Next Up 2017

The Next Up event for final year UAL students took place at Shoreditch Town Hall in March. This year, the event brand identity was set as a project option for final year LCC GMD students as part of the course Industry Practice Unit in the Autumn term. The chosen design, by Berrun Gur, was implemented across all aspects of the conference materials.

Next Up speakers included a wide range of practitioners such as Richard van der Laken (Design Politie), Joanna Choukeir (UsCreates) and Patrick Burgoyne Creative Review). Also included in the proceedings were recent UAL graduates who had set up their own initiatives and practices

According to final year student Shalyn Wilkins, “Next Up 2017 was insightful and informative. A great variety of speakers, many flown out especially for the event. It was encouraging to see recent graduates talk about their journey after university as well as practising professionals in their industry. 

As well as the talks, there was continuous break out sessions throughout the day, filled with workshops with professionals including D&AD New Blood. 

Thank you to the organisers and UAL! I feel that the event us all some great insights into the life after graduating, as well as inspiration for current final major projects.”
