Today we attended a UAL PG Community Pop Up Common Room Event at the Wellcome Collection, to have a special tour of Can Graphic Design Save Your Life? Exhibition, given by one of the curators Rebecca Wright, who is also the Programme Director and Course Leader of MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, and partner in the design practice GraphicDesign& .
The show charts the influence of graphic design on delivering messages, and given its venue, particularly around health, and was cleverly designed into 6 sections, the shape of which was reflected on plan. (More later on this.) What was very clear was the visual joy of graphic design to a non-design audience.
