Professional Practice Module: Schools’ Poetry Competition Branding and Design Project

Following a successful project working with Canterbury Christ Church University Digital Media students in 2022, we were delighted to continue the relationship and collaborate on a professional practice module 2023.

Acting as the client and working with Canterbury Christ Church lecturer Celia Rumley and Head of Department Joanna Samuel, Canterbury Festival set a brief for students to create branding, layout templates and promotional materials for the 2024 Canterbury Festival Schools’ Poetry Competition.

Deliverables included a logo, booklet template for the Schools’ Poetry Anthology, a poster to promote the call out and also a short animation to be shared on Instagram. It was important that the design took existing Festival branding into consideration and that there was consistency across the assets created.

The quality of the work submitted was incredible and we were thrilled to have so many amazing designs to choose from. Below you can view a range of concepts submitted – we’ll be sharing the animations created across our social channels later this year.

We’d like to thank all of the participating students and wish them success in their careers as designers.
