Funky new T-shirt designs thanks to The Arts University College, Bournemouth

15 June 2010

Follow That Fire Engine would like to thank Nicola Will, and students on the National Diploma in Art and Design course, for their hard work, dedication and creative genius.  Thanks to them, the Follow That Fire Engine shop now hosts some very cool and funky new T-shirt designs.  If you want to look good this summer, there’s no excuse, you know where to go…

Nicola explains how the project came about:

I asked for volunteers to produce some quirky illustrations and graphic designs for products to advertise the FTFE expedition.  Alongside meeting the demands of their course, these talented guys felt the idea of the trip was so crazy and moving that they wanted to have a go.  A lot of people have been, or will be affected by cancer at some point in their lives and this, for all of us involved was a key issue. The team worked to a loose brief and wanted to get across the personal nature of the trip, so incorporated lots of hand drawn imagery into the designs.  The aim was to produce designs which would be flexible enough to apply to a variety of products and wide ranging in style and imagery, to appeal to a broad consumer base.  Encouraging people to follow the progress of the fire engine, around the world, was also important, and incorporating elements from the different places will hopefully remind people of the enormity of the task the crew face.

The design team was made up of staff and students from the National Diploma in Art and Design course, at The Arts University College Bournemouth.  The students are predominately in their first year of a two year course, which will take them on to university.  James Smith, is the only exception, having just completed the second year with a distinction grade.  James used the brief as the basis for his final major project and produced an enormous amount of graphic design work for products and promotional material.  He has worked fanatically and has enjoyed every minute, which has given him the opportunity to experience working with clients.  He is progressing on to BA Hons Visual Communication at AUCB specializing in Graphic Design.
