The Clive Baillie Scholarship Fund provides funding support for a final year GMD student who demonstrates ‘outstanding academic merit’. Clive Baillie himself recently visited LCC to meet students and give a talk about his work. An alumnus of GMD, Clive and his wife run one of the most successful film poster design studios in the USA. Their independently owned creative agency, BLT (established in 1992) works with the top 5 Hollywood studios.
Clive gave a fascinating talk on the craftsmanship that goes into each and every film commission, often taking a year to produce. When asked what he learned at LCC which is still important to him, he explained that design history is the most important aspect for all designers – understanding the contexts and provenance of visual culture is so vital to all creative endeavour.
