A week ago, the walls of London College of Communication (LCC) were covered with red, white and blue posters for a special networking event during which MA Publishing students welcomed a French cohort of 33 final year MA Publishing and Communication (Master Ingénierie éditoriale et communication) students from Cergy-Pontoise University, near Paris.
Where do you come from? What is your understanding of the term Design Culture? [And how do we relate the two?]
Michael Clarke, Senior Lecturer, Contextual and Theoretical Studies, at London College of Communication’s School of Design ponders these questions in relation to LCC’s new BA (Hons) Design Culture’s course.
Students on London College of Communication’s MA Publishing course found they had the right ingredients from all over the world when they collaborated to create Sweet Spoon Magazine, a glossy lifestyle magazine for “those who have a passion for baking experimentation.”
The magazine, created by students from Italy, Norway, Ireland, USA and Brazil during the Spring term, features original recipes, sumptuous photography and a range of features on London’s eclectic baking scene, including an interview with Jamie Oliver discussing his earliest food memories.
So what goes into the making of a magazine? We asked some of the young publishers what ingredients they brought to the Sweet Spoon table and how they judged the overall flavour of studying at LCC.
During the month of May, Moose on the Loose, the first Biennale of Research organised by the UAL Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC), will explore and celebrate photography and research with events at the London College of Communication (LCC) and at venues across London.
It will include exhibitions, films, study days, conversations, research meetings and launches, exploring themes of war and conflict, women’s photography in the 1990s, the history and legacy of community and photography in the 1970s, photography and queerness and photography and the contemporary imaginary.
