packaging.
David Elmes took a swipe at the advertising industry with his retro style graphics.
Lewis Flanders used primary brights to create images inspired by feelings of happiness.
Elaine Brown was inspired by layers of metaphors and rituals from both the Egyptian and Victorian worlds to make these delicate pastel coloured bowls.
Mark Owers mixes the old and the new in his avante garde furniture designs – combining concrete and wood, laser etching and steam bending to create bold architectural pieces.
Adem Drake had fun with the laser cutter – making spiky furniture units with feet that were more fun than practical, and colourful etched pendants.
Fine art graduate Laura Webster displayed spattered furniture which was a lot of fun.
My one wish would be that the Havering College students develop an online presence… very few can be found on the internet.
